WHO IS (WAS) MARGARET BARRY?
THE QUEEN OF IRISH MUSIC, I WOULD ANSWER.
EXHIBITION – Sat 28th & Sun 29th
12pm – 6pm ALL WEEKEND – At THE ICON FACTORY – FREE ENTRY
Free open installation all weekend. Long overdue is a study of the role the travelling community played in preserving much of what remains of our traditional musical heritage. There is no doubt that the iconic Margaret Barry was hugely influential in the preservation of this rich tradition. Join us as we look to discover the giants of the folk music tradition who were inspired by Margaret and the now ‘classic airs’ she alone saved from the dustbin of history.
