Friends Playing for Friends Join us for a relaxed coffeehouse-type get-together online where you can listen and enjoy the music, or other talents, of your Somerset friends. You'll be at home this year and we'll be Online "live." We'll have a Zoom room set up and our emcee will call on participants to "unmute" and play for everyone. Tune in to listen or play. Those who would like to play, sing or dance or do their comedy routine, will be asked to show up a little early to get on our roll-call list. We'll have an Emcee handy to keep things moving along. This has been a very popular event for the past 6 years. We'll provide a link to the interactive online meeting on our Somerset Online platform. If you're signed up for the festival it'll be on the Live Events page. We'll be providing some info here as well later for how to set your Zoom audio settings to get the best sound.
We're still going to be celebrating Turlough O'Carolan's 350th birthday this year and bringing back the Carolan Marathon which was so incredibly popular in 2020, when we had over 150 on Zoom playing along on the Bard's popular compositions. Join festival director Kathy DeAngelo and Grainne Hambly and a whole host of the festival's artists. No special preparation needed to come to this event, just your love of the music of one of Ireland's most famous composers. Here's the "starter" list of tunes we're sure to play, if you want to start learning them. If there's one tune you definitely want to know, it's Fanny Power. There will be a link to the Zoom meeting space on Somerset Online.
Other musically-appropriate instruments, besides harps, are definitely encouraged. Players and listeners alike are welcome.
When you're signed on to Somerset Online, go to our Live Events page to gain access to our Zoom room.
