I'm new to this web site and would like to know what sort of events are of interest to site members. Our small non-profit sponsors two weekend festivals of workshops each year, focusing mostly on sean-nós, Gaeilge, and trad music. Are these the types of events that others are interested in? Are classes/workshops more interesting, or are other members more interested in competitions, on-line learning, or something else? Our goal is to help preserve and promote traditional Irish cultural arts -- what could we do to interest you?
Any and all suggestions would be welcome. Thank for the input!
Hi, Kimberly. I don't know how this discussion you started "slipped through the cracks," but I'm glad I finally found it.
I can tell you the workshops and events you've described would be met with a great deal of interest, especially by the folks in our community from the Pacific Northwest. A bit further afield as well, I think. I think the music and dance would interest the most, but there are quite a few here who range between Gaeilge "dabblers" and fluent speakers. So the language would probably interest quite a few here as well.
Please share a bit more about your organisation. Oh, and welcome to The Wild Geese! :-)
