Event description
The most recent album from this foursome was hailed by The Irish Times as "truly one of the albums of the year".

About this Event

These four respected performers of traditional music from both Ireland and Scotland have collaborated to create a beautiful collection of new music and songs, inspired by the modern and ancient poetry of both the Irish and Scottish Gaelic traditions. This collection of music and song culminated with the release of their critically acclaimed album Allt.

Guests for the evening are Glórthaí Ulaidh, which is a combination of two choirs from Belfast (Cultúrlann Mhic Adaim Ó Fiaich) and Gaoth Dobhair, Donegal, (Cór Thaobh a’ Leithid), directed by award-winning sean-nós singer Dominic Mac Giolla Bhríde. Steeped in the tradition of Gaelic song, Dominic composes and arranges a range of songs for the singers and musicians to perform. These include his own compositions set to ancient Gaelic poetry, alongside other well-known airs.

Ceathrar ceoltóir traidisiúnta de bhunadh na hÉireann agus na hAlban atá tar éis teacht le chéile chun cnuasach de cheolta agus amhráin a chruthú. Bhí siad spreagtha ag seanfhilíocht agus filíocht chomhaimseartha na Gaeilge agus na Gàidhlige. Foilsíodh an t-albam Allt, a thuill moladh thar na bearta, mar thoradh ar an chnuasach seo.

Beidh Glórthaí Uladh, grúpa amhránaithe as cóir i mBéal Feirste (Cultúrlann Mhic Adaim Ó Fiaich) agus as Cór Thaobh a’Leithid i nGaoth Dobhair mar aíonnna speisialta ar an oíche. Tá siad faoi stiúir Dhoimnic Mhic Giolla Bhríde, amhránaí iomráiteach sean-nóis a bhfuil go leor duaiseana bainte amach aige agus atá sáite i dtraidisiún na hamhránaíochta ó aois óg. Is iomaí cóiriú atá déanta aige ar amhráin an chóir agus chomh maith leis sin, bíonn sé ag cumadh fonn agus á gcur le seanfhilíocht na Gaeilge.
