Wilde Irish Women!


A reprise of their memorable "1916 Rising Commemoration Concert"—an encore performance in song, narrative and video.

The 1916 Easter Rising was the most important event in Irish 20th century history. An armed conflict that ended in tragedy, it was the spark for Ireland's eventual independence from Britain.

Through music, song, image, and story, we commemorate the anniversary of the Rising. Come hear these tales of past glories and failed rebellions as they resonate with the politics, poetry, and music of the times.

Relive Patrick Pearse's delivering the Proclamation of the Irish Republic from the steps of the General Post Office, a speech that inspired a nation—and ended in death and destruction and the execution of the leaders of the Rising—but not its dream.

Founded by Rosemary Caine of Ardee, Co. Louth, Ireland, Wilde Irish Women is a collaborative performance group based in Western Massachusetts. The ensemble comprises musicians, actors and singers who have been together since the early 2000's. Its mission is to illuminate through original music and story the lives of Irish geniuses of literature and legend—saints and sinners included!
