On Saturday 12th of December at 8pm we will be bringing you the first in a series of online concerts celebrating Sliabh Luachra music. It’s made thanks to funding from Cork, Kerry and Limerick County Councils with support from the Arts Council and Creative Ireland.
This first concert is a collaboration with the Handed Down Series. PJ Teahan from Handed Down will be passing on the Dan O’Connell Memorial Award and we’ll be chatting about the work gone into the World Fiddle Day Scartaglin Sliabh Luachra Archive. There’ll be contributions from young musicians who’ll play their chosen tunes from the archive and there’ll be some singing too.
New Record Label
As part of the Sliabh Luachra Musician in Residence programme Eoin Stan O’Sullivan has undertaken to start a new record company to put out Sliabh Luachra music. The first release is an album of self penned tunes by the Tureencahill based accordion player Bryan O’Leary and it will be launched at the online concert.
The concert will premier at 8pm on Saturday December 12th on the music trail YouTube page: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAbunpghhwYa3jXPnkLDKNA
