Following the online premiere of “Ag Lorg Ár Líne” on Culture Night 2021, ITMA & Clare Arts Office are delighted to welcome you to join us for a live interview and Q&A session with musicians Nuala Kennedy and Tara Breen, on Friday 1 October 2021 at 1 pm (Irish time). You will have the opportunity to hear both musicians talk about the project, pose questions yourself, and hear some live music.
The “Ag Lorg Ár Líne” video is now freely available to watch on our Youtube channel.
“Ag Lorg Ár Líne” is a recording concept driven by research and collaboration. By listening deeply to archival recordings of their female predecessors, the two contemporary musicians have attempted 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 explore and reimagine the details and subtleties of the music of these influential women performers through a filmed contemporary duet performance.
Ag Lorg Ár Líne was the outcome of the second Duala Creator-in-Residence award, funded by ITMA and Clare Arts Office with the support of the Arts Council of Ireland
