Galway Early Music is a not-for-profit voluntarily run arts organisation.
The aim of GEM is to promote both Irish and European music and dance of the 12th-17th centuries.
The objectives are threefold:
- To bring alive the music and dance of the 12th – 17th centuries in the context of Galway’s medieval heritage through concerts given by international and national performers
- To increase awareness and interest in this music and dance among youth and the general public through education and participation.
- To attract an already existing early music audience from outside of Ireland to Galway for The Galway Early Music Festival.
