Éigse na Brídeoige is beckoning us towards a new spring and hopefully a brighter year. Due to circumstances and current guidelines we will be performing online this year.
On Saturday, 30th January at 8.00 pm we will have an illustrated song recital themed around the songs, composers and singers of Uibh Ráthach. Sharing their songs generously with us will be Seán Garvey, Rose and Peter Mullarkey, Clare Horgan, and Marion O’Neill. The session will be introduced by a great friend of the Éigse, the great singer/song writer Tim Dennehy. We recorded this session in St Michael’s Church, Waterville just before the current lockdown.
On Sunday, 31st January at 8.00 pm we will be streaming a session of songs of the sea with two great musicians from Corca Dhuibhne – Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh and Gerry O’Beirne. They will be performing songs from their recent CD Thar Toinn: Seaborne. This session will be coming to us from Muireann’s house in West Kerry.
You can join the events here on the website or on our Facebook page on the 30th and 31st January.
Make it a date, please spread the word and let us celebrate this great treasury of song.
We hope to stream more sessions of great Kerry songs throughout the year.
