Sarah Ghriallais is a sean nós singer from Muiceanach in the Connemara gaeltacht. Winner of Corn Uí Riada at the 1984 Oireachtas, she was awarded Gradam TG4 Singer of the Year in 2022. Tonight she is in conversation with Síle Denvir in the new ITMA series Saoithe.

The long-format Q&A style interviews, with performance and illustrative archival recordings, expand our understanding of these artists by exploring their influences and by seeking out their personal philosophies as traditional artists.

The fortnightly series premiered with Christy Moore in conversation with ITMA Director Liam O'Connor, and can be freely viewed on the ITMA YouTube Channel and on Facebook.

The series continues each fortnight with: Catherine McEvoy, Frankie Gavin, Sarah Ghriallais, Matt Molloy, Dolly McMahon, and Paddy Moloney (1938-2021).

SAOITHE is an extension of ITMA’s online archival series Drawing from the Well which is available to watch here:
