The following was written by Donna Richardson about her experiences as a parent with 3 children who are involved in traditional music, 2 of whom will be appearing as members of the Sligo-Bound Six on 3/21/15 at St. Michael’s College.   

When I told my kids to “pick an instrument,” I never thought our lives would eventually become consumed by music. I was thinking a weekly lesson and a 30 minute daily practice. The thought of numerous lessons every week, traveling hours for those lessons, hours and hours of practice, performances, evenings at pubs, etc….never crossed my mind.

When you hear this traditional music you hear where you’re from.
