Some of the world's best traditional Irish musicians, singers, dancers and crafts artists are at the 17th annual Catskills Irish Arts Week, taking place in East Durham, NY on July 10-16, 2011.

It's an amazing gathering of over 70 top artists who teach and perform Irish music and dance at the highest level throughout the week, according to artistic director Paul Keating. 

The Irish Arts Week culminates in the Andy McGann Traditional Irish Music Festival on Saturday, July 16 throughout the day, named for the great Sligo-style fiddler from the Bronx.
