On Friday 24th November at 8pm, Fred Finn CCÉ will celebrate 30 years in existance with a gala celebration concert at the Hawk’s Well Theatre in Sligo. Tickets for this event, which will feature some of the great musicians to have passed through our classes, are available from the Hawk’s Well Box Office, on www.hawkswell.com and on 071-9161518.
A limited number of tickets will also be available from the branch during Saturday morning classes, just ask a member of the committee for details. Adult tickets are priced at €15 and U18s at only €7.50.
The concert will be preceded by a launch event at 7pm at the Hawk’s Well, and which will include the launch of ‘Fred Finn 30 Years’, an excellent book written by one of the founding members of Fred Finn CCÉ, Séamus McCormack. The book will be launched by And Stiúrthóir of Comhaltas Labhrás Ó Murchú. All are welcome and refreshments will be served.
The concert itself will begin at 8pm and will feature, among others:
