Introducing the Ambassadors…
Aren't musicians great? Especially these ones: Cora Venus Lunny, Seán Mac Erlaine, Francesco Turrisi, Niwel Tsumbu and Julie Feeney. Not only do they create and perform wonderful music, but they've also come on board as 'ambassadors' for love:lve music 2012. Here's what some of them have to say,
"Love:live music is a great opportunity to stand back and enjoy music in all its forms, played by all sorts of people in Ireland today. Music is celebration and it's for everyone and so is love:live music." Seán Mac Erlaine
"Recorded music is widely available and easily accessible to everybody today. For this reason I believe that an event like love:live music is a vital reminder to audiences and musicians that live performance is still the essence of making and enjoying music, for professional, amateurs and audiences alike" Francesco Turrisi.
"I am thrilled to be involved with love:lve music 2012. The quality of music in Ireland is incredible and this event is a fantastic opportunity for musicians from all communities to come together in celebration of the wonderful music of Ireland" Niwel Tsumbu.
We'll be hearing more from our ambassadors between now and June, and they'll have a big say in how the event develops. But for now, a massive thanks to them for pitching in.
