Music Marathon in Sliabh Beagh.

The Blackwater Valley School of Traditional Music is growing from strength to strength and numbers attending are increasing rapidly. In order to help fund the school fund-raising took place in Sliabh Beagh Hotel on Sunday, March 28th. This was fund-raising with a difference as the public was provided with top class entertainment for four hours and it was provided by musicians of all ages and with a huge variety of instruments. This was a sponsored music marathon and the public were extremely generous. To witness and experience the music played by these members of the School was proof that the talents of so many are being developed and that the future of our traditional music is in safe hands - thanks to Marina and her helpers.
