14 July / 2pm - 5pm / FACT Bar / FREE
Come and play with the Carolan guitar at our open mic session. Carolan is an unusual guitar that carries its life story with it. Scanning Carolan’s decorative inlay with a phone or tablet reveals its history, from documentation of how it was first conceived and built to songs and stories from the players it has met on its journey. Come along and play Carolan and add to its history, explore its journey so far and also learn how to design your own interactive decorative patterns.
