Ceol Kids

Donations are now closed!
Bonus donations for more songs!

Congrats everyone who got their song into the top 30! For those of you who didn't, there's one final hope! Since we were so close to our $12,000 goal to do 30 tunes, we'll extend the donation period up to the night of the show. If we beat $12,000, we'll include songs 26-30 as well. If we get even more than that, maybe we'll throw another one in for fun too! We're up to $12143.00 for the Regent Park School of Music so far, help push us over the edge! And don't forget to get your tickets now for the show on June 2 at The Mod Club - it's going to be a great one!

Have you nominated a song for the Ceol Kids setlist, only to see it fall short by a few bucks? Win a chance to avoid this unfortunate situation by coming to this year's show and buying some raffle tickets. The winner gets to choose a song for our 2018 setlist with no further donation necessary! Last year's winner, Cameron Ross, made the excellent choice of 'This Year' by the Mountain Goats. Get your tickets at the show - 1 for $5, 3 for $10, or 10 for $20
