Introduction Hello Readers and ‘Welcome’ to the 8th annual Water Music Festival. We hope the fact that you are reading this brochure means that you are trying to decide which of our many wonderful performances you are going to attend. We think you may well be spoiled for choice this year. Whether you are a classical music lover, a jazz enthusiast, a traditional and folk music follower, a rock fan, just curious or even tone deaf, we have something for you to really enjoy. From our now established and highly acclaimed Lakelands Gala Proms through our rock, folk, jazz and blues acts to sensational guitarist Carlos Bonell, you are in for a real treat indeed. We have positioned the festival to make it accessible and to bring quality music to the discerning music lover. Our fantastic Lakelands Gala Proms is attracting attention right across the country and is selling out within days of tickets going on sale. This year’s theme of ‘rogues, villains and victims’ put together by our esteemed conductor Fergus Sheil, shouldn’t be interpreted as a metaphor for modern day Ireland, but a rather delicious offering of classics from Liszt, Bizet, Mozart, Lloyd Webber, Gershwin, Puccini, Barber, Lèhar and many, many others. If you love classical music, come to this performance. If you are just curious about classical music, come to this performance – you’ll go home a different person. This year we are breaking new ground by including a series of music education workshops for children. We hope by doing this that we will help to encourage young people to take up music, to sing, play an instrument, to write, to take part, to improve, to enrich their lives. That would be a great legacy for this festival. Speaking of great legacies, we come to you this year without our heroic title sponsor of the past seven years, MBNA/Bank of America and without our equally heroic former Chairperson and co-founder of the festival, Fr. Turlough Baxter who transferred to Athlone last year. Fr. Baxter’s role as Chair was always one of enthusiasm, utter dedication and the occasional prayer to invoke manna from heaven – manna in the form of sponsors, donors and sunshine. Turlough always said that everything else would take care of itself if we got that much. Somehow it always did. MBNA/Bank of America has been the festival title sponsor since the very beginning back in 2005. Without their gigantic support this festival would not be here today. In fact, were it not for the enthusiasm of its then CEO in Carrick on Shannon, Ian O’Doherty, the festival probably wouldn’t have seen the light of day. Fr. Turlough had the idea, discussed it with fellow classical enthusiast Ian, and between them created a vision, pulled a team together and the Water Music Festival was born.

3


The seven year commitment from MBNA came to a natural end last year and as the company moves on to a new beginning, we wish to acknowledge and pay tribute to its former CEOs Ian O’Doherty and Will Curley, to Aoife Duffy who stepped in as Festival Chair when Ian moved away, to its management and staff, many of whom were involved as committee members in the past, to Suzanne Holmes former Director of Communications and to its current CEO Bryan Kelly. Their contribution to the festival has been magnificent and their involvement has brought some wonderful music and memorable performances to Carrick on Shannon. The festival also acknowledges its gratitude to Failte Ireland, Leitrim County Council, Leitrim Tourism, Leitrim Development Company and Lakelands & Inland Waterways, for their significant financial contribution and other areas of support which are vital to the survival and progression of the festival. We are also greatly indebted this year to everyone who pledged a donation to us on our online ‘fundit’ campaign. Without this generosity it is unlikely we would have been able to bring you this great programme of music this year We would like to dedicate this year’s festival to MBNA/Bank of America, Fr Baxter and to all our ‘fundit’ friends and funding organisations. Go n-eiri an bothar libh! Now back to this year’s extravaganza. Watch out for lots of street entertainment, pop-up performances in strange places, a Continental Market, Crafts Fair, Listowel Writer’s Week Winner at The Reading Room, “Women on the Verge of HRT”, Queen Rhapsodies, a Mayo Choral Festival Winning Choir, a Charleston dance workshop, a Eurovision Song Contest Winner, a pub music trail, a Magical Mystery Tour, jazz cruises on Moon River, percussion workshops, a huge family fun afternoon in the marquee with Gruffalo and Friends and Puppet Shows on Sunday 8th July, special festival menus from several of our town’s great restaurants and……… ‘Music, Music, Music’.
