Mary from Dungloe International Arts Festival Share Video to Showcase Artists Who Were Due to Perform

The Mary from Dungloe International Arts Festival, like many others has been cancelled but that did not stop the musicians and artists that were to participate in it coming together to celebrate the festival this year. It was a massive undertaking, but everyone came together with great enthusiasm for such a great project.

It was Bri Carr from Wild Atlantic Women Donegal & @Bri Carr Music that coordinated the collaboration and with the help of Kelli McGrory, Terry McGinty from Valley Studios and Sonia Nic Giolla Easbuig & Peter Jones from LIGID Léiriúcháin / LIGID TV Productions / An the online festival video came to life.

Following the fantastic response to the Wild Atlantic Women’s first lockdown music video ‘The Homes of Donegal’ featuring the breath-taking scenery of beautiful County Donegal within the original 2km lockdown limit, LIGID Léiriúcháin have challenged the artists in this production to produce their new home-videos within the 5km limit. They are looking forward to exploring more of the stunning County when the 20km phase comes!

While we may not be able to gather together in person this summer, the festival committee has worked hard with artists and partners to ensure the festival’s loyal local and international fan base can still enjoy the spirit of this beloved annual tradition and feel connected to the Rosses and its people.

Toward that end, we have produced a video that showcases many of the artists that would have performed at this year’s event. The featured song, naturally, is ‘Mary From Dungloe’ and features both Daniel and Margo O’Donnell as well as a host of local and international performers. The video is also an opportunity to show off the beauty of the area and the warmth of the people of Dungloe and is set against scenes of the Rosses and our very own Donegal Person of the Year 2019, Noel Cunningham, will also make an appearance.

Every artist is an individual artist in their own right, and to come together in a supportive, charismatic way adds charm and depth to our collaborations, concerts and music. We are extremely fortunate to have such an abundance of creativity and talent in our county and beyond.

We hope to reach the hearts and souls of our native Donegal folk, at home and abroad, with images of authenticity, real emotion, sights and scenery all on our front door steps. We have now proven that not only can we sing, or take mini music videos, but we can unite with one another in so many positive ways, even when we have to stay apart.

A massive thanks goes to all the musicians and artists who gave their time freely and sent in their beautiful videos from all over the world.

Sit back & enjoy.” – Mary from Dungloe 2020
