Here is a clip from the concert featuring Fiodhna playing The Lea Rig, followed by Jerry O’Sullivan’s and The Dimmers.
Fiodhna, husband, Padraig, sister, Kelley, brother-in-law, Stephen and friend, Michael Scanlon play a session with a difference – while crusing down the river Shannon from Ballina Quay, they played a variety of tunes on whistles, melodeon, guitar and keyboard. As part of the Kincora Traditional Weekend, held in Ballina/Killaloe, the Rolling Waves session was an afternoon session on board the ‘Spirit of Killaloe’ river cruises with James Whelan. With a full boat, they took sail down the river Shannon and after a while, some members of the audience sang and played music.
Fiodhna delivered master classes on tin whistle to both local and visiting players. With the class lasting for two and a half hours, students learned a few new tunes, techniques and theory. With other master classes on fiddle, accordion, song and flute, students performed in a finale concert. See this link for more details.
On Friday 1st March, an edition of RTE Radio’s ‘Ceili House’ will be recorded to promote the inaugural Kincora Traditional Weekend. The line up of musicians include Martin Connolly, Fiodhna Gardiner, Eileen O’Brien, Bobby Gardiner, Leon Agnew, Deirdre Scanlan, Paul Smyth & others. Event venue: Lakeside Hotel, Ballina at 8.30pm.
