In 2022, the Shared Music of Dalriada project brought young musicians together on Rathlin Island to explore the traditional music, song and dance shared by communities of all backgrounds across North Antrim and Southwest Scotland. Starting with music from Coleraine Museum’s Sam Henry archive, the participants explored music, song and dance from Ulster Scots, Scots Gaelic, Gaeilge, English and Rathlin traditions.



Welcomed by the Mayor of the Causeway Coast and Glens, Cllr Ivor Wallace, the young musicians gave a special performance in March 2023 as part of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s programme to celebrate Seachtain na Gaelige / Irish Language Week and mark the end of the 2022-2023 programme.



On behalf of Glens of Antrim Comhaltas, Jenny Connor said: Thank you for your support for the Shared Music Project in the Flowerfield Arts Centre on Saturday March 11th 2023. The young people were able to showcase their talents and they really enjoyed the experience. Go raibh míle maith agat.”
