Zahatar: Acoustic String Band’s “The Little Country”album on Kickstarter through July 4th!
We want to have the opportunity to record an album version of The Little Country song cycle, which began as single melody lines in the appendix of one of Charles de Lint’s urban fantasy novels from the early 90’s. These tunes had never before been arranged for string band in their entirety, until now. Zahatar recently held a sold-out performance of the song cycle, and recording an album is our next endeavor.# Added by Christopher Grano .
We love playing Celtic music, and The Little Country is a project that’s very near and dear to us. We want to share this experience with the world!
Please check out our Kickstarter page and consider a pledge - most reward tiers include either a digital copy of the album or a physical copy or both!

Dublin Harpers’ Circle
A harpers’ circle, set up after a truly inspiring week at Scoil na gCláirseach, Autumn 2005 (www.irishharpschool.com, highly recommended…)# Added by tumeltyni .
We play the wire-strung harp, some of us travelling from outside Ireland to be at the monthly gatherings usually in the Dublin area. This is the Yahoo group we’ve been using to coordinate the events, the first of which was in September 2005.
If you’re interested in coming along to one, drop me a line or check out the group!

Our sessions are geared towards beginner/beginner freindly, but all levels are welcome as long as the beginners get plenty of time to play at their speed.

centohiotrad - Central Ohio Trad
This group is devoted to announcements (and perhaps sparse discussion) related to the Irish traditional music scene in central Ohio. The list is open to both musicians and listeners.# Added by mconners .
Whoever you are, we hope you will announce any concerts, workshops, festivals, etc., of interest to central Ohioans. This might include, for example, festivals in Cincinnati, Cleveland, or even Pennsylvania or Michigan if big enough. This will also help us coordinate session information, and perhaps provide a way for visitors to get in touch with local musicians.
Our goal is to have announcements about every public event of interest to central Ohio devotees of Irish music.
