Singers of all ages are invited to join us for a series of online singing sessions taking place each Tuesday in May...and by the miracle of technology we can connect with families spread across multiple households! ‘Family Song Time’ is an ‘Intergenerational Singing Session’ for children and their extended family, bringing families together through song. Sessions will be led by Alan Leech of Chamber Choir Ireland. Part of Bealtaine Festival 2021, Family Song Time will include the opportunity to sing songs loved by old and young alike. In addition to weekly singing fun, special guests séan-nós singer Fiona Kelleher and rapper Garry McCarthy will be dropping in for some of the sessions.

The 3.30pm session will be focused on younger singers aged 4-8 and their families, and the second session beginning at 4.15pm for singers aged 8-12 and their relatives.
