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.

A music tour of Ireland, at Munich Folk Club

Fintan Vallely & Tiarnán Ó Duinnchin –

A Traditional-music progress around Ireland, c. 1616-2016

This music journey begins with melodies from the 17th and 18th centuries that were committed to print by dedicated collectors in the dying years of their period of daily use. As a result of revival from the 1960s on, and driven by the ideology of the late 1800s which changed Ireland dramatically, this music has now become part of the stock, expressive variety of modern-day Traditional music, while also enjoying a life in Classical performance as well as in Rock and Popular musics. More-modern dance tunes and airs are played also in the recital, the material that was the core of pre-World War 2 popular music for social dancing all over the island. The instruments used are D and B uilleann pipes, a unique Irish form of the bagpipe developed in the early 1700s as the ‘Irish pipes’ or ‘union pipes’, and the pre-1860s, wooden concert flute. The repertoire is selected from the regional and unusual music from the Compánach  music-photography show in which the musicians also both perform.
