We are delighted the Inspirations concert series at glór this Autumn resumes, curated by music broadcaster Paula Carroll. The theme is inspiration, mentorship and the acquiring of tradition. Young traditional musicians have been invited to select another musician who has been an influence on them and to perform a concert together. You may expect new insights, plenty of exchange and conversation as well as great music.

Fiddler Sorcha Costello, from Tulla, Co. Clare, comes from a family steeped in vernacular tradition. Through her grand-uncle Tony MacMahon, her mother and uncle Mary and Andrew MacNamara, she’s had an introduction to traditional music to be envied.  Highly regarded as a performer, she is also a very talented teacher of music. Sorcha has recently been awarded the title of Young Musician of the Year in TG4’s Gradam Cheoil 2021 Awards.

For fiddle influences she turns to fiery fiddle-master, Frankie Gavin.  Founder of the iconic ‘De Danann’, Frankie has played with the greats from Stephane Grapelli to Elvis Costello, and added no small amount of humour and verve to Irish music life along the way!
