Second annual Literary and Music Festival to be held in Clara for Heritage Week

The second annual Clara Music and Literary Festival will take place on Saturday, August 20 in Clara House, Bridge Street starting at 4pm.

Local Community groups connected by the River Brosna will come together to celebrate the cultural and natural heritage of the river by hosting the Literary and Music Festival.

The festival will feature a performance from the Brosna Suite, which was composed by Carole Nelson in collaboration with local musicians and inspired by the river. The Brosna Suite was a Creative Ireland funded project in 2021, and each new performance is a unique improvisation and collaboration.

Liz Kelly will feature on harp and violin, and other musicians are invited to join in. Celebrating the spoken word, poetry will be recited by poets from across the region. There will also be workshops in the afternoon, where children will have the opportunity to explore music and the spoken word. Light refreshments will be served at the end.

The event is hosted and coordinated by The Clara Heritage Society, and supported by the Tidy Towns groups from Ballycumber, Pullough and Ferbane.
