We have 3 main performing groups:

Innisfall - This is a group of youth singers and instrumentalists who have earned some remarkable achievements. Their members have won national Irish music competitions and competed in world championships, had a CD reach number 5 on the Billboard world music charts, won vocal album of the year from several international radio station awards, and been nominated for Traditional Irish Music Album of the Year. They play a great selection of traditional Irish songs and instrumentals as well as more popular music with a celtic flare.

North Texas Gaelic Youth Chorus - This is a collection of singers that perform traditional Irish songs in the Irish language. There are only a few of these Irish chorus groups in the world and this is the only youth chorus. The music is not the drinking songs you may hear in pubs, but rather beautifull Irish airs, and songs that are mostly sung in the Irish Language of Gaelic. Many of the songs are 200-500 years old. On some songs, the musicians will back the others with instruments such as piano and harp. Their performances with Celtic Woman and Irish Tenors drew rave reviews from the audience.

North Texas Irish Youth Band - This is a collection of instrumentalists that comprise the most advanced and oldest musicians in our program. They play instruments including fiddle, guitar, banjo, mandolin, irish flute, penny whistle, and bodhran (Drums). The music they play is traditional Irish music. Most of it is dance music and they can and accompany Irish dancers.

The School of Irish Music performers were all VERY talented! The music was really beautiful, and fun, and they are terrific performers! Tim Kennedy was very easy to work with and the arrangements went really smoothly. We would definitely recommend these talented young people to others, and we're looking forward to having them back sometime! 5 stars all the way!
