BIAC Director, Laura Byrne
The third annual Baltimore Irish Trad Fest will be held on May 2-4 and again we'll be bringing some stellar musicians from around the U.S. and Ireland, to teach workshops, perform and lead sessions. There will be a Ceili on Sunday with music by the Old Bay Ceili Band and this year's faculty concert will take place at the Creative Alliance.
Created and led by Baltimore resident musician Laura Byrne, Baltimore Irish Arts Center was founded in 2001. Our purpose is to ensure the longevity of Baltimore's vibrant traditional Irish music scene through promotion, accessibility and education. Small group classes are held intermittently throughout the year and we also host the annual Baltimore Irish Trad Festival which was started in 2012.
