MURFREESBORO—Feeling a need for a bit of music from the auld sod? Then don’t miss the first Irish Music Day on Saturday, Feb. 11, on the MTSU campus!

MTSU’s School of Music is collaborating with the Franklin, Tennessee-based Authentic Ireland Cultural Enrichment organization to conduct the daylong event. It will include workshops for traditional singing, step dancing, fiddle, Irish flute, bodhran and bouzouki as well as classes in the Gaelic language and other associated topics.

The day will culminate at 7 p.m. with a special public concert in Room 101 of the University’s Saunders Fine Arts Building.

The workshops cost $40 each with a discount for multiple sessions, and the closing concert costs $10 per person. MTSU students with a valid ID will be admitted free.
