Shannon Music Project is on the hunt for local adult volunteers who have a keen interest in music and would like to get involved to support and encourage a committee of young people to organise music events, workshops and performances for young people aged 15-25 in Shannon.
The project is particularly interested in recruiting volunteers who have specific talents in drums, song writing, sound engineering or guitar. if you think you have what it takes to support and encourage young people from Shannon to work together and challenge themselves through music then volunteering with the project can be a very rewarding experience. Contact Cathal for further details.

A practice space can be booked and equipment is available to practice with. At the moment there is a 5 piece Pearl drum kit, PA system, and Marshall amplification in store. Practice space rental is €5 per person for 2 hours. Times are agreed with the Youth Worker in advance.
Every school term the music project committee plans and organises music events in the Respond Building in Rineanna View. The main events organised are Bands nights where local Shannon Bands and guest bands from other music projects showcase their musical talents in front of an audience of adoring fans.
Acoustic nights @ The KBC
If your looking for a quieter night out and a chance to see local musicians and singers perform in a more relaxed and laidback environment, then the Shannon Music Project Acoustic nights are for you.
