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 …
We have also enjoyed a day tour following the journey of a cow and its owner based on the local Inishowen song ‘The Mincer’. This trip took us to five locations around Inishowen 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.
