Easter Camp – GURTEEN

The Music Generation Sligo Easter Trad Camp was a great success last week. Music filled the theatre and rooms at Ceolaras Coleman from early morning. Over 30 dedicated young musicians worked very hard with tutors Caoimhe Kearins, Chris Maguire (Current All Ireland Accordion Champion), Cian Kearins & Niamh O Sullivan. Along with advice on preparing for the upcoming County Sligo Fleadh, participants learnt life long skills in preparing repertoire & bringing a traditional performance to the stage. The group performed a dynamic programme in Ceolaras Coleman with the tutors on Friday night. Young people played accordion, fiddle, tin whistle, flute, bodhran, guitar, concertina, banjo, harp, trad saxophone as well as singing a selection of traditional pieces. Below are a selection of photos taken by Brian Farrell.
