Culture Night 2020

We’re delighted to be participating in Limerick’s Culture Night, taking place on Friday 18th 2020.

After being close to disbanding permanently, with the last performance being over two years ago, our historical community band has made an exciting comeback with previous members, new members, a new musical director, and the support of the Garryowen community.

During this difficult time with Covid-19 presenting many challenges for bands, orchestras and musical groups, Culture Night 2020 is taking place online.

St. John’s Brass & Reed Band is participating virtually, with a video that takes viewers from 1865 to 2020, presenting a rich history and a connected community of band members; some with two or three generations in a family playing in the band. We also introduce our exciting new outreach programme, First Steps in Music, launching this month with two of our local schools, helping to encourage and support children learning to play instruments.
