ta ra limavady: a celebration of local songs

free admission

In my contact with the old…I had the rare privilege of sharing their folk lore and their old songs. – Sam Henry, ‘Songs of the People’

This informal performance will bring to life some of the songs captured by Sam Henry, the renowned song collector from Coleraine. As part of a unique project run by Live Music Now and funded through the Arts Council of Northern Ireland’s Arts & Older People Programme, the performance will feature local people from Thackeray Place Care Home and Thackeray Day Centre. They have been working with singer Laura McFall and pianist Kristine Donnan (Voice & Verse), for the last five months. Each week the musicians have explored some of Sam Henry’s songs, including the little known ‘Ta Ra Limavady’ and the well-known ‘I’ll tell me ma’, and the Thackeray residents have shared their own songs and stories. This event brings the groups and musicians together for a bit of a sing-along, a bit of a performance, a cup of tea and a lot of fun. ‘Danny Boy’ is sure to make an appearance too! If you love old songs and great music, come along to join in.
