St. Patrick's Day with the Blue Ridge Irish Music School
Free & Open to the Public!

Join us for this Special Presentation where members from The Blue Ridge Irish Music School (BRIMS) will teach us and entertain us with the Irish tradition of music and dance. BRIMS is dedicated to teaching the living art of traditional Irish music, as well as to fostering a dynamic environment for it in our community. Irish traditional music was developed by the Irish people, both at home and in countries where they have emigrated in the last several centuries, and is now played and enjoyed by many without any familial connection with Ireland. BRIMS offers regular classes in Irish traditional music on various instruments, presents educational workshops, social events, and actively supports the local session scene. BRIMS is constantly seeking new opportunities to teach Irish traditional music and its social context to our community and is dedicated, in all of their educational efforts, to nurturing and supporting musical integrity and the learning process.
