2nd March: The Silent March

Join traditional musician Emer Mayock to watch silent news reel clips from 1916, the War of Independence and the end of WW1. Be inspired by this archive footage along with music and songs from the period, to create your own score. Note: Bring your own instruments.



The students really enjoyed the workshop, it was a great opportunity for them, thank you. Emer was great with them, lovely to get them out of the classroom and it was a great experience for them.
