Sligo Traditional Singers Circle
The Sligo Traditional Singers Circle was set up to encourage foster and perpetuate the singing tradition in the Sligo area by strengthening the bonds of friendship already established between The Sligo Traditional Singers and other singers both in Ireland and abroad.
We meet for our monthly sessions at 9.00 pm ( 9.30 pm during the summer ) on the second Wednesday of each month at Durkin’s Pub in the village of Ballinacarrow located between Collooney and Tubercurry on the main Sligo to Galway road.
NB: Please note the July session will be held on Wednesday night 16th July 2014 to coincide with The South Sligo Summer School
We also hold an annual festival which is now dedicated to the memory of Frank Finn, one of our founding members.
The 2014 Frank Finn Traditional Singing Weekend takes place 3rd Oct to 5th Oct 2014 at the Yeats Country Hotel, Rosses Point, Co Sligo

It features local and visiting singers, speakers and academics.
Announcement : It is was with great sadness and regret that we learned of the sudden death on the 15th of December 2013 of Mai Fallon one of our best supporters – Mai enjoyed music, singing and dancing and although she never sang, she rarely missed a session since we started and never missed a singing weekend. She will be greatly missed by all our members and supporters. May she rest in peace.
