SchottenFest is a celebration of the strong historical musical and cultural links which exist between Ireland, Scotland and the City of Vienna. It is the brainchild of Irish Singer/Songwriter Shane O’Fearghail, who is now a resident of Vienna, and the Vienna Songwriting Circle.
Now in its third year, it provides Irish Artists an excellent opportunity to showcase their talents in the Austrian City. Shane is a co-founder of The Songwriting Collective and this year four of its members, Danai Kelleher, Jon Ryan, Mandy Bate and Tony Bardon are travelling to Vienna at the end of November to support him. They will be performing at an informal curtain raiser on the eve of the Festival and Danai will be joining Mundy, David Keenan, Emma Langford and Ray Heffernan on the formal programme.
The Songwriting Collective holds monthly songwriting workshops at IMRO HQ. See https://www.meetup.com/The-Songwriting-Collective/
