Livefeed continues support for local youth music with series of online gigs in February and March
Livefeed is a Galway 2020 youth music project for young people interested in music performance, production and promotion. It was developed by Galway musicians, and long-time local music advocates, David Boland, Eoin Dolan and Tracy Bruen and has gone from strength to strength since starting in January 2019. The project provides new opportunities for young people to perform and enjoy live music and empowers participants to pursue interests in songwriting, performance, audio production, sound engineering and music photography through workshops, mentorship and hands-on experience at events. They have worked with young people throughout Galway city and county and, since the pandemic began, have adapted to online presentation with high quality pre-recorded live performances and online gigs.
“Everyone is really missing live music at the moment but these online gigs have given us something to look forward to on a Friday and are a real tangible way to support Galway’s young songwriters and musicians. Seeing the positivity and encouragement from young people for their peers has been inspiring.” – David Boland (Project Manager)
