The programme for this year’s festival will be online at the end of this week with live events that reflect the current COVID restrictions and guidelines. The aim is to bring live music, words and art to our community and schools. This year, all tickets will have to be booked online for all events and there will be limited capacity at these concerts as per the current restrictions.
Performers this year include singers, traditional music, classical music, folk and contemporary performers. We hope to give our local musicians like Knoeline Keane, Tríona Eames, Dave Gradwell and Laura Browne opportunities for live performances at pop up outdoor venues. We are also collaborating with Ceol an tSamhraidh to bring larger capacity events and free music to our loyal audiences.
Literary guests include Nuala O’Connor, Louise Kennedy, Berni Crawford, David Butler and Madeline Darcy as well as local readers at the Only for This Exhibition with commissioned original work from writers Donal Ryan, James Harpur, Geraldine Mills, Stephen James Smith and Geraldine Mitchell.
The Visual Arts programme at Shorelines 2021 includes our first Shorelines Windows Exhibition where a stroll through the streets becomes a stroll through an outdoor art gallery. Our Windows Arts Trail will include works from Josephine Geaney, Emma Barone, Abby Dillon, Caroline Evans, Mary Finn, Julie Potter, Claire Finlay, Michelle Ryan and Jenny Wood-Sullivan who is also curator of this visual treat. More details on other exhibitions and events next week!
