Holiday Break - No DIMA December 22nd

We will resume at Green Wood January 5th

Season's greetings, DIMA friends! There is no session Thursday, December 22, and we will resume at Green Wood on Thursday, January 5th. Don't forget about our First Wednesday sessions at the Gaelic League Irish American Club of Detroit, too!

You can also close out the year with some of the finest Irish traditional musicians in Michigan at the annual CROSSROADS CEILI show at The Ark.

A merry, happy, and peaceful season to all of you, and best wishes for 2023!

 Weekly Lessons & Sessions

Detroit Irish Music Association CCE meets Thursdays September - May at Green Wood FUMC for a learners' session, Irish traditional music session, and lessons for Irish traditional music.


Location: 1001 Green Rd. Ann Arbor, MI


*NEW!* Sunday Sessions at the League with Detroit Irish Radio

Another opportunity to make music with friends - starting Sunday 10/2 - and to be a part of the Detroit Irish Radio show hosted by Kathleen O'Neill! 

Kathleen O'Neill broadcasts the radio show from the Gaelic League, and is hoping for a couple of people to talk about DIMA/CCE and play some tunes on the radio each week.  After the radio interactions (the show ends at 3pm), the session is welcome to continue until 5pm.

Folks can arrive around 2pm or so and play music from then until about 5pm. The idea is to make this a weekly or bi-weekly event at the League. No need to pre-register- simply show up for the session from 2pm!
