The Hartford Feis 2021 will be held on the grounds of our club on Saturday August 21st. Our feis is the largest fundraiser that our club currently holds. It is also our largest cultural event and is one of the few remaining outdoor feiseanna in the United States. It is a wonderful day of Irish dance and music and if you have never attended one, I highly urge you to join us on August 21st . The dancers are always exciting to watch and you will swell with pride in the beautiful event your club produces. So mark your calendar and come by...oh, and bring a lawn chair!
I simply love to sing and have been doing so professionally for over 30 years. While my first love remains Celtic folk, I have over time, absorbed the music of many of our great troubadours and on any given night with the moon and stars in perfect alignment and the wind just right, you'll hear songs (including originals) from Woody Guthrie to the King of Rock & Roll! Feel free to browse around the site, found out more about what I do and where I've been.
Classes are held on Wednesday evenings (except the fourth Wednesday of the month). Vaccinations required for dancing.
This is a cultural function of the Irish American Home Society and there is no charge. The only requirements are hard-soled shoes and a little stamina. Classes begin at 7 pm.
Please see our Connecticut Irish Set Dancers Facebook page or contact Liz Raymond at (860) 614-9431 for more information.

New Leaf is John Tabb on button accordion, Kira Jewett on fiddle and Jim Bunting on guitar, vocals and bouzouki. Together they play traditional tunes with tight, driving rhythm, interspersed with Jim's unique take on Ireland's song repertoire.
John Tabb is well known throughout southern New England for his box playing and leads weekly sessions at the Irish Cultural Center of Western New England. He has performed with The Healys, The Dustmen and his dad Chris Tabb, and appears on the recording Apples in Winter. Kira Jewett started playing classically when she was just three years old, but fell in love with the music of Ireland in her 20s and studied extensively with the virtuoso fiddler Brian Conway. She is the 2003 All-Ireland fiddle Slow Airs Champion. Singer and rhythm player Jim Bunting is an avid local session player who brings a sensitive touch and driving rhythm to the band.
