On The Fringe

ICYM "On the Fringe," it featured Michael Quinlan's 60th anniversary at City of Waterford Brass, 'i' at Garter Lane and the Imagine Festival

"i" is an exhibition at Garter Lane Arts Centre

'i' was curated by Sandra Kelly and is a collaboration of the work of a number of artists. It explores the themes of gender and sexuality and runs at Garter Lane Arts Centre until October. I caught up with Sandra and Director of the Arts Centre, Síle Penkert.

Michael Quinlan is celebrating 60 years as a member of City of Waterford Brass, originally called St Patrick's Brass Band. During that time he's had various roles within the organisation and has been a pivotal part of its growth and success. Michael joined me in studio along with his daughter Julie, who now conducts the band..
