May 2018: Breanndán Ó Beaglaoich
24 May 2018
Breanndán facilitated two workshops during the tour – one accordion workshop with five young members of the Danescastle Music Group at the National Opera House, and one traditional singing workshop with thirteen participants - staff, patients, patients’ families and community members at MISA (Mercer’s Institute for Successful Ageing).
"Once again another successful Music Network workshop and concert" Áine Kennedy, Danescastle Music Group
"The bringing together for an older age cohort to learn songs and Irish traditional singing, this was great for social engagement and their cognition, learning new songs. They really enjoyed the workshop and loved the concert that night and meeting the musicians. The participants loved this experience, this was an opportunity for them to engage with music in a positive way and with a music legend, it brought joy/happiness to them and our healthcare environment." Roisin Nevin, MISA
