Event Description

For a musical treat to celebrate European Year of Citizens 2013, Mallow Library EDIC is delighted to host renowned Italian Guitarist, Beppe Gambetta for a performance of music from Italy and beyond.

Music is a constant accompaniment to the lives of Europeans, being a fundamental element of our heritage and culture.  The EU’s Culture programme (2007-2013) has a budget of €400 million for projects and initiatives to celebrate Europe’s cultural diversity and enhance our shared cultural heritage through the development of cross-border co-operation between cultural operators and institutions. As part of the EU’s culture programme the transnational mobility of artists and cultural professionals is of major importance in helping to make a common “European cultural area”, artists and cultural professionals need to travel beyond borders to extend their scope of activities and meet new audiences.
