Early November Events: Keeping up with the Irish
CPH Irish Festival

‘Start early, end late’ is the motto of this festival.
Spend an evening (or two) enjoying traditional and modern Irish music at double concerts performed by the likes of legendary singer Tommy Sands and award-winning band Connla.
If you want to make some music of your own, open jam sessions will be held before and after the concerts.
Guests are welcome to bring and play along with any Irish instruments!
And don’t miss the traditional Irish dancing. It’s open to everyone regardless of experience – the more skilful will lend a helping hand! (SK)
