Christy Moore ITMA 2021

ITMA presents singer, songwriter, musician Christy Moore in the first episode of a new series SAOITHE, featuring in-depth conversations with seven of Ireland's leading tradition bearers.

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, on Wednesday, 5 October 2022, at 8 pm (Irish time) and will remain available to watch online here on the ITMA YouTube channel, Facebook and ITMA website.

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:
