Proceeds from the sale of this CD go to supporting programming at the Center for Irish Music, a non-profit, 501c3 community music school in St. Paul, Minnesota, USA.

This live recording was made on June 23, 2007. It was an amazing weekend of sharing and learning - and an amazing night of music and storytelling. We hope you enjoy this recording in the spirit it was made – as an educational, inspirational piece of art.

The Young Irish Musicians Weekend strives to be the premier North American educational and social weekend exclusively for musicians under the age of 21. This weekend is an opportunity for our next generation to be the main focus, to learn from master’s of the art of traditional Irish music without the stress of competition or performance. The Weekend features instrument, style & repertoire workshops, sessions, concerts, socializing and more. Open to students of all instruments & levels under age 21. We are inspiring the next generation of upcoming Irish artists to be the best musicians they can be.

The Young Irish Musicians Weekend is presented by The Center for Irish Music. The Center for Irish Music is a non-profit, 501c3 organization teaching traditional Irish music to students of all ages on a variety of instruments. It is the Center’s vision to support the traditional Irish music community in the Twin Cities into the future.
