Minnesota Irish Music Weekend logo MIM@HOME

Join us for the 14th annual Minnesota Irish Music Weekend! 

Presented by the Center for Irish Music, Minnesota Irish Music Weekend is a unique festival that pairs world-class traditional Irish musicians and teachers with learners of all ages for a weekend of workshops, lectures, sessions and concerts.

Each of our visiting artists is recognized for their musical mastery and will offer insights and techniques to help learners tap into the deep roots of traditional Irish music.

The 2022 event will be held in person, with opportunities for virtual participation, at our home at the Celtic Junction Arts Center. We plan on offering a limited virtual workshop program for adults. The Saturday Night Master Artists Concert will be broadcast live.

We are thrilled to be offering three in-person programs in 2022:

2022 Visiting Master Artists: 

  • Kathleen Conneely (Bedford/Longford) – whistle
  • Seán Clohessy (Limerick/Boston) – fiddle, concertina
  • John Coyne (Limerick/Boston) – bouzouki, song
  • Ivan Goff (Dublin/New York) – flute, uilleann pipes
  • Eimear Arkins (Clare/St. Louis) – fiddle, song
  • Natasha Sheehy (Limerick/Boston) – accordion
  • Sky Kelsey (Alaska/Colorado) – banjo, fiddle, flute

Additional information will be announced soon! Sign up for the Center for Irish Music’s newsletter to stay in the loop.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund, and by the Government of Ireland: Emigrant Support Programme.
