The Traditional Singers Club supports and encourages involvement and excellence in Irish and related singing traditions. We do this in part by providing a regular singing session in the Twin Cities for those who are interested in learning, performing, and sharing knowledge on unaccompanied traditional songs, which was seen as an unmet need when the club was founded.
We host a monthly singing session. We also host concerts and workshops by respected traditional singers. Past guests include Maighread Ní Dhomhnaill, Norman Kennedy, Len Graham, Rhiannon Giddens, Áine Meenaghan, and Dáithí Sproule. (see a full list here)
Traditional Singers Club concerts follow a format designed to showcase featured artists while also promoting local participation in traditional singing. Thus, a typical event will include performances by “resident” club singers as well as an impromptu song or two from selected “floor” singers.
