This is the 7th year of the Seamus Grant Weekend and it promises to be a great weekend. All visiting musicians, singers and dancers are welcome to participate at all events.

A weekend celebrating our heritage, music, genealogy and culture and will be dedicated to the memory of one of our greatest musicians and gentlemen, Seamus Grant of Clonmany.

Seamus Grant (1934 – 2005) recalls as a boy that in nearly every house in his townland an instrument could be found usually a melodeon or fiddle. Seamus Grant himself learnt much of his music from his parents, his uncle, Willie Joe Grant and neighbour (White) Dan Doherty who was later to become his father in law. White Dan was a fiddler, singer and dancer and a great source of tunes, many learned during harvest time in Scotland.
