Riches of Clare series announced

RICHES OF CLAREThe 2015 ‘Riches of Clare’ free lunchtime concert series will get off to a musical start on May 18th in the County Museum, Ennis.

This Clare Arts Office initiative is hosting fifty six traditional musicians in fourteen concerts, throughout the second half of May, June and July in Ennis.  The concert series features traditional musicians from or based in County Clare with an occasional visitor!

The usual residency in the Clare Museum, Ennis begins during the Fleadh Nua festival and continues each Wednesday afternoon during June and July. There  will also be a special concert this year in Teach  Ceoil, Kilrush to coincide with the Clare Fleadh, and  in Feakle Communtiy Hall as part of the Feakle Festival.

‘As in previous years, we are expecting standing room only in the Museum for the concerts taking place during the Fleadh’ says Mike Butler, who co-ordinates the series on  behalf of the Arts Office.

Musicians performing in this year’s series will include Tim Collins, Josephine Marsh  and Edel Fox.

According to Siobhán Mulcahy, County Arts Officer, “As always, local musicians have been enthusiastic and obliging with their participation in each and every concert.  The series really belongs to the musicians and the audiences”. Admission to all concerts in the series is free of charge, as the concerts are supported by the Arts Office of  Clare County Council and the Arts Council.

More information on the series is available on http://www.richesofclare.com and this year the coordinators are continuing to provide a free text reminder service.  To sign up for these reminders, which will inform you of the musicians playing in that day’s concert, simply text RICHES to 087-4199293.  Updates can also be received online or through the Riches of Clare Facebook page, where some sound and video clips of previous concerts can be viewed.
