Clare Traveller CDP Showcase Concert: An evening of music, song & storytelling – a full and lively celebration of Traveller music, song & storytelling.
The evening’s entertainment – compered by Willzee and organised by the Clare Traveller Community Development Project – including musical contributions from members of the Traveller community Thomas McCarthy, Trisha Reilly, Helen Hutchinson, Thomas O’Halloran and Clare’s Keenan family – Mary Frances, David and Kathleen with Katie Theasby also adding to the musical feast.
As part of the nationally organised ‘Traveller Pride’ events, the evening in Clare will provide the opportunity to highlight the contributions made by Travellers to their own community, as well as to the wider community in Clare.
