Irish & Celtic Music Concert at the Edge Center in Bigfork

This year’s season of performances at the Edge Center in Bigfork starts with a group that will provide an amazing variety with an equally amazing line-up of instruments. The group’s name is “EIRA” and they provide music and entertainment from Ireland, Scotland, Newfoundland, Canada, Wales, China, Scandinavia, and the U.S. They perform contemporary, traditional, and original songs, tunes, and stories. Their program is English, Gaelic, Irish, Welch, and Chinese played on fiddle, ehru, guitars, bodhran, bouzouki, button accordion, and whistles. That should satisfy everyone who attends the concert and leave a little extra to talk about.

The Duluth-based group provides a mix of music and instruments that will be had to find regardless of where they are from. The word "eira" means "snow" in Welsh and certainly is appropriate for the group’s origin and where they typically perform. The artists in the group provide a wide range of talents and come with an equally wide range of backgrounds.

Join us as Eira performs Irish Celtic music at the Edge Center on Friday, March 16th at 7:00 p.m.!


Operating support is made possible in part by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Arrowhead Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
