A group of young musicians from Music Generation Laois attended a weekend of traditional music in Borris, Co Carlow, organised by Music Generation Carlow.

The Mount Leinster Traditional Music Camp ran from March 27 to March 29. The Laois group had the opportunity to work with some of the top traditional musicians in the country, including fiddle player Zoe Conway, concertina player Jack Talty and traditional flautist Conor Crimmins.

As part of the event, on Saturday March 28 there was an intimate evening of music in the Sacred Heart Church. The evening of traditional Irish music featured acclaimed musicians such as Zoe Conway and John McIntyre (fiddle and guitar), Damien Mullane (button accordion), Jack Talty, Aimee Farrell Countney (bodhrán), Conor Crimmins, and Dave Power (uilleann pipes).

The young Laois musicians who attended were Jessica and Sarah Bennett, Alain Carroll, Kurt Dineen-Carroll, Fiadh Fitzpatrick, Isobel and Grace Donnery and Kate McDonald.
