Gail Henry- Radio Producer RTElyricfm
"Participation in the Feis is character building and strengthening. You have to learn how to present yourself and your music, to learn how to conquer nerves, to be able to receive positive and negative feedback from the international adjudication panel and to improvise and keep going through adversity. I would strongly advocate participation for all young artists"..
