International music day – love:live music 2012 will take place on Thursday 21st June. It’s shaping up to be an extraordinary celebration of music in Ireland. The love:live music movement is Ireland’s part in the Fête de la Musique, first held in France thirty years ago and now a worldwide programme of free musical events on the summer solstice (21st June) each year. Comhaltas will play a central role in these celebrations all over Ireland. A Comhaltas Seisiun show provides an opportunity for all to experience and be entertained by the vibrancy of our Irish cultural traditions.
