Congratulations to our music group “Bruach” in reaching the next stage of the Siansa Gael Linn Music Competition 2019!
To compete the group had to play and record a 12 minute piece. This comprised of an arrangement of traditional Irish dances, a slow-air and an original song. The group also wrote many original harmonies to add to the existing songs.
Siansa is one of the country’s most prestigious competitions for young traditional Irish music and singing groups. Organised by Gael Linn with support from RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta and Irish Music Magazine, Siansa provides a platform for talented teenage groups who aim to emulate groups such as Téada, Altan, Danú etc. While Siansa is essentially a competition, the groups are helped and encouraged along the way by highly regarded traditional musicians. The event is run entirely through the medium of Irish. Listen to the piece here....
Big thanks to Ms. Hannon and Aisling Clarke for all their help and support to the group.
Well done Ronan, Amy, Robin, Shane, Iarla and Leah - we are so proud of you all!
