About the event

Creative Places Baltinglass is delighted to that the Mobile Music Machine Artist in Residence, created specifically for the residents of Baltinglass Community Hospital, has officially started.

Between July and September 2023, Mobile Music Machine will deliver six concerts to the residents of Baltinglass Community Hospital. The first concert took on the 31st of July featured violinist Lynda O'Connor, Gerald Peregrine on cello and Niall O'Sullivan on trumpet.

The final two concerts will take place in August and September, featuring acclaimed singers Mary Coughlan and Niamh Kavanagh, Dermot Dunne on accordion, and pianist Vincent Lynch.

Mobile Music Machine was established in 2020 by Gerald Peregrine, an Irish cellist, soloist, chamber and orchestral performer, as a rapid response to the COVID pandemic. The project delivered over 1,900 live musical performances in residential care homes, hospitals, day-care centres and mental health settings, featured a host of Ireland's most well-known artists and provided employment to over 100 artists.

The Covid Care Concerts were the largest artist-led response to the pandemic on a global scale and reached a wide audience across Ireland. Since 2020, Mobile Music Machine has performed for over 150,000 people in 23 counties.

Creative Places Baltinglass is managed by Wicklow County Arts Office and is funded by the Arts Council, as part of the national Creative Places Programme.
