No Harp Needed, 60-min Workshop

W3 Doimnic Mac Giolla Bhríde - Gaelic Harping meets Sean-Nós


Workshop Handout: DOWNLOAD HERE

Doimnic has been researching Irish-language songs for many years and has discovered significant similarities between 17th-and 18th-century songs associated with Irish harpers, and songs sung today in the sean-nós [‘old style’, unaccompanied] tradition, some being almost identical. He proposes that the sean-nós tradition takes off where the Gaelic harping / bardic tradition ended. In this workshop we will explore, and learn, M'Uilleagán Dubh Ó, a song that was played and sung by one of the last Irish Gaelic harpers, Donnacha Ó hAmhsaigh, or – as Edward Bunting called him – Denis Hempson. The lyrics were composed by the famous south Ulster poet, Peadar Ó Dóirnín (c.1690–1769).
