Teenage commitment

An old GAA coach of mine defined commitment as doing what you said you would do, even when you don’t want to do it.

At the start of April, I put out a call to the youth musical community of Sligo – wondering would people be up for recording videos of themselves playing and singing to share with others. It was a way to keep people making music together while we couldn’t do it physically. And in the spirit of the times, 60 individuals/groups answered the call and said they would do it. 3 videos a week over the course of 20 weeks.

And even though a lot has changed in those three months, each person has stuck to their word and delivered what they said they would. On time.

We are into Week 13 of the 20 today, and I’d like to share some of the highlights so far. Enjoy.

Here are two great original takes on classic songs…

And two examples of people using the time to learn new audio and video recording and editing skills…

Two well thought-out and brilliantly arranged and edited videos…

And to finish – two wonderful vocal performances…
