The livestream is part of the in person Féile Róise Rua festival which takes place on the Island from 19 - 22 May.
Féile Róise Rua was set up in 2018 as a voluntary community based festival to revive the local music and song tradition on the island, in particular the music of local singer and song collector Róise Rua.
It will be broadcast live via Féile Róise Rua and Other Voices on Facebook, Twitter & YouTube on 19th May at 8pm and fans can set a reminder here. For more information, go to www.feileroiserua.com or follow us on all social media.
As part of the livestream the Féile Róise Rua community also hope to raise money for the local community centre which is central to life on the island, as well as for Gemma’s Legacy for Hope - a charity supporting mental health services in north-west Donegal. You can donate via the Go Fund Me page here.
The festival is funded by the Arts Council of Ireland, Foras na Gaeilge, Ealaín na Gaeltachta Donegal County Council and Three Ireland.
