Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann Sudbury Irish Arts Association Inc.

CCE SIAAI concerns itself with the development of an environment conducive to: promoting traditional Irish music and arts in all forms; promoting, in particular, the playing of the harp and uilleann pipes locally; promoting Irish traditional dancing and singing with the traditional music; fostering and promoting the use of the Irish language; creating a closer bond among all lovers of Irish music and culture.

Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann Sudbury Irish Arts Association Inc. (a non-profit, charitable organization) was originally formed on March 17, 1996 under the name Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann Sudbury Branch. Since the begining, we have produced 14 Irish Celtic fairs, and ran a variety of weekly programs, large community shows (e.g. Echoes of Erin) and preformed in countless venues.  We also train local adult singers, dancers and speakers of Irish, and also children to dance, sing, speak Irish, Irish crafts, do plays, and play fiddles and tin whistles.  Our programs are provided on a weekly basis to children, youth and adults.  We also run a week long Irish Summer school.

Northern Lights Festival Boreal

NLFB is a non-profit, charitable music presenter in Northern Ontario. The organization provides valuable exposure and career development opportunities for emerging artists, while also presenting highly acclaimed artists, and keeping the region on the map for acclaimed touring acts. The festival presents a strong component of francophone, Aboriginal, and other multicultural content each year, in line with regional population demographics and the diverse cultural makeup of the Canadian population. The majority of NLFB’s operations surround the annual summer festival, however the organization also presents many other cultural events, concerts etc. throughout the year.

 

The mandate of NLFB is to present music, performing and creative arts through its annual three day music festival and year round activities that support the regional artistic and musical talent in Northern Ontario.

 

The ‘Northern Lights Folk Festival’ was first held in Bell Park in 1972. It was a free one-day music festival on one stage; needless to say it has grown exponentially since. It remains Canada’s longest continually running outdoor music festival, holding its 45th edition in 2016, and taking place on the picturesque shores of Ramsey Lake in Bell Park, in the heart of Sudbury. Over the years, NLFB has grown into a seasoned presenter of Canadian roots and modern music, and a lightning rod for the energy of Northern Ontario’s artistic community. Inventing tradition, fostering innovation, celebrating community, since 1972.
