Drawing from the Well SAOITHE

Drawing from the Well: Saoithe features traditional artists Paddy Moloney (RIP), Dolly McMahon, Sara Ghriallais, Catherine McEvoy, Frankie Gavin and Christy Moore.

Ranging from earliest musical experiences to sage advice to young people, to hopes for the future of the tradition, this series offers in-depth conversations with seven of Ireland’s most influential and outstanding tradition bearers.

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