The Center for Irish Music invites you to dress up in your finest, bring your friends and join us at the Celtic Junction Arts Center for Éigse CIM, A Gaela Event.
Éigse [eg-shuh] is an Irish word used for festivals celebrating traditional Irish arts and culture. It is in this spirit that we gather for an evening to raise funds for The Center for Irish Music and the mission of handing down traditional Irish music.
This semi-formal evening event includes two ticket options for attendees: come early to share a meal, or join us later in the evening for the silent auction and concert featuring the stellar traditional Irish music of the CIM Instructors who boast recording, award winning, and world touring artists among their number.
Thanks to everyone who made our 2017 Éigse event a massive success. We look forward to seeing you on Saturday February 24th, 2018!
