Calling all Inishowen musicians and entertainers! 04.02.21

AS part of the government’s 'Keep Well' campaign, Donegal County Council is seeking to recruit a panel of experienced musicians, singers and entertainers to provide a series of music, song and dance performances for residents of the county’s long stay care homes, over the coming months.
The initiative will allow for an element of entertainment and celebration by residents, at a time when the restrictions are still having a negative impact on their lives.
In consultations with care homes, many of the residents expressed a particular likeness for Irish traditional and country music, so the series will be seeking to respond imaginatively to that preference, as well as catering for other musical tastes and forms of entertainment. The performances will be of the highest professional standards and will be delivered in a warm, informal style to facilitate maximum engagement between artists and audience.

In view of the ongoing and envisaged Covid-19 restrictions and protocols around gatherings of people and social distancing, the programme will be focused on engaging solo artists and small duo and trio ensembles. The entertainment may take place indoors or outdoors, as the ongoing Covid-19 situation dictates.

Performers interested in being considered for inclusion on the panel, can request a copy of the 'Brief to Performers' and an 'Expression of Interest Form' by emailing their request to Donegal County Council Arts Service at traolach@donegalcoco.ie . For more information visit www.donegalcoco.ie .
Completed 'Expression of Interest Forms' must be returned to Donegal County Council Arts Service by 4pm on Wednesday, February 10th.
