MINDEN, Nev. — The Young Irelanders perform Friday, April 7 at the CVIC Hall in Minden as part of the 2016-17 Season of the Carson Valley Arts Council Concert Series.

The sound the band creates is best described as eclectic, where traditional Irish music, Celtic music, folk music, world music, jazz, country and popular music all come together to give rise to a very unique and multi-faceted sound.

Each year the Irish Cultural Academy brings together some of its finest performers of Irish traditional music, song and dance as part of one sensational group known as The Young Irelanders. These performers have Irish traditional music, song and dance running through their veins. Although still in their 20’s and 30’s, these performers are unique amongst their peers in Ireland. They are world and Irish national champions in their disciplines while some also hold Masters Degrees in Music.
