Further John Carty Residency Dates Announced.
In mid 2019, Trad Ireland/Traid Éireann announced that award-winning fiddle and banjo player John Carty had been selected as Trad Artist in Residence for County Sligo. The year-long residency began in July last year, and continues into 2020, focusing on creative development, while also including a strong community-engagement strand. A working space has been provided in Hawk’s Well Theatre throughout the residency, and a number of outreach components will see John share his wealth of knowledge with a variety of groups.
With the first date of the year having taken place on Sat 11 January, John will be in residence at the Hawk's Well Theatre on the following dates:
Sat 8 February
Sat 14 March
Sat 11 April
The workshops run from 2 - 5pm, and those interested in booking a half hour clinic with John to play, listen or talk about things relating to Sligo tradition, can get in touch with him by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The residency is made possible by funding from the Arts Council’s Special Projects Award and support from Hawk’s Well Theatre.
