IROCKS COMPETITION winners Rofi James and Galway trad-rock band Cúla Búla headline the Corrib Live charity music event in the Commercial Boat Club, Woodquay, on Friday February 12.
The night, which will also feature buskers, DJs, and finger food, is being organised and run by Sound Production students from the Vocational Training Opportunities Scheme, Galway. Last year’s concert raised almost €2,500 for charity, and the students hope to surpass that total this year.
All proceeds go to COPE Galway Waterside House and the Access Music Project. COPE Galway Waterside House is the only 24 hour accessible refuge in the Western region, providing safe accommodation, information support, and court accompaniment to women and their children experiencing domestic violence. Access Music Project is a local course based around music performance and theory, providing an opportunity for musicians in the city to further their knowledge and abilities.
Tickets are €5 from [email protected], Shop Street; COPE Galway, St Augustine Street; Sound Production Students at VTOS, Merchants Square; or through [email protected]. See www.facebook.com/corriblive
