Sliabh Luachra Music Trail

Sliabh Luachra Series Episode 3 March 20th 8pm

On Saturday 20th of March at 8pm we will bring you the third instalment in the new video series celebrating Sliabh Luachra music. It’s made thanks to funding from Cork, Kerry and Limerick County Councils with support from the Arts Council and Creative Ireland.

In this one we launch a new album by Maura O’Connor, a brilliant young musician from Abbeyfeale. We’ll also talk to the people behind the rushymountain.com and we take a look at an album of Sliabh Luachra music from Michael Sheehy that came out in 2016. There’ll be young musicians, some bits from episode one and two and a preview of the Maurice O’Keeffe Festival. It’s going to be great.

The Sliabh Luachra Music Trail works with local Arts organisations to programme concerts, sessions, talks, workshops and master classes.
