One of the inspirations for @SalonConcertChi is @TunesInChurch in Ireland #irishmusic

 

One of the inspirations for the Salon Concerts Chicago series is the very successful Tunes in the Church series in Ireland.. This video illustrates what they are after in presenting the music in this way, a listening room environment.. We endeavor to do the same at the Irish American Heritage Center whether it be in the Fifth Province at the Irish American Heritage Center or in another room such as 109! Watch this space as we review our concerts in advance of our next Concert announcement. Thanks to Paul Groff for sharing this excellent video!
