“A seminal figure in Irish music”

-The Rough Guide to Irish Music

Dáithí Sproule

Scéala an Gheimhridh

Greetings! Just arrived at midwinter’s day here in Minnesota — though that usually doesn’t line up with what the weather’s doing here. I had a very enjoyable tour in Japan with Altan — we’re always so well looked after and it was good to see Chris Stout and Catriona McKay again. The next year brings gigs with Laura MacKenzie, James Kelly, Liz Carroll and Trian, the Center for Irish Music fundraiser, Éigse, in February and my very enjoyable lessons and classes at CIM. I’ve had a great time at the recent classes on Irish Myth and Elizabeth Cronin, and hope to have a class on the songs of Frank Harte in the coming semester. See you in 2019, if not before! Dáithí
