Castlebar Gospel Choir
These periods in history have been accompanied by a soundtrack of exceptional music with some of the most enduring songs ever written charting the empowerment and perseverance that has brought us to present day events. From slave spirituals to songs of civil rights and beyond, the influence of this music has spread throughout the world and through the show 'Songs of Freedom', Castlebar Gospel Choir will endeavour to celebrate this wonderful legacy.
Under the direction of Kathy Fahey, this will be the choir's first time performing in Dublin and will be a wonderful night of music, not to be missed.
