Join in on an interesting event at the American Irish Historical Society that mixes culture, history, arts all together! I have on hold spaces and depending on level of popularity can add more.
Edel Breathnach, Moya Brennan, and Cormac de Barra "Weaving a Celtic Past" The Society welcomes Edel Bhreathnach and musicians Moya Brennan and Cormac de Barra to our headquarters on Fifth Avenue for their presentation entitled: "Weaving a Celtic Past." Through song, history, music and images of books and manuscripts protected by Irish Franciescans, Brennan, de Barra, and Breathnach weave a vivid portrait of Celtic history. Edel Bhreathnach is a historian of medieval Irish history and literature and is deputy director of the Micheál Ó Cléirigh Institute for the Study of Irish History and Civilisation at University College Dublin. Moya Brennan is the lead singer for Grammy award winning Irish band Clannad, and Cormac de Barra is a traditional harpist.
The program is a narrative lecture, interspersed with songs and music performed by Brennan and de Barra. Bhreathnach says the presentation is "the story of preserving and reviving the memory of Irish identity."
This even it open to the Public.
