THE 2015 St Patrick’s Day Parade will showcase the wealth of talented and imaginative bands, musicians, and community music groups, at work in the city.
A Facebook group, Galway Patricks Parade Musician, is being set up specifically to organise ‘travelling troubadours’ in the parade. Cúla Búa and Rivers & Crows (pictured above ) are already announced on board, while the initiative is also being supported by Citóg, a gig night that promotes Galway and Irish indie bands. The Galway St Patrick’s Day Parade will also showcase Gamelan na Gaillimhe, who play hand-crafted bronze gongs, metallophones, and drums, specially commissioned from Siswo Telu in Central Java.
