A tribute to Mary from her friends & fellow musicians
Produced for the NUI Galway Summer Virtual Festival 2020
This sparkling on-line event pays a tribute to our colleague Mary McPartlan (1955-2020). Mary left us in the early days of Lockdown in April, preventing most of us from paying our respects to Paddy Noonan, her husband and to her family.
This virtual concert then will be the first since her passing that allows us to come together to honour her work and to remember her. The event will feature verbal tributes from friends and colleagues, a specially composed song in Mary’s honour from Sam Gleaves, master of the Appalachian banjo and song writer, whom Mary met at Berea College, Kentucky, and a special piece from her long time friend Máirtín O’Connor.
No tribute could be complete without some songs from Mary herself and these will be accompanied by an animated photo essay, highlighting her very active life and her enormous contribution to the Arts in Galway, Ireland and internationally.
