The Inishowen Traditional Music Project (ITMP) are proud to host the second summer series of traditional music concerts following the great success and popularity of last year. The concerts will feature Inishowen musicians who have made a huge contribution to the rich legacy of music in Inishowen both locally and internationally and will be staged in some of the most iconic venues throughout the peninsula. On these long summer evenings in July and August, nestled within this landscape of beauty and wonder, music of the highest calibre will enthral and inspire music lovers as together we celebrate the cultural significance of the Inishowen Peninsula.
