Belfast City Hall Invite
Since entering back into the world of retirement - now more semi retirement, I continue to receive offers of work and the ocassional invitation. I don't intend to blog all of this work - for tax reasons........ however I will publicise one or two!!
I received an invitation during the week from the Boys' Model School in North Belfast to an event at Belfast City Hall on Thursday 7th March 2013.
A couple of years ago there was a similar event held at the La Mon Hotel where a group of boys from the Model were playing their fife and lambeg drum, along with St Patrick's boys who played their tin whistles and bodhrans - It was an excellent event as I recall Rev. Dr. Ian Paisley was the keynote speaker.
It will be great to see all the folks again from the Boys' Model, who embraced the whole fife and lambeg drum tradition, even though this tradition was almost extinct from our Capital City of Belfast.
Report and photo's to follow.
