The Inspirations concert series at glór continues this Autumn. 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.
This season we move out of the intimate environment of the studio and into the theatre, where we look forward to exploring new ways of creating intimacy and rapport in the live music experience.
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. 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!
