John Byrne Band
October 10-18th, 2015
Join the Cultural Bridge Project & John Byrne Band in Ireland Oct 10-18! Check out the facebook invite for more information and to connect!
We'll get to enjoy natural beauty, history, culture, and warm hospitality of Ireland while spending the nights listening to and playing music in traditional sessions with the John Byrne Band, who've performed with some of the top names in Celtic music like Solas.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Cultural Bridge Project organizer Lisa Chosed has been on the Ireland trip in 2013 and 2012 and is happy to share her experiences with you and answer questions you may have!
The southern route, which is in collaboration with Cultural Bridge Project, will be going to Shannon, Dingle, Killarney, Kinsale, Kilkenny, & Dublin. There is also a northern route option after which you can continue on to this tour.
For a true Irish cultural experience, we will spend some time in a Celtic speaking area, have a bodhran (Irish drum) workshop, experience the history of these towns through optional walking tours, and visit some great pubs across Ireland to hear John's band play and if you're a musician, participate in traditional Irish music sessions!
2 nights in most of these cities with options for free time as well as concerts and sessions in a variety of locations.
The group will be traveling by bus along with the band in some of the most beautiful spots in Ireland.

$200 refundable deposit due at time of reservation and final payment due by June 27th.
