Hello!
I'm Sego - with my son, we are coming this summer 2019 in Ireland (Dublin/ Belfast/ Clones/ Derry). We would to meet other people (children or older) through music.
I explain my project..If you will have any contact, idea: contact me!!
thanks a lot!

the project:
Hello I’m Sego; a french musician. I play the harp and I sing.
We come with my son in North Ireland between 12-17 of July 2019.I’m professional musician and I play with various orchestras or alone in recital.My professional website:http://sego-len.com
It’s our first time in Ireland; and we have Irish roots my son and me!)
I m looking for one structure who can be interested in an musical meeting: to introduce the harp and songs for children/older; it’s just for us: sharing a musical moment.The meetings could take place in recreation center, retirement home, social center, cultural center, in a bar, etc..For my son and me, it's a way to travel by meeting new people, new music through music.We play the harp and the percussions. We sing in several languages: French, English, arabic, Gaelic..
For example: We travelled in February to Palestine to meet a choir of 60 children: our experience is in a internet blog: www.travelmotherandson.jimdofree.com

Hello Sego
Here in Derry there are a lot of good choirs and a great singing tradition.
Two school choirs from Derry just recently won School Choir of the Year 2019.

Hi Sego, while I am not a musician, I have passed your information onto some friends who do play.

If they are available while you are in Ireland, they will be in touch with you.

I hope you have a wonderful trip.

Best wishes, 

Gillian

Hi Segolene,

Your trip sounds like a great adventure! You should contact the Comhaltas Ceoltairi Eireann branches in the areas that you are visiting, they often have weekly sessions where groups of adults and juniors meet to play. These are usually really social occasions and a great opportunity to meet local people and play music and sing.
Here is the link - https://comhaltas.ie/ you can click on the locations tab to find out information of branches in each area.

Sandra.

Hi Sego,

What a lovely trip to make with your son!  Might I offer a suggestion of musical sessions which take place in The House of McDonnell which is a bar situated in Ballycastle on the North Coast of Ireland.  On any Saturday night, the Traditional instruments you will hear include the Fiddle, Melodeon, Harp, Mandolin, Anglo Concertina, Tenor Banjo, Tin Whistle, Bodhran and often the Uilleann Pipes.

If you play an instrument or sing (as you do Sego) then House of McDonnell encourage you to come and share your talents with them in sessions which take place on a Friday night.

However, extra sessions also occur, especially during the summer months, when visiting musicians are in the area. So if passing through at another time, House of McDonnell encourage you to get in touch.

I wish you all the best on your musical adventure this summer!

Alison
