Brose Walsh Band Documentary

This heart-warming documentary will bring audiences on a journey through time with the Brose Walsh Band, Ireland's longest-running showband spanning eight decades from 1937 to today. 

The documentary will feature a treasure trove of old photos, letters, and stories – including a letter from President Nixon – it captures the band's extraordinary history. From gig-packed months to surviving a crash landing, the film will preserve their incredible tales. But it's more than a trip to the past; it's a cultural treasure celebrating Mayo's music heritage within and without of the county. Through interviews with band members and archival materials, it will weave a tapestry of nostalgia and celebration. 

The documentary will be premiered in grand style as part of a larger tribute event featuring the band's live performance and an exhibition of cherished memorabilia at Castelbar's Linen Hall.
