Inishowen musicians and entertainers!
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
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
firstname.lastname@example.org . For more information visit
Completed 'Expression of Interest Forms' must be
returned to Donegal County Council Arts Service by 4pm
on Wednesday, February 10th.
