AGM 2014

Report

The KAM AGM/P was held Wednesday, Oct 15 in the cozy Book Nook at Sexton's pub. It was attended by some 20 few people who were entertained by the beautiful vocals of Coimhe Campbell and Gracie Wallis. Several bottles of wine complemented the delicious finger food and set the tone for a convivial meeting with two reports, an election and free-ranging discussion of the KAM vision and mission statements.

The report on this past year's concerts was given by Josephine Boland who pointed out the wide vairety of musical styles and genres represented, from modern and traditional jazz, to traditional Irish and American music, with eclectic songwriters also included. Also with the Gig Room Launch and the advent of younger performers in support slots, a wide range of ages have been involved in the concerts as well.
