Sunday Ski & Music at the VIC:
Community Ceilidh
Sunday, 13 March 2016

Sunday afternoons are for music and fun in the outdoors at the VIC!

Celebrate St. Patrick's Day at the VIC with Irish music and food on Sunday, 13 March 2016.Join us to celebrate St. Patrick's Day with Irish music and food on Sunday, 13 March 2016, when the Sunday Ski and Music Series continues with a Community Ceilidh in the Great Room at the VIC from 1:00 to 3:00 PM.

A ceilidh (pronounced  (kā' lee) is a traditional Gaelic social gathering, which usually involves playing Gaelic folk music. It originated from Ireland and Scotland, but is now common throughout the Scottish and Irish diasporas.

Originally, a ceilidh was a social gathering of any sort, and did not necessarily involve dancing.  In more recent decades, the dancing portion of the event has usurped the older meanings of the term, though the tradition of guests performing music, song, story-telling, and poetry still persists in some areas.

For our ceilidh, we have invited the Ceilidh Music Session from Saranac Lake to provide traditional Celtic folk music.  We will also be offering traditional Irish fare in the form of corned beef and cabbage, to warm you up after a jaunt on the VIC trails.
