Siar is Aniar / The West’s Awake

A bilingual show celebrating the rich tradition of Irish song, focusing mainly on songs associated with the counties along the Wild Atlantic Way. Come and hear examples of Irish song including sean-nós, songs and poems by Raftery and Yeats set to music. If you wish, you may come along at 12.45pm to learn some of the choruses of the songs so that you ‘Can! Sing’ too!
Deirbhile Ní Bhrolcháin (vocals) will present this show of songs with singers and musicians Ann Kirrane (vocals, concertina) and Ann Sheridan (vocals, harp). The guest singers may vary on any given day.

Seó amhrán dátheangach a léiríonn an stór saibhir amhrán a bhaineann le hiarthar na hÉireann. Tar agus éist le samplaí d’amhráin, amhráin ar an sean-nós agus filíocht Raifteirí agus Yeats le ceol ina measc. Má thagann tú ag 12.45pm, beidh deis agat cupla curfá a fhoghlaim chun go mbeidh tú in ann a bheith ag canadh i rith an tseó.
Cuirfidh Deirbhile Ní Bhrolcháin (amhránaí) an seó amhrán seo i láthair le Ann Kirrane (guth, consairtín) agus Ann Sheridan (guth, cruit). D’fhéadfadh na haoi-amhránaithe athrú beagán ó lá go lá.
