Music Generation Collaboration

Music Generation educators nationwide have collaborated to bring you a remote recording of Thin Lizzy’s Dancing in The Moonlight! The aim of this project was to raise awareness of the music of Phil Lynott amongst a younger generation and to mark the release of ‘Phil Lynott: Songs for while I’m away’


The recording features Philp Cassidy (The Core Mayo) on drums alongside musicians from Music Generation Galway City, Music Generation Limerick City, Music Generation South Dublin, Music Generation Wicklow and Music Generation Waterford


There is also a suite of tutorials from all the performers.
