St. Patrick's Eve Irish Cultural CelebrationOther / Amsterdam
16 March 2014, 4.30pm
Celebrate St. Patrick's Day by attending this cultural event featuring musical performances that explore the Irish influence on European music.
Aisling Casey, Cork-born musician and Amsterdam expat for over 16 years, has organised an evening that seeks to put the Dutch capital on the world map of cities celebrating Irish musical heritage.
An essential part of Irish identity, music is one of the nation's greatest exports.
Taking place on St. Patrick's Eve, this first-of-its-kind event in Amsterdam will feature Dutch and Irish musicians collaborating on typically Irish tracks.

In addition to music, there will also be an Irish dance workshop for children and the venue Splendor will literally radiate green when it's illuminated especially for St. Patrick's Day.
