Irish Music Coming to the Ozark Folk Center

It is good to be back and writing about all things Irish in the Ozarks again!  So, I wanted to update you on some Irish music coming to the Ozark Folk Center in Mountain View, Arkansas in June, 2012.

In their own words:

The Ozark Folk Center of Mountain View, Arkansas is America’s only facility that works to share the heritage and way of life of the Ozark Mountain people. It’s lively, it’s entertaining, and it makes learning about Ozark history and heritage loads of fun. It’s an adventure in yesterday’s Ozark way of life that you can see, touch and enjoy today.”

St. Louis Irish Arts will be coming to the center June 15-16, 2012.  They will bring a unique brand of Irish Folks dance and music for the two day event.

St. Louis Irish Arts Incorporated is the local branch of the Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann, a worldwide organization founded in 1951 to preserve and promote Irish traditional music, song, and dance.  Though our head office is located in Monkstown Dublin, there are over 400 branches of the organization worldwide with 44 of these branches in North America.  St. Louis Irish Arts Inc, is one of the largest branches of Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann in North America and currently has the largest number  of Junior members.

You can find out more information about the event, and the rates at the Ozark Folk Center at the Ozark Folk Center Season Rates Page.
