Orchard Recording in partnership with the Arts Department of Wexford County Council and the Arts Council are pleased to announce the return of the “Recording Development Bursaries” in 2015, for a 3rd year running.

This award is part of the Room to Record music technology programme initiated by Wexford County Council in 2012, to enhance the opportunities available to Wexford’s emerging musical talent.

Bands/Artists/Singer-Songwriters living in Wexford are invited to apply for one of 2 bursaries to be awarded in 2015.

Paul Dowling, Orchard Recording “The Recording Development Bursary has been devised to address the need for a greater understanding of professional recording practices/ways of working for emerging bands/artists/singer-songwriters. If you are preparing to record an album, embarking on your first recording experience or looking to increase your skill set within a recording studio environment you should apply”.

Among past successful bursary recipients are “Corner Boy” from Killinick in Wexford.

Michael D’Arcy- Lead singer with Corner Boy said “We believe that the overall process has helped us garner a greater understanding of the production, recording, editing and writing process.”

A spokesperson for Wexford County County Council said “This is an exciting opportunity for any musician or band to move from recording ‘in the bedroom / garage’ to a professional studio with the expert support, guidance and production that Orchard Recordings provide. The Arts Department is proud to support these bursaries for a second year.”

The Recording Development Bursaries will run in the Orchard Recording Studio Enniscorthy.
