Next Wednesday 11 November young musicians from across the country will be joined by Guest of Honour, Minister for Education and Skills, Jan O’Sullivan T.D., for the premiere screening of their original music videos, produced as part of a 12-county tour of The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus during the summer of 2015!
REVEAL Day, an initiative spear-headed by Music Generation in partnership with The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus, will celebrate and acknowledge the artistry, talent and hard work of these young people who wrote and recorded original songs and developed and filmed broadcast-quality music videos together with the help of three on-board engineers. Taking place at Dublin’s Irish Film Institute, REVEAL Day will mark the first time that all participants in the project will come together to view their work in high definition on the big screen.
Among those joining the celebration will be Hans Tanner – The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus on-board engineer, who worked alongside the students to record their songs and videos – and renowned musician, producer and composer Bill Whelan, who will speak with the group about his own experience, influences and inspirations and whose philanthropic support made the tour possible.
The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus is a non-profit, state-of-the-art mobile audio, HD video recording and production facility and educational resource. During its second tour of Ireland, in July and August 2015, the Bus traveled to the north, south, east and west of Ireland, visiting 12 different areas of the country: South Dublin, Wicklow, Louth, Laois, Limerick City, Carlow, Cork City, Clare, Westmeath, Mayo, Sligo and Donegal.
