Online Family Traditional Singing Session

May 23 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Free

The Arts & Library Services of Tipperary County Council are pleased to announce a four week programme of online Zoom Sessions during May and June as part of the 2020 Tipperary Bealtaine Programme in collaboration with artists and long time Tipperary Bealtaine Collaborators Aileen Lambert and Michael Fortune

While this is a Tipperary based project with key performers from across the county, we invite singers and listeners from all
over Ireland and indeed the globe who would like to take part. As the title suggests with the advent of new technology
“Its not a long way to Tipperary” and you can participate in events from the comfort of your own home anywhere in Tipperary or beyond.

We have four gorgeous events for you, all free and the first one comes in the form of a multi-generational traditional singing session.
This family focused traditional singing session invites young singers along with their families to come to this online event and simply sing and listen.
This is an ideal space for grandparents to sing for their grandchildren or vice versa. We are lucky to be joined by Tipperary singer Deirdre Scanlan, a primary school teacher and a leading figure in the teaching of traditional song and music in Co. Tipperary. Lead artist Aileen and her daughters Nellie, Eppie and Nan will also share some child friendly songs on the day.

The maximum number of people able to attend each event is 25 so you need to book your place ASAP by emailing Aileen and Michael
at folklore.ie@gmail.com. They in turn will send you a password and all you need to do is login to Zoom at the scheduled time, enter the
Meeting ID and password and you are in.
