Fleadh Nua 2017 Programme

Fleadh Nua 2017

Ceol ón gCroí / Music from the Heart

glór – Sun 28th May, 8.00pm - €15

The final concert of Fleadh Nua 2017 will draw together five of the greatest performers of traditional music and singing to perform in the intimate atmosphere of glór. Matt Cranitch and Jackie Daly have established enviable, international reputations and their playing together, on CD and in live performances, displays great virtuosity and interpretation of a vibrant musical tradition. Jackie Daly and Matt Cranitch are acknowledged masters of the rich musical tradition of Sliabh Luachra in the southwest of Ireland. This culturally unique area on the Cork / Kerry border is renowned for its distinctive style of playing, special repertoire, and as a source of inspiration for both Jackie and Matt. Their most recent album, Rolling On, draws upon this rich legacy. As Dan Neely said in the NY Irish Echo, Separately, they are brilliant to hear but together they are sublime.” A recording sure to become a reference point of the tradition, it offers a wide range of tunes, old and new, from slides and polkas to reels and airs, played in the wonderfully expressive manner for which Matt and Jackie are justly famous.

Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh is an award-winning traditional singer and musician from Corca Dhuibhne, Co.Kerry. A leading exponent of the sean nós style, her repertoire also includes songs from a wide variety of folk and contemporary sources. Her childhood in West Kerry saw her immersed in a rich cultural environment and vital living tradition, which was to be hugely influential  on the foundation of her distinctive vocal and instrumental sound.

Singer and musician Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh will be joined by celebrated fiddle player Dónal O’Connor and the song writer and musician, Gerry O’Beirne.
