Today's master musician is Dr. Ciarán Ó Gealbháin, the prize-winning singer from the Ring gaeltacht [Irish-speaking region] in co. Waterford, in the south-east of Ireland. His PhD also focused on aspects of the Déise [co. Waterford] song tradition.
These relaxed, interview-style sessions allow you to listen to, and talk to, a recognised master musician in the living Gaelic tradition, chosen for their rare and authentic style of music-making. Question them about their background, training, influences, style, and their opinions on what is important in performing traditional music well. Their deep, embedded knowledge, and ingrained style, as a living master, will hopefully help you to make your own music sound more authentically Gaelic.
