Mayo County Council’s Music Recording Assistance Award has shown once again the breadth and the quality of music making in the county. This year the office received 19 applications for the award. The field included a fantastic cross section of genres, and the high standard made the selection very difficult work for the assessment panel. Mayo County Council Arts Office has awarded two Music Recording Assistance Awards, and this year’s recipients are Vickers Vimy, a five-piece Mayo-based folk collective, and Ballyhaunis based rock and electronic band Race the Flux. The €800 award will be used to assist recipients to record their music. The award was established to support the recording of original music by musicians living in the county and recipients receive up to €800 towards the costs of an original music recording. The award is open to all forms of music, and applications are assessed by an independent and impartial panel of music industry professionals.
