Paddy O’Brien National Heritage Fellowship Nomination

Posted in Uncategorized on August 29th, 2010 by turlach – Be the first to comment
The Twin Cities Irish Music & Dance Association is also spearheading
the efforts to nominate Paddy O’ Brien for a traditional arts Heritage
Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts. Through this
program, a number of individuals are recognized each year for their
lifetime achievement in the traditional arts. Previous Irish music
honorees include Mike Rafferty, Liz Carroll, Kevin Burke, and Jack
Coen, among others.

The IMDA is spreading the word and collecting letters from people who
know and have worked with Paddy, spelling out the various reasons that
he deserves national recognition. Anyone who might feel inclined to
write such a letter may send it to:

Paddy O’Brien National Heritage Fellowship Nomination
Irish Music & Dance Association
c/o Jan Casey, IMDA Secretary
400 Macalester Street
Saint Paul MN 55105

The deadline for letters of support is September 25; all letters
submitted will also be collected into a commemorative book for the
“IMDA Honors” event in late October (see the last item above).
