Episode 16: Faces & Places – Carrick Water Music Festival
This week on Faces & Places Breifne sets off for the Carrick Water Music Festival and hops on the Music Trail to find out more about the festival fringe.
Catching up with festival chairman Liam Farrell and some of the talented participants on the trail, The Cat’s Meow and some of their fans share their experiences of the festival.
Recent arrival to Carrick on Shannon, Cherinet Delebo from Ethiopia, discusses his recent arrival to the town as part of the relocation of a number of people in direct provision. He discusses the welcome he’s experienced in the town and how life has been since arriving in Leitrim.
We chat to a number of attendees to some of the events dotted around the town and potential future performers who Breifne met playing the pop up piano around the town. Both locals and tourists tell us about their experience of the town and the music.
Another visitor to the festival, former Ireland U21 soccer manager Noel King, stops for a chat and shares his thoughts on Leitrim’s Niall Morahan being included in the Irish U19 squad.
