Stories of traditional song, songwriters, keepers and collectors.

Songtrail celebrates the diverse culture of traditional music making in Drogheda through a walking trail experience for local and visiting audiences. An aural blending of documentary, musical recordings, biographical material, and anecdote created in the community using local knowledge, archives, musicians and singers. An alternative walking tour of Drogheda to give perspective and context to some of the town’s rich traditional music history.
