Longford County Council is continuing to deliver a unique free music programme across the county this week. The Longford Live & Local outdoor music events programme is funded through the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media’s Local Live Performance Programming Scheme. A total of €143,000 has been allocated to Longford County Council to engage local artists, musicians and crew to deliver live performances over the summer period and up until 30 September 2021. The programme will see a total of over 50 live outdoor music events will take place in towns and villages around County Longford. All events will be strictly managed to observe COVID-19 public health guidelines and some events will be streamed live. Copies of the programme will also be available to pick up from local libraries, shops and the Backstage Theatre in the coming week.
Shane Crossan is programme co-ordinator for the free music series and he was speaking earlier on the Let's Talk show.
