Hundreds attend Nathan Carter gig in Dungloe

first_imgHundreds of people turned out last night to watch Nathan Carter perform in Dungloe.The main street was wedged as far down as The Midway Bar with fans of the Wagon Wheel singer, who performed as part of the 50th Annual Mary from Dungloe International Festival.With gorgeous weather and fantastic music, the atmosphere was incredible. Nathan was even joined by a special guest – Daniel O’Donnell!Last week, Daniel took a selfie video while performing ‘Living Next Door to Alice’ in Dungloe.“I’m not too good with the old selfies but here’s a video in Dungloe today at the festival”, Daniel said.Addressing the crowd he says “people you’re on Facebook! You never know, we might be trending!” It certainly looks like Nathan was “Livin’ the Dream” last night!Tonight’s line up for street music includes Danny & James at 8pm, a hugely popular duo from the Rosses singing original and lively cover songs, following by The Mutley Crew at 10pm who are guaranteed to get everyone up and dancing.For a full list of events, you can view the brochure by clicking here.Hundreds attend Nathan Carter gig in Dungloe was last modified: August 6th, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:daniel o donnelldungloefestivalMary From DungloeNathan Carterlast_img read more

A Catalyst for Significant Social Change

first_imgby, Kavan Peterson, Editor, ChangingAging.orgTweetShareShareEmail0 Sharesgreen-house-rabbit Want a look at how The Green House Project got launched? It wouldn’t have happened without backing from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and their willingness to test a radical new idea presented to them by Dr. Bill Thomas.Bill’s idea was radical but simple — move elders into a home in their community that can provide the same quality of care (or better!) as a skilled nursing home at the same cost.The intent was never to convert every nursing home in the country into a “Green House”, explained Jane Isaacs Lowe, senior program advisor at RWJF in a new video exploring the origins of The Green House Project. The goal has been “to use this model as a catalyst for significant social change.”“What we look for is those ideas that are going to transform a field, that create the impetus for significant change. It’s really about major significant change in how we think about and care for older adults,” Lowe said.Check out the video below — RWJF is all about changing aging and we love!Related PostsTweetShareShareEmail0 SharesTags: Innovationlast_img read more
