Following hot on the heels of the stupendous TG4 Gradam Ceoil Awards in Belfast earlier this year, the city is set to come alive again to the sounds of traditional music, when the second Belfast Summer School of Traditional Music returns from 30 July until 3 August.   The School is the only one of its kind in Northern Ireland and brings together both the Ulster-Scots and Irish musical traditions in a shared celebration of both heritages.

Pictured at the launch are Alex Walsh, Glengormley School of Traditional Music, Chloe McGregor, Music Services for Pipes and Drums, Maria McAlister, Arts Council of Northern Ireland and Ronan Poots, Glengormley School of Traditional Music.
