A Bit of the Irish

Coming Soon!! In the July-September issue of Bandworld Magazine

Shamrock For the summer issue of Bandworld Online, we will present major coverage of the 2011 St. Patrick's Week parades. These include Dublin's St. Patrick Day Parade and the All-Band Parade in Limerick. Because we spent considerable time with each of the visiting bands from the United States as well as Spain and France, we will provide important information that will help directors line up with the best organizer for the purpose of traveling to Ireland in the future.

Our coverage will come from nearly 1000 photos and over 300 video clips taken during the week to show what a great destination Ireland can be for bands anywhere in the world. In addition to a photo spread there will also be a video program covering the events. Noted composer, Johan de Meij, has donated a full band arrangement of the oldest Irish tune, Deirin De, that will appear online with a full score and a complete set of parts. All of this will be posted live at our web site on July 1, 2011.

In the meantime, if you need help now to get going on a possible trip for 2012, please contact our great friend, John Cox. He has a tremendous background in the development of band travel in Ireland having taken dozens of high school, university and community bands to Ireland. His arrangements for sightseeing, concerts and parade participation is simply the best in the world.  His email is:
