Fleadh Ceoil Workshop
IMPORTANT NEWS! SCHOOLS TRAD ORCHESTRA GATHERING IN FEBRUARY AT FÉILE NA TÁNA!!
CALLING YOUNG MUSICIANS!!! SIGN UP NOW!
Music Generation Louth's Schools Trad Orchestra Collective was so successful last summer at Fleadh 2018 in Drogheda that we have decided to keep the project alive and have scheduled another workshop for the group next month!
WHEN AND WHERE!
Our workshop coincides with the wonderful Féile Na Tána Traditional Music Festival in Carlingford and takes place on Saturday 2 February, 2-5pm at Bush Post Primary School, Cooley.
It is free of charge and open to all the musicians who participated in our summer rehearsals and performance on the Gig Rig in Drogheda last August. We also welcome new musicians from our partner schools who have been playing strings for one year or longer.
Local musician Zoe Conway is once again working on a special arrangement of tunes for us to play. The plan is that we will schedule two further rehearsals over Easter holidays as well as meeting again in the summer to get the group super ready to perform at Fleadh 2019! More details to follow on that soon.
Féile Na Tána is a highlight event in the world of traditional music with performances and workshops by some of Ireland's finest musicians. We are thrilled to be part of the Festival this year. We are also delighted that the Festival is offering each young musician a festival pass meaning that they can attend all the performances for free; special discounted tickets for accompanying adults/family members (€5) also available. (I have enclosed a Féile Na Tána leaflet so you can read about everything else that is on over the weekend).
We really hope to see all the musicians who participated in Fleadh 2018 back for more and also hope to see lots of new faces too.
To register for the workshop, simply complete the form enclosed and return to your school Principal no later than Friday 25 January 2019. We will be in touch very shortly after that date with the final details.
