About Cór Gaeilge

Cór Gaeilge Texais performs traditional songs in Scottish Gaelic and Irish (Gaidhlig no Gaeilge). Established in 1997, the group regularly appears at festivals in Texas and the surrounding region. The repertoire explores all aspects of life from church to tavern, dandling babies to rousing marches, love songs to work songs, and dances to dirges.
 
In addition to performing, the group also teaches, locally and at festivals, as an important element in maintaining interest in the ancient linguistic and musical heritage of the Gaels.
 
As none are native speakers, the members Cór Gaeilge are constantly honing their individual language and musical skills. Dedicated to learning and sharing songs in Gaelic, the Cór is constantly on the lookout for materials, workshops, and new friends interested in maintaining their heritage.
