exterior of the CMA building

May the road rise up to meet you . . . and bring you to MIX at CMA’s celebration of the art, music and spirit of Celtic culture.

The Cleveland Museum of Art presents MIX: Celtic on Friday, March 6, from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m.

MIX at CMA’s celebration of Celtic culture features classic Celtic music played by the Cleveland band “The Portersharks.” Bill Chambers, guitar and vocals, Francis Quinn, fiddle, Patrick Custy, Irish Flute and vocals and Brendan Carr, percussion, have dazzled audiences at previous shows including: a private event for the Taoiseach (Prime Minister) of Ireland, Mr. Enda Kenny, countless festival appearances and a standing monthly performance at local Irish pub and restaurant, The Harp, the first Saturday of every month.

Attendees can also enjoy traditional Celtic and original poetry performed by poet Ray McNiece, music from the Strings of Credere duo featuring Wendy Barlow on Irish harp and Bob Bellamy on hammer dulcimer and a presentation by the Irish American Archives Society about their new bronze sculpture honoring the world featherweight boxing champion Johnny Kilbane, an Irish American and Cleveland native.

This month, MIX at CMA will also host a beer tasting from Great Lakes Brewing Company, featuring their seasonal favorite, Conway’s Irish Ale. A presentation about Conway’s Irish Ale will take place at 6:45 p.m. and 7:45 p.m. in the atrium.

*6 oz. tasting of Conway’s Irish Ale is available for $3.

Attendees can redeem their MIX ticket toward the price of a membership. CMA members receive free or discounted admission to most MIX events and all special exhibitions.

MIX: Celtic is part of the Cleveland Museum of Art’s MIX at CMA series. On the first Friday of each month, MIX highlights a different aspect of the museum and its collection. Art, music, cocktails; something different every month. MIX is an 18 and over event.
