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.
We also hold an annual festival which is now dedicated to the memory of Frank Finn, one of our founding members.
The Frank Finn Traditional Singing Weekend this year took place on 4th to 6th October 2013 at the Yeats Country Hotel, Rosses Point, Co Sligo
