The Locals presents: Backwards To Go Forwards

Islander and Arbutus Yarns present Backwards to Go Forwards, a film about the future of Irish traditional music; directed, filmed and edited by Myles O’Reilly.

Backwards to Go Forwards features a selection of the finest musicians in modern Irish music talking about how they got into trad, what they love about it and where they see it going.

The film includes live performances and interviews from the likes of Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh and Sean MacErlaine (This Is How We Fly), Zoe Conway and John Mc Intyre, Cormac Begley, Brian and Diarmuid Mac Gloinn of Ye Vagabonds, members of The Bonnie Men, Saileaog Ní Cheannabhain and her sister Muireann Ni Cheannabhain (Mongoose), Slow Moving Clouds, and Radie Peat (Lankum).

Discussing the documentary, Myles said: "I'm quite new to Irish traditional music having only just immersed myself completely in the last decade by following the sounds of Irish contemporary musicians whose backgrounds in music came from tradition. My ears followed the inflections of tradition in their sound, and in doing so my discovery became such a natural process, gently investigative, which slowly and surely opened the door to a huge world which I previously did not think belonged to me.

Travelling the width and breadth of Ireland making this documentary, away from stages and music venues, it is my hope that anyone watching who may not be deeply familiar with Irish traditional music, can share and experience the same journey of discovery and familiarity. I hope to gently open a world so close to their doors, through the music and words of some of Irelands greatest contemporary traditional masters."
