THE GALWAY University Hospitals Arts Trust is holding a gala evening of music and song in the Town Hall Theatre on Wednesday September 30 at 8pm, featuring Luka Bloom, John Faulkner, Mary Bergin, and The Amazing Apples.
The event opens with a performance by the Galway University Hospital Choral Society, lead by Seamus Leonard. Flute player Christy Barry, who recently received a Lifetime Achievement Award for his contribution to music at the Doolin Folk Festival, and his band - Conor McCarthy, James Devitt, and John Faulkner. Singer-songwriter Luka Bloom; acclaimed fiddle player Mick Conneely and Mary Bergin, one of Ireland’s greatest tin whistle players; and indie-folk band The Amazing Apples will also perform.
“The arts trust believes access to the arts promotes well-being and enhances the hospital environment for patients, their families and staff,” said Margaret Flannery, director of GUHAT. “We will provide information booklets on the night to demonstrate some of the current projects.”
