July frolics

Na Mooneys live at Errigal Arts Festival - streamed online

Just to let you know that my family band Na Mooneys have new compositions which will be played on the Earagail Arts Festival page, An Sruthán during July.]We were supposed to host our own Summer School in Gaoth Dobhair, Co Donegal this July, so hopefully we will get a chance to do it next year.

Again I’d like to thank all the new subscribers to my fiddle lessons here, I hope you’re enjoying the experience as much as myself. Keep giving me feedback please. 🙂

Quick update – you can watch the whole performance here:

    I’m excited to hear them. 🙂

    I will post them here but have to wait until they debut on the Earagail Arts Virtual Festival first.
    I will have to post another composition I was commissioned to write as well for RTE radio 1 folk programme, The Rolling Wave and for The Irish traditional Music Archive, which was played last week.
    It’s a slow tune called An Grianstad(The Solstice ) into a slow reel I named The Halting Sun.

    What an absolutely wonderful endeavor-thank you! My husband and I were to have attended your workshop. We hope you’ll be able to offer it in 2021!
