Concert of Traditional Music at DkIT

The DkIT Traditional Music Ensemble returns for an evening of music and song inspired by the traditions along the border on Wednesday 29 November at 7pm in the MacAnna Theatre, Dundalk Institute of Technology. 

Primarily featuring students from the BA (Hons) Applied Music degree programme but including students from across the Institute, the ensemble has developed an international reputation in recent years with performances in North and South America, Scotland and most recently Norway earlier this year.    As always, the repertoire for the concert is inspired by the region with reference to music and song from Louth, Monaghan, Armagh, Fermanagh and Down. Old favourites are combined with new compositions from  contemporary Irish traditional musicians and reinterpreted to present a fresh sound.    Admission is free but seating is limited and, with capacity crowds over the past number of years, booking is advisable. Email music@dkit.ie or telephone 0429370280 to reserve your seat.
