Arklow Music and Arts Scene to run Christmas Sing-Song competition


In September Arklow musician Yvonne Kenny started an Arklow Music and Arts Scene to highlight the talents the town has to offer, the page is growing in popularity and now has over 500 members.

To get in the Christmas spirit the page has a great Christmas give away which is explained by Yvonne below.

“I have heard some fantastic Xmas music & have seen a few great videos from some of you over the past few days so it gave me the idea to run a little competition on this page.

The Only rules are you must have an Arklow connection & you must upload a video performing a Xmas piece.

This can be yourself singing, playing or dancing at home by your Xmas Tree or a clip from a Xmas Concert or Nativity play.

It can be trad, rock, a group, choir, band individual – surprise me. Peter Kinsella from The Arklow Pottery Shop (0402 91266) has most kindly offered to sponsor the prize for adults of these beautiful music themed candle holders.

Gerry Power from Powersound 0402 33966 has offered to sponsor this fab half size Valencia CG160-12 Classical guitar for the under 10’s & Bridgewater will sponsor the over 10’s to under 18 section with a €40 voucher.

The winners will be chosen on New Year’s Eve & will be scored as follows. points for most likes with Peter, Gerry & another neutral party voting on their five favourite videos.

The total scores from these four will be added together to find our winner. The earlier you post the better your chance of getting the most likes. Please share this post & spread the word & let’s prove to everyone that Arklow is indeed the most musical town in Ireland. Age for each section is deemed to be your age on Xmas Day.”
