Film Screening: Song of Granite
Enigmatic and complex, Joe Heaney was one of the greats of traditional Irish singing (sean nós). Shaped by the myths, fables, and songs of his upbringing in the west of Ireland, his emergence as a gifted artist came at a personal cost. Featuring performances from Colm Seoighe, Macdara Ó Fátharta, Jaren Cerf, Lisa O'Neill, Damien Dempsey, and sean nós singers Mícheál Ó Chonfhaola and Pól Ó Ceannabháin, and beautiful black and white cinematography, Song of Granite is a distinct portrait of Heaney’s life and a marvelous exploration of music and song.

Spoken Word in Gaeilge (Workshop)
Poet Ciara Ní É will give an introduction to spoken word poetry in the Irish language, and how she came to found REIC, a bilingual spoken word event. This interactive workshop will also invite participants to work on and share their own poems. Suitable for all levels.

Singing in Gaeilge (Workshop)
Peadar Ó hÍcí will give a workshop on singing selected songs in the Irish language. Peadar is a former school teacher from Dublin city and is currently performing full time with the New York-based Basket House Band. As a fluent Irish speaker, Peadar founded an Irish language class in Rocky Sullivan’s in 2010 which has gone on to become a great success.

A History of Irish Song Through Media (Workshop)
Learn about the history of the Irish Song’s evolution through a curated screening and discussion of popular Irish Language music videos throughout the ages with instructor Siobhan Kavanagh.

Drámaíocht na Gaeilge/Irish-language Drama and Fun with Proverbs (Workshop)
Work with instructor Frances Mulraney to craft a 3-minute scene based on an Irish proverb to present to the rest of the Irish Language Day attendees. Writing, acting, and Irish-language beginners all welcome. The first session will involve the introduction of the proverb and development of dialogue around it. The second session will see the same group return to put together the scene to present at the end of the day. The instructor will also give a brief rundown of popular Irish language plays, playwrights, and theater groups.

Story in a Hat: Creative Writing in Gaeilge (Workshop)
