Song of O’Caralan with Lynn Saorise and Lasairfhíona

September 18 @ 8:00 pm

Amhráin Uí Chearbhalláin/ Songs of O’Carolan
Is amhránaí/cumadóir amhránaí í Lasairfhíona atá fréamhaithe go domhain i stíl amhránaíochta sean-nóis Oileáin Árann. Tá a cur chuige nuálaíoch ar cheol Gaelach agus ar amhránaíocht thraidisiúnta á cheiliúradh ina trí albam iomráiteacha, An Raicín Álainn, Flame of Wine agus One Penny Portion. Tá toradh a saothair ina mósáic dhraíochtúil fuaime, é chomh húr, athraitheach le lá bog báistí in Árainn. “Anáil fíorghlan de chuile rud atá álainn faoi Éirinn.” Léirmheasanna Cheol Tíre & Fuaimníocht an BBC.

Is cláirseoir Éireannach í Lynn Saoirse a bhfuil go leor gradaim bainte amach aici atá ina cónaí i gConamara. Scríobh an cláirseoir aitheanta, Derek Bell, a bhíodh ag seinm leis na Chieftains: “Tá fíneáltacht den scoth ag baint lena cuid cláirseoireachta”.
Le dhá bhliain anuas, tá Lasairfhíona agus Lynn ag cuir coiriú ceoil ar amhráin Thoirdhealbhach Uí Chearbhalláin. Beidh sé seo mar réamhthaispeántas ar an tionscamh sin chomh maith le blaise dá répertoire leithleach, le haíonna speisialta freisin.

Lasairfhíona (pronounced Lah-sah-reena) is a singer/songwriter deeply rooted in the sean-nós singing style of the Aran Islands. Her innovative approach to Irish music and her new slant on traditional singing have been celebrated in her three renowned albums; An Raicín Álainn, Flame of Wine and One Penny Portion.

The result of her work is a magical mosaic of sound; as refreshing and unpredictable as a showery day inside in Aran. BBC Folk & Acoustic Reviews described her work as ‘A pure breath of everything that is beautiful about Ireland.’

Lynn Saoirse is an award-winning Irish harpist, who lives in Connemara. The late great harpist Derek Bell, of the Irish traditional group The Chieftains, wrote: “There is an exquisite delicacy all through her playing.”

Together, Lasairfhíona and Lynn have been working on settings of Turlough O’Carolan’s songs for the past two years. This will be a glimpse of that project in addition to some of their other songs and tunes, featuring some special guests.
