Sligo Model Arts Centre concert in alley at Summerhill College, Sun 31st May 5pm


A Sligo Handball Alley, at Summerhill College, is being used by traditional musician and composer Emer Mayock for a contemporary take on a traditional artform.

At 5pm on Sunday evening of the May/June Bank Holiday weekend, Emer will bring traditional music and her own compositions to the handball alley at Summerhill College, Sligo. The music will reverberate around the acoustically challenging, stark, domineering and yet strangely welcoming structure that is the Hand Ball Alley.
Tickets are just €5 and can be purchased in advance from The Model, or on the gate from 4.30pm. This is an outdoor concert so please wrap up warm and wear comfy shoes as you will most likely be standing. The concert is just an hour in length and promises to be something truely spectacular.

Thanks very much for the mention. We're hoping the weather holds and very much looking forward to the concert.
There is an interview with Emer and the Model on tomorrow (Wed) night's Arts Show on RTE1 at 8pm where she talks about her reasons behind choosing the Ball Alley.
