First Friday Art Walk at MIHC

Join us at the Maine Irish Heritage Center on the corner of State and Gray Streets anytime between 5:00 – 8:00 PM on Friday, October 1st, to hear superbly talented local musicians play traditional Irish music on various instruments. Alongside the lively tunes, we’ll also have accomplished artists exhibiting their work. Stop by and sit for a while!

Traditional Irish Music Made in America

Will Woodson (flute, uilleann pipes) and Caitlin Finley (fiddle) play sparky and driving traditional Irish music grounded in the textures and rhythms of the rich Irish-American soundscape of the 1920s and 30s. With roots in the living Irish musical cultures of Boston, New York City, and Philadelphia, and tremendous admiration for the first generation of recorded Irish musicians, the duo conjures up the sounds of the dance halls, vaudeville theaters, and house sessions central to Irish-American music from the first half of the twentieth century.
