perspective on international sounds from some exciting musical jandras.
The night of music is Part of the ‘Cultural Crossings’ programme and it will be rolled out in partnership with the Causeway Coast Arts committee.
Local Independent Councillor Padraig Mc Shane who is a member of the Causeway Coast Arts group has welcomed the programme to Cushendall.
“It is difficult to get acts of this caliber together at the best of times and it is difficult to get them in Moyle. So to bring this to Cushendall is a real treat for music fans in the Glens.
“A big thank you to Ballycastle Comhaltas who continue to promote Irish music in the area and who will also be contributing on the night!
“Those who enjoy adventure in their music will relish in what the night has to offer.”
