Lessons and Workshops
We also continue to offer private and group lessons for kids and adults, as well as occasional workshops with accomplished local players, and distinguished guest musicians. The branch has worked closely with the Strayaway Child Concert Series to 'create a home for traditional music in Michigan', assisting with the concerts, and coordinating workshops with several of the series' performers over the past several years.
The tradition is alive and well in Southeast Michigan! The Detroit Irish Music Association, formerly the Crotty-Doran Branch of CCE, has enjoyed a nice revival over the past several years.
We were also excited this year to launch a new website to promote our mission and to help people to find us and get involved, and it's safe to say it's been a huge success. Participation and membership are both up significantly, due in part to our increased visibility. You can find us on the web at: Detroit Irish Music
