Wolf & Clover has an opportunity to perform in Ireland this summer, but we have to get there first.
In order to accept the performance offers we have, we'll need to purchase our own plane tickets and pay for transportation to County Donegal, where we will perform and attend language and culture classes at Oideas Gael, a school founded in 1984 to promote and teach the Irish language and cultivate Irish culture. Oideas Gael is situated in the Gaeltacht, an area of special designation in the Irish Republic where Irish is the first language of those who live there. The school will be "home base" for our time in Ireland this summer. One of the concerts we have booked will be at the school, where we will perform for the local community, students, and teachers there.
If you have attended one of our concerts, listened to our music online, or popped our CD into your car while driving, please consider supporting us on this adventure. We plan to use your generous donations to pay for airfare, travel expenses, tuition, and housing. Though Oideas Gael is in a rural part of Ireland, some of the most talented traditional musicians in the country live there, and we will be able to work and play with them. Our goal is to perform, learn, and start building our 3rd album.
Go raibh míle maith agaibh!
