Through the City Singing Trail - REIC (Bilingual Open Mic Night)

Carry on the exploration of Abair with this session trail through the city’s best traditional singing clubs.

Funded by the Arts Council of Ireland

Abair is a program of traditional singing and storytelling events exploring the oral folk traditions of Ireland. Taken from the Irish word meaning both ‘to say’ and ‘to sing’, the four-day program offers a broad range of intimate, unplugged performances, each highlighting the richness and beauty of the Irish singing and storytelling traditions still preserved and practiced to the present day.

The events will also feature a 'songs from the floor' session, giving audience members a chance to provide a song or story of their own, relevant to the theme of ‘treasures’.
