Event Description

Our next community hangout in The Wild Geese Virtual Síbín will take place on Monday, December 23rd at 5:00 p.m. Eastern (U.S.) Time.  We'll be joined by special musical guest (and fellow Wild Geese member), Mary Courtney.

Mary is a native of County Kerry.   She grew up in a musical family in the parish of Castlegregory near the sea, a likely beginning for this remarkable singer and guitarist. Whether accompanying herself, or holding the rhythm line with her trad band, Morning Star, she is a consummate musician. Her music is an engaging collaboration of traditional Irish music and a progressive social conscience born of a political education in the United States. Her bodhrán playing offers another dimension to her exceptional performance. Courtney has used her music to spread Irish culture and to educate her audience about the struggles of the Irish people. From rock ‘n’ roll to the ethereal strains of some ancient Celtic bard, Mary can sing anything, and sing it unforgettably.

Our live broadcasts from The Wild Geese Virtual Síbín give us all an opportunity to interact and learn from some of the "movers and shakers" in the worldwide Irish community.  Mary will be sing a few songs for us, and she'll also be telling us about her Christmases as she grew up in County Kerry.   We encourage our members to use the live chat function here on the site to submit questions, comments, and requests during the live hangout in the Síbín.

You may visit Mary's official website, www.MaryCourtneyMusic.com, to learn more about Mary herself and her music.

We look forward to hanging with you in The Wild Geese Virtual Síbín this Monday!
