LACKAGH COMHALTAS is launching an online All-Ireland Traditional Music Feis for 2021 and are looking for musicians to sign up and take part.
All competitors must perform solo, playing two pieces of music which will be adjudicated by a panel of renowned trad musicians. The Feis is open to all musicians to participate and the age categories are as follows: u10, u12, u14 and u18. The following instruments will be adjudicated: accordion, banjo/mandolin, concertina, fiddle, flute/whistle, and harp.
'Refocus, re-group and re-ignite'
"No doubt we have all really missed the buzz, excitement, enjoyment, and pleasure of the various Fleadhs in 2020," said the organisers, "but we are endeavouring to change that this year with the launch of our online virtual feis. We are hoping to provide a platform for young musicians to refocus, re-group and re-ignite their passion for traditional music with a little bit of competition and craic thrown in along the way."
