More Ambassadors on Board
We're gaining momentum as we countdown to love:live music 2012. There is great excitement about the day with a range of events being planned throughout the country. All the details to be revealed in May....
But, in the meantime, we're delighted to have two new musical ambassadors on board. Take a bow, Linda Buckley and Laoise Kelly.
Linda Buckley, who is currently composer in residence at RTE lyric fm has this to say about her involvement in the plans for 21st June, "love:live music celebrates the rich musical diversity of the Ireland of today - I am honoured to participate in tracing the connecting thread from traditional Irish to classical, through contemporary and electronic trends of the here and now."
According to Irish Harper Laoise Kelly, "Ireland is, and has always been, unique on the musical world map. The harp has been the symbol of Ireland since 1270 so we’ve been known for music for a long time! We are the envy of the rest of the world in how music is such an integral, natural part of our culture. We need to celebrate this uniqueness rather than take it for granted. And encourage the musicians from other countries who always long to visit and collaborate to do just that."
So, we're in full flight with our plans for the big day. What will you be doing to celebrate on 21st June?
