February Breakfast Meeting

Tuesday, February 27 at 8 am 

Fitzpatrick's at 57th and Lex AND on Zoom

Members $20 | Nonmembers $30 | Zoom FREE


For those joining us at Fitzpatrick's, you will enjoy a full Irish breakfast of eggs, Irish bacon, sausage, grilled tomato, black and white pudding along with tea, coffee and juice.

Once again, this will be a hybrid event so those of you can not join in person can get together on Zoom.  Both groups will network separately and then join as one happy hybrid for our guest speaker!


Special Guest Colin Urwin

Folk Singer, Songwriter, Storyteller and Author From the Glens of Antrim

Colin will be joining us in-person for breakfast at Fitzpatrick's followed by a hybrid chat. 

About Colin Urwin:

Colin Urwin is a modern-day Seanchaí. He is a folk-singer, songwriter, storyteller and author. Steeped for a lifetime in the language, folklore and traditions of his beloved Glens of Antrim, Colin has long been exposed to traditional Irish and Scottish music, song and story. He is most inspired by the people and places, the history and legends, and the sheer, rugged romance of the northeast coast of Ireland. From these he conjures up many of his beautiful ballads, magical rhyming monologues and delicately woven tales of wonder. Colin regularly appears at local storytelling and music events for schools, libraries, a wide range of community groups, and at international storytelling festivals and conferences all over the world.

In recent years Colin has worked closely on a variety of exciting artistic community projects with the Armstrong Storytelling Trust led by world-renowned storyteller Liz Weir MBE. For more than two decades he has been the caller and singer in 'Haste to the Wedding' ceilidh band, who are always in great demand all over Ireland and further afield. He is also a founding member of the storytelling group Dalriada Legends.

He serves on the committees of the Glens Storytelling Festival and the Storytellers of Ireland. He is also the Storyteller in Residence for The Waterways Community; a charitable social enterprise creating opportunities for people, schools, businesses and organisations in Northern Ireland.


There will be an opportunity to "network, communicate, reciprocate" as we gather to share our news and be together. 

Zoom link will be sent with RSVP confirmation and again on the morning of the meeting.
