Music Generation Louth was delighted to launch Songlines with a performance and demonstration in the Oriel Centre, Dundalk Gaol on June 18th.
Songlines is a new collection of 10 children’s songs, reflecting and celebrating the growing cultural diversity of county Louth.
Songlines brought Music Generation Louth together with a wide variety of other groups, to research and gather songs with the aim of building a unique and culturally diverse collection of world songs for Louth. It was a particularly exciting project for us because it helped us connect with such a diverse range of communities as a means of building better relations in the local community. The collection has been compiled for use in primary schools and each of the songs is accompanied by a game or activity to further engage the children with the musical activity.
There are limited copies of Songlines currently available, however an online version of this valuable teaching resource will be available soon.
Check out the video from the Songlines launch event here.
