The Celtic Music Jam was first brought to fruition 12 years ago to memorialize my Irish grandmother. She was a significant guiding light in my life and nurtured a deep love for music in our family as well as her community. Grandma Peggy was an organist, a singer, and a very well-rounded musician. I started the Celtic Music Jam to honor my grandmother after her passing, and she lives on in the music we share and the grand times we experience!– Collette McComb, founder and owner of CM School of Fine Arts
Maggie’s Clan is American Celtic Rock, fusing traditional Celtic instrumentation and folklore with the contagious energy of rock and roll. Created in 2016, this seven-piece, one-of-a-kind powerhouse, have been performing at local and regional pubs, music venues, and festivals in NY from Rockaway, Queens, to the Adirondacks. Maggie will hit you with a wall of sound from driving rhythms, hard rock vocals, bagpipes, fiddle, and mandolin.
The family-friendly event will run from 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm. There is a $15.00 entry fee, and all proceeds will go towards the CM School of Fine Art’s scholarship fund for their high-risk students.
