Media - Seeking Sounds of Reconciliation

Press Release
‘No Musical Demarcation’ on 10th August 2012 is a musical celebration of all traditions sharing cultural diversity in our border regions.  This event will kick start Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann at the Liberty Insurance Dome.
The concert is a showcase of many months of meetings, rehearsals and musical combinations as part of Culture Cavan, funded by the International Fund for Ireland.   The energy behind this project is a genuine desire to share tunes and to find new musical combinations and a genuine embracing of our cultural diversity.    The work to date has involved participation and community engagement among people who may have previously been fearful and intimidated by the way music and instruments have been used.  Culture Cavan aims to encourage participation among communities in the border regions through different arts media.   ‘No Musical Demarcation’ is an opportunity to share, enjoy and marvel at the rich tradition of music in our border area.   The evening will be presented by Martin Donohoe and Willie Drennan who have worked since March to bring musicians and music strands together  in a show that will highlight just how much of the music and culture which indeed is common to both sides of the historical divide.  Featured in the line up are marching bands, dancers and soloists.   The line up includes:-
Ø  Moybrone Pipe Band    
Ø  Bailieborough School of Music
Ø  Mullaghboy Accordian Band
