Music of Mayo Website Launched
www.musicofmayo.ie is a website featuring traditional music associated with County Mayo. The website emerged from the Music of Mayo project, a three month artist residency programme at the Linenhall Arts Centre, Castlebar in the Autumn and Winter of 2017/18.
Speaking about the website, Emer Mayock, the lead musician on the project said: "This website began with the aim of creating an accompanying resource for the Music of Mayo project. As such it represents a scrapbook of material related to the region: sometimes through association with musicians from the area, sometimes by possessing a connection such as with place name titles, occasionally explicitly written by Mayo musicians but most often from being collected in the region."
The Music of Mayo project is supported by Creative Ireland
