The Association of Irish and Celtic Festivals (AICF) is proud to host its second annual St. Brigid’s Day Concert, with generous support from the Embassy of Ireland, celebrating an Irish saint, and Celtic goddess, with music from a mix of celebrated female Irish musicians. St. Brigid is one of Ireland’s patron saints, although not quite as famous as her male counterpart, St. Patrick, but has legends and tales all her own. The AICF, which is dedicated to bringing the Irish culture to the United States via Irish and Celtic Festivals, wanted to celebrate her importance and bring her holiday, February 1st, to the forefront. Taking place on February 1 at 8:00 p.m. EST, the AICF will be showcasing 10 acts from all over the world, highlighting some of the best female Irish music and dance performers out there. From established acts to up and coming groups, this all-female celebration highlights an important piece of Celtic culture.
This St Brigid’s Day event is a programme brought to you by the Department of Foreign Affairs.
