Dublin City Council and the Near Media Co-op lead a community media partnership to develop an exchange project focusing on contemporary practice of traditional music. The partnership will present a weekend of Traditional Music from EU featuring traditional musicians from Germany, Hungary, the Basque Country and Ireland. The invited artists will perform in the Unitarian Church in Dublin city centre, and in a concert in the Clasac centre in Clontarf, which will be broadcast live on Near FM 90.3, and later by the partner radio stations to listeners in their own areas.
The partners will also work together to research and plan activities leading to a future transnational showcase and celebration of traditional music in Europe, connecting artists and public through community media.
