One of our most enjoyable and popular events at the Singing Weekend, and occasionally during the year are Song Tours.
At the annual festival, local singer Colm Toland leads a lively bunch to local townlands associated with local songs, singers, and local history. To date, we have visited Urris, the Isle of Doagh and …
ITSC has also enjoyed a day tour following the journey of a cow and its owner based on the song ‘The Mincer’. This trip took us to five locations where songs and music were played at each spot along the way. A memorable day for all who followed the trail.
ITSC has ventured further afield in recent years to share and showcase the rich song tradition of the Peninsula. Audiences in Berlin and at Universities across the island of Ireland have been treated to live performances from ITSC singers and an audio-visual presentation on songs and singers from Inishowen.
ITSC Presentations and Lectures
ITSC members regularly present talks and presentations on singers and songs from the Inishowen Peninsula and on the digital exhibition ‘The Inishowen Song Project’ hosted by the Irish Traditional Music Archive. These feature at the Inishowen Singing Weekend and at events organised at other festivals and conferences.

Other Events of Interest
As well as ITSC events, there are numerous local, national and international events which feature singers and songs which we know will be of interest to ITSC friends. We hope to share news of these events, especially those of local, Donegal and Ulster interest, and associated with friends and supporters of the Inishowen Traditional Singers’ Circle.
