“We have been constantly amazed at the level of songwriting, singing and musicianship in Livefeed - it’s been incredible to see! Not only are our participants growing as artists and musicians, there’s a culture of support and a real sense of community in the project that we’re very proud of.” - David Boland, Project Manager
Livefeed is a Galway 2020 project created by local songwriters Tracy Bruen, Eoin Dolan and David Boland with the aim of empowering young people to pursue interests in songwriting, performance, audio production, sound engineering and music photography through workshops, mentorship and hands-on experience at events. Since 2019 they have worked with young people throughout Galway city and county and, since the closure of the live music industry, have adapted to online presentation with high quality pre-recorded live performances and online gigs.
