As you may know, I am a biology professor at small liberal arts college in northern New Jersey. We are highlighting various cultures throughout the year through movies, internet, live music and live poetry. Nov. 1 begins Irish culture week.

Would any of Daltai be interested in collaborating on an event that would be run on the evening of 11/3 or 11/4? I am especially in need of poets, poetry readers and musicians. I know it is a lot to ask but if you find the idea exciting, let me know.

I will definitely be directing folks to this site at any rate!

GRMA,

Jim

Try getting in touch with James Norton (jamusn at scoilgaeilge dot org). He recently published a book of Irish poetry and is NY based.

Thanks Aonghus, that is a good idea. It is similar to what other groups have done.
One of our poets in residence in the English department got his fellow Philippino poets to come on a Thursday night. They were fantastic! This Thursday, other folks are doing Haiku. I believe they will be amateurs.

Jim, a chara,

Will you be doing something on the language?
What about poetry & music in the Irish language?
Is it in the evening?

Rath

Hi Rath,


Nice to hear from you! Yes, ideally, I would like to have a program of an hour to an hour and a half on Irish language poetry and music for students and staff that don’t have any familiarity with Irish language culture. It would be in the evening. I have the room from 6 pm on 11/3 and at 10 pm on 11/4 (they are college kids, that is when they go out on Thursday) and could do either or both. Thanks for asking!

To anyone interested, it doesn't have to start at 6 pm on 11/3.

Jim, a chara,
I'd like to help out if I can on 11/3.
I can read some poetry as Gaeilge with English translations and maybe do a song or two as Gaeilge. I'll see if I can bring a few others with me. Contact me (click on my User name at left) and we'll discuss.
Rath

A Dhuine Uaisle,

We will have a night of Irish Language Poetry and Songs at Bloomfield College on 11/3/04 at 8 pm in the Art Gallery in Westminster Hall located at the corner of Freemont and Franklin Streets in Bloomfield, New Jersey.

I am deeply grateful to Rath and the other Daltaí who have committed to coming to recite and sing. And I am grateful to James Naughton, an file and author of “An File ar Buile,” who will recite from his work. A “go raibh maith agat” goes out to Aonghus for his helpful suggestions. Jonas, we will see you there? ;-)
