Young Flute Players at Cruinniú na bhFliúit, 2013

Cruinniú na bhFliúit is by now a well-established flute gathering held annually in Cúil Aodha, west Co Cork: the 2013 event, which was recorded by Irish Traditional Music Archive staff, was the 6th in the series. A key part of the Cruinniú is a ‘showcase‘ concert which gives two lesser-known young musicians an opportunity to display their talents.

The 2013 showcase featured Fergus McGorman of Ratoath, Co Meath, and Tim McHugh of Newport, Co Mayo, and it took place on 5 April in the Mills Inn, Baile Bhúirne. With the kind permission of the two flute players and the cooperation of the Cruinniú, ten tracks from their joint recital are reproduced below.

ITMA has been recording the programme of events at Cruinniú na bhFliúit on audio and video since 2010, and all its recordings of the different gatherings are available for listening and viewing to visitors to 73 Merrion Square. For other online ITMA recordings made at the Cruinniú, see here for audio from the 2010 concert, and here for videos filmed at the 2012 gathering.

With thanks to Tim McHugh and Fergus McGorman for permission to reproduce their performances, and to the organisers of Cruinniú na bhFliúit for photographs and for facilitating the recording.
