A Celebration of Music & Spoken Word at the Pearse Museum
Friday 16th August 2016, 6.30pm & 7.30pm
Part of Culture Night 2016

13th September 2016, Dublin: On Friday 16th September, venues across Ireland will come alive with the sights and sounds of music, art and culture for Culture Night 2016. Music Generation South Dublin is delighted to be joining Tallaght Community Arts and the OPW/Pearse Museum in presenting a night celebrating music and spoken word at the Pearse Museum, St Enda¡¯s Park Rathfarnham. This free event will include a bodhr¨¢n workshop, outdoor traditional concert and performance by Adam Lynham Clarke as William Pearse.

Culture Night at the Pearse Museum aims to commemorate 1916 and the spirit of Patrick Pearse¡¯s school that defied tradition through music and spoken word.
Visitors on the night will be able to discover their hidden talent with a bodhr¨¢n workshop hosted by world recorder holder, Robbie Walsh from The Bodhr¨¢n Buzz in the school¡¯s Halla M¨®r. This 45 minute workshop will then be followed by a public concert where workshop participants will have the chance to play alongside some of Ireland¡¯s most exceptional traditional musicians.

Tallaght Community Arts music group will play a composition from their recent production AERIDHEACHT which performed at the museum in July.

Afterwards, come take a walk in the Art Gallery and learn more about William Pearse, Patrick’s brother who fought beside him in 1916 and who was a renowned sculptor and artist.

Then later treat yourself to an outdoor traditional music concert in the Courtyard by members of Music Generation South Dublin¡¯s Trad Group and Blessington Trad Group with a cup of coffee and a treat!

All activities are family-friendly and completely free in this setting unique to South Dublin County.

Please note numbers are limited for workshop and will be issued on a first come, first served basis. For more information, or to book email:
