Fest Deiz & Workshops (Accordeon + Percussion) – Belfast

BreizhEire is very happy to announce its first event in Belfast, with musicians from France and the west of Ireland!

The day will start with two high-quality workshops in Madden’s Bar: percussions and accordion.

Participants will have a unique opportunity to learn from percussionist Szymon Miśniak (member of Bal Kuzest currently touring with Sharon Shannon) and discover and practice Breton rythms. Bring a bodhrán or other drum, all levels welcome.

Eric Cabedoce will introduce Breton tunes, rythms and techniques. Button boxes, concertinas and all levels welcome. http://www.myspace.com/443403953

Pre-booking is advised for both workshops by contacting BreizhEire: breizheire@gmail.com

We will then be expecting dancers and non-dancers alike for an afternoon of dance to the sound of Breton instruments (flute, accordion, clarinet, bagpipe and bombard) in An Droichead. No need to know the dances, come and learn with us while having fun!
An Droichead doesn’t have a bar, but you can bring your own drinks.

Breton Singing Days – Videos!

Super Night at the Conradh Na Gaeilge!

Big Thanks to the Conradh, the public (nearly 200 people!), and, especially to all the volunteers that offered their help to make this night as very special night.

It is not often that we can offer this level of artistic quality, here in Ireland. A big thanks to Brigitte Kloareg, Katell Kloareg & Yann Fanch Perroches from coming all the way from Brittany and to the local band, NeKetTomTom from Galway. We would also like to acknowledge the support of the Arts Council.

It was a night like any other in Dublin, a bit of interceltic conviviality. Great participation to the dance, it looks like the monthly dancing sessions in Dublin have made a few pros!

Here are a few videos from Sylvie:
