Music Generation Mayo’s latest programme ‘The Core‘, a creative space for budding young musicians opened its doors in Ballina Arts Centre in November 2016 and has been a bustling hive of musical activity since. With over 30 (and counting!) active members from across the county using the rehearsal facility, taking part in camps, industry workshops, regular performance opportunities such as monthly open mics, Facebook Live events and musical showcases it is a great place for young people to express themselves and work on developing their music.
