The Gaels Got Talent competition is targeted at non-professional artists. There are two categories - group and individual. The winner from each category will be given the opportunity to play on stage in Hyde Park at the 2013 St Patrick's Day event. For amateur musicians and groups the competition gives a great opportunity to showcase their talent to a crowd of up to 30,000. The set can then be streamed on YouTube , band websites or pitched to potential music promoters. The aim of Gaels Got Talent is to get a different cross section of the community interested in attending the St Patrick's Day celebrations in Hyde Park, encourage all ages to get involved and as the professional talent on the stage elevates year on year, build the competition into a sought after event.
In 2011 we had 22 entrants. On the night Best Group went to Castlecomer and Best Individual went to David Wilson. Due to weather conditions the 2011 Parade & Family Day was cancelled and the winning artists didn't get to perform - we arranged for them to perform next year and be part of the 2012 celebrations. In 2012 we had 18 entrants,
This year we will be holding auditions on Friday 25th January 2013 at Scruffy Murphy's on Goulburn St from 7.00 - 10.00and on Sunday 17th February 2013 at the Gaelic Club on Devonshire St. From here 10 finalists will be chosen. The Final will be held on Saturday 2nd March 2013 at the Penrith Gaels Club from 7.30pm. The night at Penrith Gaels will be held as a fundraiser for the St. Patrick’s Parade and Family Day Committee with donations being taken at the door, raffles and lots more! Again this year there will not be any charge contestants to enter.
