Dear Irish Gift Supporters,
After careful and painful consideration, The Irish Gift has determined that due to unfortunate and unforeseen circumstances out of the organization’s control, we must postpone the Ireland Immersion Weekend 2013 to a future date.
Organizers have put in over a year of planning for this highly anticipated weekend and we intend on having this at a date to be announced in the near future.
This was not an easy decision but a necessary one based on the circumstances presented before us. The intention of The Irish Gift is to share our Irish Culture with Middle Tennessee and for the weekend to be both a resounding success and one that continues to lay the groundwork for the future growth of our organization, we could not ensure that this goal would be met based on the situations before us at the current time.
We ask that you keep the faith in The Irish Gift and what we are doing and please show up in 2014 to support us. We have worked so hard this past year to fulfill our vision; we were so near and now we get fight another day.
We sincerely apologize for any inconveniences this may cause and hope to be back up and running very soon with the great event and the announcement of a new date. Information regarding ticket refunds is forthcoming very soon.
Thank you for your support.

We have a very exciting weekend planned full of music, dance, Gaelic language instruction, authentic food and drink, as well as lessons on how to play traditional Irish instruments and dance, enjoy Connemara ponies and more. The instructors are masters in their field. There will be an opportunity to have one-on-one instruction in any of the Old Traditions you choose. A concert will be presented under the stars on Saturday night that you won't want to miss.
The Mockingbird Sings is a musical that traces the roots of country music through Scottish, Irish, Delta Blues and Gospel influences will kick off the weekend, along with a tasting of some of the best Irish and Scotch whiskeys. Guests will enjoy a buffet to include homemade Irish brown and soda bread, fresh salmon and other authentic Irish culinary delights. “We’re so excited about this new partnership with The Irish Gift because it affords an enhanced opportunity to bring the rich heritage of Ireland to our eyes, ears and hearts as a bridge between the old world and the new” says Sharon Cort, Director of The Mockingbird Sings.
Please plan to join us for our unique and truly special Ireland Immersion Weekend. It is going to be an amazing event, and you can help us preserve and promote the oldest and purest forms of the Irish culture. Go raibh mile maith agaibh!!
The Irish Gift consists of a group of volunteer artists and professionals.
