Songs in Irish for Beginners/Amhráin Gaeilge

Saturday, October 7th 2-3pm - $10, no registration required

Brandywine Kitchen, Mezzanine Level - 1319 Commercial St.

All ages. All abilities. Beginning singing or beginning Irish! Niall Ó Murchú and Peadar MacMahon will teach two classic songs in Irish featuring lots of repetition: Beidh Aonach Amárach (there's a fair tomorrow) about a young girl whose mother won't allow her go to the fair and Cúnla about a playful rogue who will stop at nothing to visit his friend's room. Peadar will play the tunes and lead the singing. Niall will break down the words and language and teach pronunciation. Singers will get a flavor for Munster Irish and Conamara Irish and a window on Irish songs we learned at school. Words and translations will be provided for everyone in the workshop. Fáilte roimh chách. All welcome.
