ITSC has prided itself on its work to preserve and share Jimmy McBride’s amazing legacy of recordings and videos of Inishowen singers and songs, from the 1980s-1990s. But few recordings exist of our monthly singing sessions, the nights in McFeeley’s Bar, Clonmany and the North Pole Bar, Drumfries.
Beginning Friday 10 November thanks to a successful 2023 application to the Arts Council, three of our monthly sessions will be recorded for posterity by award winning film maker Bob Gallagher.
This is a special night for the Singers’ Circle, an opportunity to capture the songs of the regular gang who meet the second Friday of every month, as well as singers who travel when they can to join us in the North Pole Bar, Drumfries, and McFeeley’s Bar, Clonmany.
Two further recording sessions will be held, and we will share those dates with you soon.
With sincere thanks to the Arts Council of Ireland for their continued support for Inishowen Traditional Singers’ Circle projects and events.
