National Music Day : Ceoltoirí Chluain Tarbh

National Music Day : Ceoltoirí Chluain Tarbh

To celebrate Love : Live music on National Music Day 2013 the Archive issued an invitation to Ceoltoiri Chluain Tarbh, a vibrant group of musicians from the northside of Dublin, to participate in a recording session.  Nine musicans, ranging in age from 9 to 25 came to the studio on the 18 June 2013 and recorded the tracks presented here.  The Lonergan sisters, Áine (fiddle) and Aisling (accordion), joined in a trio with guitarist John Flynn.  John also played with fiddle player Cathal Caulfield and then sang a song.  His sister Sarah played concertina while Aoife Nic Domhnaill played two tracks on the fiddle.  The O'Grady family were the youngest representatives of the club.  Aisling, aged 11, played whistle and flute while her sisters Rachel (14) and Eve (9) played a duet on fiddle and concertina respectively.

Our thanks to Maurice Mullen and the musicians from Ceoltoiri Chluain Tarbh for their participation in this recording project.
