Talk to an Irish Music Master

Cárthach Mac Craith

60 mins

Sunday July 24th

14:00 - 15:00 GMT +1

Event Overview

The first Music Master we will meet is Cárthach Mac Craith, the prize-winning sean-nós singer from the Waterford gaeltacht, in the south-east of Ireland.

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. Some sessions instead introduce you to recordings of masters from the past. The deep, embedded knowledge, and ingrained style, of all these master musicians, will hopefully help you to make your own music sound more authentically Gaelic.
