Next Sunday, June 24th Tullyarvan Mill will be rocking to the sounds of the best of Inishowen talent – all tutors and friends of Simply Music.
The concert starts at 8pm, and features none other than the Henry Girls, local band Palomino, and singer/songwriters Longfellow and Louise Moore. Admission is €8, €20 per family.
Eleanor Lamb, back in her role as manager of Simply Music after an absence of 3 years, is really looking forward to a great night.
Speaking yesterday she said: “All of these acts feature Simply Music tutors, so in a sense it’s turning the tables and giving our pupils the opportunity to listen to their tutors”.
Simply Music is also hosting the internationally acclaimed Blazing Bows in a community workshop as part of the North Atlantic Fiddle Convention, on Wed 27th June at 1pm. Admission to this event is free, and “it will be a wonderful opportunity for our pupils, their families and the wider community to listen to these wonderful musicians in an informal setting, chat, find out their approach to music, and how they learnt and got involved in the first place”, says Eleanor.
Other Simply Music events during the summer include a School of Rock from August 13th – 16th and ‘A Rainbow of Sound’ - a children’s Art and Music summer scheme to take place from July 17th – 20th, so it’s a busy summer ahead for all Inishowen music enthusiasts!
