An Droichead in partnership with Úna Monaghan are looking for a woman aged 18+ to take part in a pilot mentoring scheme, as an assistant sound engineer at An Droichead. Úna Monaghan is a live sound engineer specialising in traditional music and experimental music. She has worked for some of the biggest names in Irish traditional music worldwide. www.unamonaghan.com
This is a casual role, and will involve working at the An Droichead concert series. We are looking for someone who wants to work in sound engineering to help at the gigs, and hope to combine this with learning and training in a career path that can be difficult to access, especially for women.
Previous experience is not necessary, but would be an advantage. You must be very keen to work in live sound with primarily acoustic instruments and with music technology, with a view to a career in this area. We need someone who is energetic, enthusiastic, pro-active and willing to listen and work hard.
Other desirable qualities are:
· Irish language speaker or learner
· specific interest in traditional music
· ability to play a musical instrument
Please send a CV and 500 words on what your existing level of knowledge is and why you want to take part in the mentoring scheme to Claire@androichead.com before 12pm Friday 20th April.
Fee will be provided, amount to be finalised and training will be provided free of charge. (Where possible in a live gig environment!)
We will hold interviews on Wednesday 25th April 2018.
