Session Starts: 19:00
(In Person or Via Zoom)

Join us for our new monthly Traditional Singing Session here at TSEAC where it’s all about the art of song. Singers and listeners welcome.

Co-founded by professional singers, Fergus Cahillane, Macdara Yeates and Dónal Kearney, together with the team at TSEAC, our new ‘TSEAC Singing Sessions’ are an informal space where all participants are encouraged to perform and share traditional songs in a relaxed environment  (both in-person and online). If you feel like contributing a song, please make it known to our host and they will do their best to accommodate all singers on the night, both in the room and online.

 

Each month will also feature an invited special guest singer who will also take to the stage. So far our guests include Kevin Conneff (The Chieftains),  Gerry Cullen (The Voice Squad), Niamh Bury (Claddagh Records), Ruth Clinton (Landless).

 

If singing isn’t for you and you prefer to just listen, you’re very welcome to come along. We provide refreshments from The Cottage Café from 6:30pm and you can enjoy the music in our atmospheric, candlelit theatre. Or if you prefer, you can join us via Zoom for our live-stream. Whichever way you choose to join, the session starts at 7pm sharp and we finish promptly at 9pm.

Doors & complimentary refreshments will be available from 18:30

With Special Guest: RÓIS NÍ CHONGHAILE

Composer, multi-instrumentalist and performer, Róis was born in County Fermanagh. Her unique sound is an idiosyncratic combination of modernist/contemporary music with inflections of Irish traditional music, folk and Jazz. As a composer, her body of work includes large-scale and small-scale ensemble work, electro-acoustic, short film/multi-media works and installation audio-visual work also. As an accomplished multi-instrumentalist in the classical, contemporary and traditional music field, Rose graduated from Music Composition at The Royal Conservatory, The Hague. Her solo work as connotes haunting sean-nós keening songs and massive thunderous and booming soundscapes, earning her comparisons to the likes of Meredith Monk, Björk or Hatis Noit.
