Ag Lorg Ár Líne – Clare Women: Listening and Performing will premiere online on Friday 17 September, as part of Culture Night 2021.
Ag Lorg Ár Líne is a recording concept driven by research and collaboration. By listening deeply to archival recordings of their female predecessors, contemporary musicians Nuala Kennedy and Tara Breen are attempting to ‘collaborate remotely’ across time and space with some of their County Clare musical foremothers: Kitty Hayes, song/concertina; Nell Galvin, fiddle; Mary Haren, concertina, and singer Nora Cleary.
Through creative use of digital archival recordings, Nuala and Tara will explore and reimagine the details and subtleties of the music of these influential women performers through contemporary duet performance which will be premiered on Culture Night.
Ag Lorg Ár Líne has been commissioned through the Duala Creator in Residence Programme by Clare Arts Office and the Irish Traditional Music Archive
Time: 4pm – 12pm
