Traditional Irish Music
Trad for Trócaire week will be starting shortly ( 27th September - 4th October ) and is a very worthy cause. Over the last number of years Trócaire has been working on this initiative and it has really captured the imagination of the country and has tapped into traditional music in particular.
Sessions are a part of the musical fabric of Ireland, USA, UK and further afield and offer a great opportunity to raise much needed funds. In many instances these sessions are being provided to the public at no cost with musicians giving freely of their time. Thousands of sessions exist across the globe and the simple idea of putting out a hat and collecting for a good cause has now been shown to work. Take it one step further and make it a Trad For Trócaire Session.
For ideas on how to raise some money from bucket shaking, to sponsorship to spot prizes visit the Trócaire website where they have some handy tips as well as an interactive map with all the sessions listed. www.trocaire.org/trad
