Passports: Music of Ireland

The Máirtín de Cógáin Project

The Máirtín de Cógáin Project is led by its eponym, Máirtín de Cógáin, a performer of extraordinary talent. Crowned All-Ireland Storytelling Champion twice over, Máirtín says that telling stories is his highest joy in life. A superb singer, dancer, and bodhrán (Irish drum) player, he has gathered a group of the finest Irish-American musicians around him. Together, this group brings the story of de Cógáin’s native Cork to an appreciative international following.

Máirtín de Cógáin has performed across his native Ireland, all over the U.S., and beyond. An infectious personality, he easily commands the attention of his audience. If you are lucky enough to catch him spinning a few tales, you are in for a treat.


Each program will be an intimate lecture-demonstration and mini-concert, in which the audience will have opportunity to interact with the artists. Having introduced us to their art form, the artists will perform a number of pieces.

6:30pm – Doors open. Casual reception prior to performance.
7:00pm – Performance begins.

This is a casual BYOB event. Feel free to bring refreshments for yourself and your friends.
