President Sends ‘Very Best Wishes’ To All Taking Part In Irish Music Month
The President’s sending his very best wishes to all of those taking part in this year’s Irish Music Month.
Cork’s RedFM has picked its top 4 artists for the Local Hero Talent Search for Irish Music Month: Darian June, Yesunia, The Neon Cars and Sal.
President Michael D Higgins says it constitutes a major statement of support for Irish music by RedFM and 24 other independent Irish radio stations.
They’re working together with Hot Press, and are supported by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland.
President Michael D Higgins says he’s delighted Irish radio stations will be giving Irish musicians more airplay:
“I welcome too, the significant increase in Irish music, which would be played by participating radio stations, in combination with the mentoring and advice being provided as part of this year’s “A New Local Hero” competition. These initiatives will ensure a wide range of diverse and dynamic Irish musicians receive the airplay, that their work deserves”.
