Danny Boy Jazz & Blues Festival, Limavady

A non profit making organisation passionate about delivering quality musical performances and experiences for all participants in the local community, Danny Boy Jazz & Blues hosts this grass roots music festival every year; stages other performances and recitals at numerous venues in the area; and organises workshops in conjunction with schools to encourage and nurture local youths.  The group submitted an application for assistance with the purchase of new/additional musical equipment which will not only increase current programming and events but will also enable them to host a wider range of activities and events to further enhance community involvement and connectivity – and offer a greater variety of music to wider audiences across and outside the Limavady area.  Alderman Duddy commented on this very successful festival which has been running since 1997 and in his opinion was well worthy of support.  A grant of £1,000 obo The Drapers’ Company was awarded.
