Could you please update our Sligo Live dates October 21st - 26th 2015. We have Altan, Ensemble Ériu, Sean McElwain's music from Sliabh Beagh  'My Dear Dark Mountain and the Sky Over It, with a host of musicians from Monaghan/Fermanagh border. The Whileaways, as guests of Rufus Wainwright. Michael Rooney will perform some of his own pieces with an orchestra of the top young traditional and classical players from Sligo Acadamy of Music and Fred Finn CCE. en titledWhen Peace Comes Dropping Slow, reflecting that  some of the pieces were first performed during the historic visit of Prince Charles and the Duchess to Sligo, as  part of the ongoing peace process.  The Fiddler of Dooney, perhaps the most prestigious fiddle competition outside the Fleadh, carries on the Yeats theme in  the 150th anniversary of his birth. The competition was started by the Sligo traditional music community in 1965 to commemorate 100 years since Yeats's birth. As always the town will be coming down with sessions and music of all sorts. 

Keep up the good work!
