A Melodic Beauty is Released … Traditional music in the optimistic revloutionary years after 1916
Concert by Gerry O’Connor, Tiarnán Ó Duinnchin and Fintan Vallely at Chorherrenhnaus, Sindelfingen (Stuttgart)
A concert series in Germany with Gerry O’Connor, Fintan Vallely and Tiarnán Ó Duinnchin playing music that has blossomed in the new Irish state over the century since 1916. Some of this was the soundscape to Gaelic revival, the socialisation that was part of new-State celebration and the cultural lives of emigré communities in Britain and America. Airs, songs and dance music on uilleann pipes, flute, fiddle and voice from three specialists from border counties who learned from the great stylists and have been performing Traditional Irish muisic for most of their lives. Concerts in Munich, Stuttgart and Sindelfingen already arranged (see EVENTS) and we are open to other bookings in March and April.
