On behalf of the Irish Cultural Society of the Pacific Northwest, welcome to the web site for the Sean-nós NW Festival and the Féile Portland Weekend of Irish Language and Culture!

2018 Sean-nós Northwest Festival instructors confirmed!

We have an amazing lineup of instructors this year -- the workshops and concert should be amazing!

Gaeilge: Orla Nic Thaidhg

Singing: Máirín Uí Chéide

Dance: Jackie O'Riley

Fiddle: Dale Russ

Pipes: Joey Abarta

Accordion: John Whelan

Of course, we will also have offerings from our regular volunteer instructors as well.

As in previous years, we will plan to have a Friday evening social event (yet to be determined). Workshops will run all day Saturday and Sunday, April 14-15, 2018 in the Communications Building at TESC. 

Please consider ICSPNW for your charitable giving!

If you are considering making charitable gifts before the end of the year, we would be honored if you would consider making a donation to ICSPNW. The costs associated with the festival and other educational events during the year are substantial. Any donation -- even a small one -- would be very much appreciated. Thank you for considering us.

Sean-nós Dance Classes in Olympia are returning soon

We're currently on a break, but will return to offering beginner-level sean-nós dance classes in Olympia if there is enough interest. Let us know if you want to join us!
