A collaboration of four musicians and friends, all steeped in the richness of traditional Irish Music.
Tonight’s band will lead the audience through a showcase of tradional sean nos songs and tunes drawn from their heritage and influences of Dublin, Connemara, Donegal and Fermanagh.
Born and bred in Dublin, Roisin comes from a family of musicians and grew up surrounded by Irish music, language and culture. She learnt her music at Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann in Dublin and was lucky to have legendary singers and teachers at her doorstep including Una Ban nic Mhathuna and Seamus macMathuna who have a huge impact on her musical journey. She has won honors at fleadhanna cheoil and performed on stages both nationally and beyond with various bands including Salsa Celtica and the Bonny Men.
Boyle, Reid and McManus owe much of their music to the celebrated Glasgow Irish Minstrel’s branch of Comhaltas. Irish Minstrels shaped the foundations for their musicianship which has been fundamental in shaping the raw traditional styles that they are drawn to. Joining forces with the sean nos singing of Chambers will display a balance between the intricacies of song and a good measure of powerful tunes.
Gillebrìde MacMillan is from the Milton in South Uist. He comes from a family with a strong Gaelic background.’S e am mac as òige aig Niall Sheonaidh Nèill à Gearraidh Bhailteas agus Ann Dhòmhnaill Ailean ’Illebhrìde à Baghasdal. Gaelic is his first language and Gaelic songs and traditions were always an important part of family life.
‘Air Fòrladh / On Leave’ is Gillebrìde’s second CD. His first ‘Thogainn Ort Fonn!’ was released in 2005 and he has also sung on CD with ‘Na Seòid’ and on ‘Home to Argyll’ – a collection of the songs of Ethel McCallum.
Gillebrìde stars as Gwyllyn the Bard in the tv series Outlander in which he sings traditional Gaelic songs.
