Many of Donegal’s best-known female musicians and poets will be coming together this January 6th for Nollaig na mBan.
The Wild Atlantic Women and friends will perform their annual concert at Ards Chapel on 6th Jan 2023 at 7.30pm.
The free event will be a wonderful night of reflection, song and music, featuring singers, musicians and poets from across the north west.
The theme is hope, peace and gratitude, remembering absent friends and sharing current friendships as we embrace a new year together.
Organiser Brí Carr said: “We decided that it would be lovely to join together in a pared-back, prayerful easy-listening concert celebrating Nollaig na mBan with members from the Wild Atlantic Women and friends.
“All are welcome and the teashop will be opening for refreshments.
“The theme is hope, peace and gratitude, remembering absent friends and sharing current friendships as we embrace a new year together.”
