About CCÉ Leicester Branch

Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann* is a worldwide organisation dedicated to fostering the playing and enjoyment of Irish Traditional Music.

The Leicester Branch regularly plays host to major events in the Irish traditional music calendar. The popular Echoes of Erin concert tour came to Leicester for the fourth year running in February 2014 (for video clips see our YouTube channel) and again in 2020, and in 2012 and 2016 the Branch hosted the All Britain Fleadh. 

In Britain, branches are divided into four regions – London, Midland, Northern and Scottish – all coming under Comhaltas na Breataine.

* The approximate pronunciation is ‘coal-tas kyol-tory air-an’.
