Events In The Church – July 2016
For eight weekends, the first of which was two weeks ago (on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays), we are happy to welcome Cormac Begley and his team from Tunes In The Church. Having run for many years at St. Nicholas’ Church in Galway city, we are excited to see the possibilities that may unfold over the next few months. Tunes In The Church is a series of educational and fun traditional music concerts featuring some of the finest traditional musicians in the country. As well as a main set from a different musician each night, the evening is also interactive offering a tour of the church as well as an opportunity for the audience to ask musicians questions about the music and their instruments. A fantastic opportunity to enjoy high quality music or introduce it to visiting friends and family.
