An enriching evening of dancing, singing and music-making in the Irish tradition, known as a “Rambling House,” is returning to the Portland community after a two-year hiatus. On October 29, 2022 from 4pm to 10pm, the Waverly United Church of Christ at 3300 SE Woodward Street in Portland will be the location of an half day of Irish cultural events including singing circles, music sessions, dance/music workshops, and a potluck supper, culminating in an old-fashioned dance party with live traditional Irish music called a Céilí Mór. This event is open to the community and to all ages and experience levels. Fancy dress encouraged!
This event is sponsored by the Mícheál Ó Domhnaill Branch of Oregon, a local branch of Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, whose aim is to promote traditional Irish music, dance and culture.
The event will commence with concurrent programming including a guided slow session for instrumental beginners, a tune learning workshop for musicians, a set and céilí dance workshop, and a guided singing circle. For newcomers, there will be a brief lesson at the beginning of the Céilí Mór. All dances will be called, which means the moves will be explained and demonstrated, then a walk through before they are danced to live music. Céilí dances are group dances often danced at parties and social events. Set dances are similar to square dances, danced in groups of 8 dancers. These are not Riverdance or high stepping competitive dances, but a dance you can enjoy from youth to old age. Check the organization’s website at www.cceoregon.org/events/ramblinghouse for a detailed schedule.
The event will be on Saturday, October 29 starting at 4pm through 10pm. There is an open donation at the door as this event is both a quarterly open house as well as a fundraising endeavour to support our ongoing cultural programming. For more information contact email@example.com.
