Music Generation Celebrates Traditional Music


A delegation of superb young traditional Irish musicians from Music Generation Sligo were among 117 players who took part in the annual ‘Music @ Mount Leinster’ festival,
 hosted by Music Generation Carlow in the village of Borris over the mid-term break, 21 – 23 February. The group, Sáile, was mentored over the three days by renowned concertina player Ernestine Healy, who guided them through rehearsals, learning new skills, collaborating with young musicians from other counties and performing for a packed-out audience at a Grand Finale Concert at The Step House Hotel, Borris. The group was supported to attend by Music Generation Sligo. The festival was supported with funding from the Music Generation National Partnership Project. Images: Barbara Flynn.
