The Gulf Coast Cruinniu is a weekend-long online Irish Music Gathering, for all who love Irish music, song and dance.
June 18-20. online via Zoom.

The Cruinniu supports Irish music professionals who have been hard hit by the pandemic, and we try to grow the community of Irish Music lovers.
The instructors/performers are world class. The online classes provide students with an almost one on one learning experience!

Special this year: a class for students who are classically trained but want to expand their horizon to Irish Fiddle. Eimear Arkins is the teacher for this class, and she is fantastic. This will be a great summer activity for students!! watch the promo video here!
