Céilí in the Kitchen

  • Performance

Céilí in the Kitchen

A céilí in the kitchen can happen anywhere in the world and embrace all cultures and traditions. You and your family at home and abroad are inviting to get ready to host a Céilí on Saturday 12th June.

Céilí Club 

Everything you need to have your own Céilí in the Kitchen.

From Monday 17th May to Saturday 12th June children across Ireland will be invited to join Céilí Club where the 4 club leaders will host live and interactive workshops on Zoom (Monday – Thursday) in storytelling, song, dance, lilting, percussion and more.

Our 4 leaders are: Cathy Jordan, Peter Crann, Clare Murphy & Edwina Guckian. 

A ceilí in the kitchen can also happen anywhere in the world and embrace all cultures and traditions. Connecting with established youth groups and schools via connections with the diaspora network, our diaspora are invited to take part in this set programme across the 16 workshops leading up to Cruinniú na nÓg. These groups will then have their own Ceilí in the Kitchen on June 12th involving gathering traditions and customs from their own culture and embracing the Irish ones that have influenced their culture.

Folk Gatherers 

Like the children in the 1930’s who gathered the folk stories for the Dúchas archives that are so valuable today, children and young people are invited become 21st Century Folk  Gatherers. To support an interactive and collaborative approach, Edwina Guckian will curate daily content across the across the 26 days for  social media platforms, that will feature videos from Irish Traditional Music Archives, Áirc Damhsa Culture Club, Siamsa Tíre National Folk Theatre. New submissions can be made through audio, text, photographs from youth groups in Ireland and abroad via the website.

Meitheal – Collaborative Videos

A collaboration video featuring the workshop leaders, special guests and children from Ireland and those participating in the Céilí Club workshops from outside Ireland will be gathered together and released in the lead up to Cruinniú na nÓg.
