Sligo Traditional Singers Circle
The Sligo Traditional Singers Circle was setup 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 9.30 pm ( 9.00 pm winter months ) on the second Wednesday of each month at Durkin’s Pub in the village of Ballinacarrow 17 miles from Sligo on 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 takes place on 4th to 6th October 2013 at the Yeats Country Hotel, Rosses Point, Co Sligo
