Oíche ar an Sean-nós

Comhrá Ceoil, in conjunction with the Centre for Irish Studies at NUI Galway will host a celebration of sean-nós performance on Friday, 21 February 2014 at Taibhdhearc na Gaillimhe as part of the International Council of Traditional Music (Ireland) annual conference.

The concert will showcase current and past recipients of the sean-nós artist in residence scheme at the Centre for Irish Studies. ’Music, Place and Community’, the conference theme, resonates with the rich traditions of sean-nós dancing and sean-nós singing, and echoes the interrelationships between music, song and dance within Connemara Gaeltacht communities.

The Taibhdhearc stage provides a natural platform in Galway City in which to enjoy the creativity of the performance traditions of the Connemara Gaeltacht. The performance will bring together Joe John Mac An Iomaire, last year’s sean-nós artist in residence, previous recipients Treasa Ní Mhiolláin and Róisín Ní Mháinín, in addition to Gearóid Ó Dubháin artist in residence for 2014. The evening will be facilitated by singer and scholar, Dr Lillis Ó Laoire as Fear an Tí.

Tickets are available from Taibhdhearc na Gaillimhe or on the door on the night of the event.  Tickets €10 and €8 (concession).

Is mór ag Comhrá Ceoil agus ag Ionad an Léinn Éireannaigh, OÉ Gaillimh oíche sean-nóis a chur i láthair sa Taibhdhearc ar an 21ú Feabhra 2014.  Eagrófar an oíche mar chuid de chomhdháil idirnáisiúnta ICTM atá ag teacht go Gaillimh don chéad uair.

Is éard a bheidh sa taispeántas ná na Damhsóirí agus na hAmhránaithe Cónaitheacha a ceapadh in Ionad an Léinn Eireannaigh ó 2009 go dtí an lá inniu.  Is é téama na comhdhála ná ’Ceol: An Áit agus an Pobal’, agus tá dlúthcheangal idir an téama seo agus na traidisiúin sean-nóis i gConamara agus i nGaillimh trí chéile.

Gan aon agó, is í an Taibhdhearc an áit is oiriúnaí i nGaillimh chun an cheolchoirm seo a chur ar stáitse de bharr an suíomh lárnach atá ag an amharclann sa chultúr Gaelach.  Cloisfear Joe John Mac An Iomaire, Treasa Ní Mhiolláin agus ar staitse chom maith beidh Róisín Ní Mhainín agus Gearóid Ó Dubháín, damhsóir don bhliain 2014.  Is é an Dr Lillis Ó Laoire a bheidh ina Fhear an Tí ar an ócaid.
