Explore your hidden talent with a 45 minute ukulele workshop to be followed by a public concert where workshop participants will have the chance to play alongside the young traditional musicians
Then later treat yourself to an outdoor traditional music concert in the Courtyard by members of Music Generation South Dublin’s Trad Group with a cup of coffee and a treat.
