Each year in Inishowen when we gather for the Singing Weekend, something special happens … it can’t be predicted … but it happened in 2016.
The Inishowen Traditional Singers’ Circle would like to thank everyone who took part in the 2016 event – singers, listeners, speakers, musicians, our schools & their teachers, hotel staff, landlords/ladies (landpersons?), bursary students, guests, the back stage crew: Michelle McGonigle, Linda McGonigle, Mary Joe, Gerard with his buses, Otto Schlindwein who was making the documentary, the audiovisual crew, Irish Traditional Music Archive staff, Paul Eliasberg our photographer … and you who travelled to be with us from Cloontagh to New York.
And a sincere thanks to our sponsors: the Arts Council of Ireland; Donegal County Council; Irish World Academy of Music & Dance, University of Limerick; Ceoltoir, Ballyfermot College of Further Education, Dundalk Institute of Technology, and
EVERYONE WHO PAID THE REGISTRATION!
We will gather again, all going well, for the
28th Inishowen International Folk Song & Ballad Seminar
24-27 March 2017
