Thursday 27th July 8pm – 9.30pm Boyle Singers Workshop with Antaine Ó Faracháin.
Dodd’s The Crescent Bar €5 (includes admission to singers' night.)
We're delighted to welcome Antaine Ó Faracháin as our guest this year during the Boyle Arts Festival.
Antaine Ó Faracháin is a Dublin-born traditional singer in both Irish
and English. He teaches in the DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama and
is involved in organising the Sean-Nós Cois Life singing festival.
Eugene sang this song in Boyle about 2 years ago, but the original RTE link is no longer leading anywhere, so here's a new one (same singer), from Michael Fortune's collection on FaceBook: Aodán Ó Ceallaigh singing 'As I was walking one evening fair, Is mé go déanach i mBaile Sheáin' [St John’s, Newfoundland], a song by Donncha Rua Mac Conmara, (1715–1810).
