Live from the 2014 Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann in Sligo

Live from the 2014 Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann in Sligo

Jul 8, 2014

Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann is coming to Sligo and Celtic Music Radio will be there.

Translated, Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann means The Music Festival of Ireland and that is exactly what it is. The Fleadh, as it is usually called, is the largest single festival of Irish Music and can reach attendances of 400,000 over the course of nine eventful days.

The Fleadh is a competition for amateur musicians. From the mythical times to the present day there have been festivals in Ireland judging and celebrating the skills and arts of entertainers.

The focus was always on individual ability and so it is to this day. Few places in the western world have managed to maintain their musical traditions as successfully as Ireland has. The Fleadh is the showcasing of this tradition as well as  a celebration of the individual skills of the competitors. It is a valuable testament to creativity. It is a celebration of the new ways for doing the old things. It is a great holiday. It is a big party.

Celtic Music Radio in association with Tourism Ireland will be broadcasting live from a venue in Sligo in north-west Ireland on Saturday and Sunday 16-17 August with Gordon Hotchkiss and the rest of team talking to musicians, competitors, visitors and organisers plus live music sessions.

Tonight features Innes Strachan, Chris Nicolson and Ruairidh Graham of ‘Niteworks’ who are joined by Willie Campbell for a performance of new works by Innes and Willie based on a deconstruction and reworking of tracks from Willie’s new album ‘Dalma’.
