Keee-razy!

I did it! I threw caution to the winds, and I booked plane tickets to Cork for the Ireland Sacred Harp Convention! Excitement!

On account of a) lack of singings in Cambridge, and b) the expense and c) the lousy timing of the London singings relative to train trips to and from Cambridge, I haven't managed to get to a singing since August, and I've missed it terribly. Well, no more! I am going to Cork, and I am going to sing. Especially since this is a singing that I've been told about since it started, and I could never afford to travel from Chicago. Well, I can afford to travel from Cambridge. It's not exactly the cheapest thing I could do, but in the end, I can afford it, and I'd feel horrible if I didn't go, so I'm going.

Huzzah!

According to the Facebook page for the convention, it'll start at 10 AM, probably on both mornings, and I'd guess that it'll run till some point mid-afternoon. A 10 AM singing in the States would probably end around 3:30 or 4-ish, but I've never been singing in Cork, so I don't know what their exact time frame is.

According to the minutes, the 2014 convention had two sessions after lunch, which indicates that they ran till about 3 in the afternoon (assuming lunch was over at 1, and each session is about an hour long). Your best bet might be to bring the parents around 11-ish to catch some of the singing and maybe some lunch as well.

It'll be at St. Maries of the Isle School on Bishop Street, in the city. If you want more exact information, let me know and I'll send you the e-mail addresses of the Cork Singer and of the singing chair, who should know these things.
