The Contemporary Music Centre presents an outdoor music trail in partnership with Music in Drumcliffe in the grounds of St. Columba’s Church and its environs throughout the Music in Drumcliffe Festival, 11am – 7pm, 5 – 7 May 2012. The trail celebrates the rich connections between W.B.Yeats and Irish composers specifically, whilst also highlighting the many associations between Irish music and Irish literature.

The Trail consists of three outdoor listening posts featuring a total of four works by Irish composers: Brian Boydell, Rhona Clarke and Donnacha Dennehy; Brian Boydell’s Four Yeats Poems; Rhona Clarke’s Tread Softly and Five Songs; and Donnacha Denney’s That the Night Come. A walk and talk of the New Music Literary Trail led by Irish composer Benjamin Dwyer will take place 1.30pm, 6 May. Admission is free to both the trail itself and participation on the Walk and Talk.

In tandem with the New Music Literary Trail at Drumcliffe, the Contemporary Music Centre, presents its Art of Sound multimedia exhibition throughout the month of May in the Ballymote Community Library, Co. Sligo. The Art of Soundexhibition features photographer Eugene Langan’s dramatic and perceptive photographs of Irish composers. An audio-guide narrated by Eamonn Lawlor, RTÉ lyric fm, brings to life the music that is displayed. The exhibition will run from 1 – 31 May inclusive during library hours and admission is free.
