March 15, 2014: Irish Music and Dancing featuring Daoine
Daoine (pronounce “DEEna”) is the Irish word for “people”. The band Daoine is a group of musicians that love to get together and play great Irish music and to share it with our listeners – from dance music like jigs, reels and hornpipes, to hauntingly beautiful airs and songs. Irish traditional music that, while played for centuries in Ireland and America, continues to inspire and continues to find a new voice with each generation. Our music has a fire and energy to it, while striving to stay true to its roots. Our instruments include fiddle, uilleann (Irish) pipes, bodhran, whistle, guitar and banjo. Grant funding provided by the Middlesex County Cultural and Heritage Commission, Middlesex County Board of Chosen Freeholders and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.

October 24, 2009:  Celtic band Blackwater playing and singing traditional and modern Celtic music. The opening singers, a dozen girls from Highland Park High School who form the ensemble Amandala, also charmed the audience with their amazing voices. Thanks, everyone involved in producing the concert and to those who came out and supported WIMNI (in spite of torrential rain)!

2006: Blackwater played to a full house in 2006 as part of Who Is My Neighbor’s Global Heart concert series. Rooted in Irish and British traditions, the three men and two women perform songs that range from rollicking and thunderous to winsome and poignant. With traditional and modern instruments they make music that is high-spirited or reflective, with plenty of humor in the mix.
