Folk Nights at glór is a series of ‘folk-club’ performances created specifically for viewing from your couch, showcasing some of our finest folk musicians locally and nationally. In this series we explore Folk and what it means for the artists who make it. Join us online for some intimate concert performances in glór’s spaces, lit and filmed to capture at least some of the magic of live! Experience explorations in folk and hear the musicians in conversation with series curator Paula Carroll, on how music-making has changed in today’s world.
Dermot Sheedy, from Co. Clare, first came to prominence as the percussionist with Ciorras, a new band formed by Donal Lunny as part of the TG4 series Lorg Lunny. Since then he’s gone on to bigger things and an international touring career with Hermitage Green. Back home again now in lockdown, he proves himself a sensitive and imaginative collaborator in the folk world.
Aisling Lyons from Co. Clare is one of the rising stars of the Irish harp world – rooted in tradition and beautifully inventive. She is also an accomplished concertina player and trails a string of accolades on both instruments. She comes from a musical family in Co. Clare, her parents and brother (see below) being multi-genre singers and instrumentalists.
Sean Lyons from Co. Clare is one of the county’s most sensitive folk singer / guitarists. From the same musical family as Aisling Lyons, he is also a piper and whistle player. With his striking lyrics and imaginative melody-making, he has also proven himself a fine song-writer in folk and other idioms.
