MARCH 2021

MUSIC CITY IRISH FEST 2021 

NASHVILLE, TN – Due to the ongoing pandemic and the many challenges faced at this time, MCIF 2021 will not take place.

Over the last 12 months, The City of Nashville has suffered heartbreaking losses. Amid the aftermath of a Tornado, a global health crisis, and a devastating bombing on Christmas day 2020. MCIF will focus on the future with hopes that this celebration can return once again.

As the community heals we believe it would not be the right time to host our event but we want you to know that in spirit we are together! There will always be a love of music, food, and a celebration of culture that unites us beyond our times of hardship and we hope that in our small ways the celebration of our beautiful heritage continues.   Be well, Be safe,  we can still enjoy the “craic”. 


“May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face; the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again”


ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

The journey of Celtic music and culture to America has long been recognized in the creation of our unique heritage and the birth of the world-famous bluegrass and country music for which Nashville is known. Our roots are undeniably found in the musical wealth of Irish and Scots-Irish music and we are proud to embrace this beautiful inheritance.

Come and be a part of a living history that welcomes all to share in its rich and evolving journey, from the shores of Ireland and Scotland to the buzzing streets of Nashville.
