music-generation-express-busYoung recording artists are being invited to step on board the Music Gen Express Bus and record their own music on Saturday November 12th in Ennis.

Located at glór carpark, the mobile recording studio on board Music Generation Limerick City’s double decker bus, offers a high quality recording experience and is aimed at all young people up to the age of 18.

A representative for Music Generation Clare told The Clare Herald what aspiring musicians will need to do.

“Just bring your your enthusiasm and your instrument, not forgetting voices. Recording slots of twenty and thirty minutes can be booked via the website, and cost €15 and €20 respectively. At the end of each recording session, each participant will receive a copy of their recording on CD, with additional copies priced at €3 each”.

Hosted by Music Generation Clare (MGCE) and Ennis Trad Festival 2016, this unique recording event is being made possible by MGCE’s friends in Music Generation Limerick City.
