Emer Barry alongside her long time collaborator Mary McCague are delighted to bring to life this beautiful concert 'Memory Lane'. This concert is a celebration of memories and the power of music to bring them to life - even when they can feel lost. It is also an opportunity to say thank you to carers of people with dementia in recognition of the extraordinary work they do. This event is proudly supported by the Bank of Ireland Begin Together Fund in partnership with Business to Arts.
The venue for 'Memory Lane' is the stunning historical landmark 'Castletown House' (Irelands oldest Palladium Home) and it provides a chance for all attendees to sit back and soak up the atmosphere while enjoying much loved nostalgic music performed by three of Ireland's most celebrated artists: Emer Barry (soprano), Mary McCague (Violin) and Mary O'Donnell (Concert Harp).
The trip down memory lane includes songs and instrumentals that evoke the full range of human emotion - from the nostalgia of 'Danny Boy' to the enchantment of 'Moon River' - and of course there will be the toe-tapping joy of some Irish jigs and reels also!
The concert begins at 7pm and tickets are available from Eventbrite here: admission is free but registration is recommended.
