Irish Cultural Day, October 22, 2016
Want to learn an instrument? Step dance or set dance? Speak Irish?
Join us for an afternoon of free workshops in Irish music, dance, and culture, led by members of the Rochester Irish community. This event, which has been run for 14 years at Nazareth College, is moving a mile up the street to St. John Fisher College!

We'll get together on the 1st Floor in Cleary Auditorium, and disperse to classrooms at 12:30.
Parking is free! Visitors can park in the A lot, which is very close to Kearney Hall, straight ahead from the East Avenue entrance.
If parking lot A is full, lots C, D, E, and F (parking map) are also free for visitors on that day.
Never a dull moment on a college campus! The road immediately in front of Kearney Hall is closed for construction in October. You'll need to walk around the building to the side entrance as in the picture below.
Workshop Section A: 12:30-2:00
Workshop Section B: 2:15-3:45
Bring a recording device if you can!
This is especially important for the Learning By Ear workshop, and many other workshop leaders will also be quite happy to let you record tunes and techniques to practice by ear.
