The Happy Prince :Donegal Oscar

In a recent post on the Festival of Youth Orchestras, I included an audio  interview with composer Vincent Kennedy who accepted a Special Achievement Award from the Irish Association of Youth Orchestras on behalf of a Donegal arts initiative.I am grateful to the composer for sending this video on the remarkable project, commissioned via the Per Cent for Art scheme.

  1. I saw Little John Nee on several occasions in recent Glor, Ennis with the 'Derry Boat' and Johnny Patterson, The Irish Clown. Both were memorable, inventive and poiganant presentations and I regret I don't have a fuller record of them on this blog.
