Love : Live Music Day - 21st June 2013

Love:Live Music – our name for Ireland’s National Music Day on tomorrow, 21st of June.  According to the Love: Live Music website "is will be a glorious and all-inclusive celebration of live music-making in Ireland embracing all forms of music, without exception.  Whether you’re into rock and pop, choral music, rhythm and blues, freestyle jazz or operatic arias, then this is for you!  All of the events taking place around the country during the day and night will be FREE and open to everyone. 

Ireland’s musical heritage is key to our national identity; it gives a sense of our history and also of our place within the world today. Traditional music has perhaps been the most influential style that we’ve exported, but we’re not just rooted in the past.  Love:Live Music gives performers the opportunity to shine a spotlight on ‘new Irish music’ by showcasing contemporary styles, especially when collaborating with other musicians from different cultures and disciplines.  The diversity of the performances illustrates the breadth of creativity across all corners of the country – not just by professional musicians, but by keen amateurs as well."

There will be lots of events taking place around the country, both traditional and non traditional. Check their website for more details.

There will be a lot of traditional Irish music events on.  The scenic fishing village of Cleggan in western Connemara will enjoy another rousing weekend of Irish traditional music, song and dance on June 21st to 23rd 2013, (Sunday session to be confirmed) as the extended family that is Dusty Banjos returns for their fifth annual Traditional Music Weekend.

Musicians from Galway, Clifden and further afield will be on hand to play a series of sessions in local pubs. This year we hope to see even more musicians, singers and dancers taking part in the sessions, including locals and visitors of all ages!

The town of Ennis in Clare will have a weekend of music and Lúnasa will also be hosting a Guinness World Record attempt for the largest tin whistle ensemble in Ireland this June. Check out this blog
