Both Sides of The Lough

Wed 27 November, 8:00pm

The culmination of a joint project with Hawk’s Well Theatre Sligo, this celebratory concert will showcase a wealth of creativity and talent across Leitrim and Sligo in a concert that merges traditional and classical communities in both counties. The concert here in Carrick on Shannon is an intimate iteration of the gala premiere performance of Both Sides of The Lough with string quartet and orchestra that is being held in Sligo on Sunday 17th November.

Featuring a selection of traditional music, this intimate concert will also feature newly commissioned music from prolific composer Michael Rooney who will be joined on The Dock stage by Stephen Doherty, David Doocey, John Joe Kelly and a string quartet led by Niamh Crowley. Building to a magnificent crescendo this concert will also showcase youth traditional music groups from across the Sligo and Leitrim.
