Music Generation Louth is set to celebrate Love Live Music, Ireland’s National Music Day, on Thursday, 21st June with ‘Music on the Square’, a free outdoor lunchtime concert taking place in the recently rennovated Market Square in Dundalk town centre.
The concert, which is being organised in association with Create Louth, kicks off at 1:00pm with a performance by the Louth Local Authorities Choir for Malawi followed by an array of musical acts provided by some of Dundalk’s finest young musical talent.
Music Generation Louth Coordinator, Gemma Murray who is based at the Co. Louth VEC offices in the town, explains, “we are delighted to participate in this national celebration of music and to have so many talented musicians keen to take to the stage. The recently renovated square is an ideal setting for the concert and we hope as many people as possible will pop along during lunch time and get a chance to enjoy the wonderful mix of music on offer”. Gemma confirmed that there was still some room left for one or two more acts, “we would be delighted to hear from other musicians and groups who have not yet been in touch with us, but would like to get involved in the concert”.
