San Diego State University School of Music and Dance presents Music of Ireland by The Gallowglass Collective, part of SDSU's World Music Series Spring 2018
Named for the Scottish Norse-Gaelic warrior clans that settled in Ireland, The Gallowglass Collective presents Irish traditional music and dance. Pete Polansky plays fiddle, mandolin and Irish tenor banjo, Ben Jaber performs on uilleann pipes, wooden flute, and tin whistle, and Michael Prine Jr. performs foot percussion and Irish sean-nós (old style) step dance.
The World Music program in the School of Music and Dance has a long and rich history at SDSU. With the increasing importance of cultural awareness and understanding, the world music ensembles offer students a meaningful musical opportunity to engage in the artistic, social, and historical contexts of contemporary, non-western cultures. Children, 17 and under, are free with ticket distribution at the box office while supply lasts.
