We did a gig last night in Whelan’s supporting Caracoles. Thanks to all who came down and to the band who played a stormer. I really enjoyed the set and had a great time.
An Cabaret Craiceáilte
The Cabaret Craiceáilte was great fun. Really good evening of traditional music and songs as gaeilge. Many thanks to Gary who played the Congas with me. I played 40mins of songs all as gaeilge including some songs I’ve never played before, such as An Spailpín Fánach, and my own new ones Dónal ná Fág and Ceol as an Dorchadas. The music for the rest of the evening was a masterclass of trad with Séamas Begley, Mairéad ní Mhaonaigh and Donogh Hennessy who played amazing guitar with them and The Campbells who had stories and tunes to beat the band.
Bhí am iontach agam ag an Cabaret Craiceáilte i dteach Húdí Beag i Bun Beag, Gaoth Dobhair. Oíche den scoth a bhí ann le ceol trad agus amhránaíocht as gaeilge. Míle buíochas le Gary a shein na Congas liom. Sein mé 40 nóim de amhrain as gaeilge maraon le cúpla cinn nua ar nós an Spailpín Fánach agus mo rianta nua Dónal ná Fág agus Ceol as an Dorchadas. Bhí sár – cheol don chuid eile den oíche ó Séamas Begley, Mairéad ní Mhaonaigh agus Donogh Hennessy a shein ceol den scoth ar an guitar leo agus Na The Campbells, a raibh scéalta agus portanna deasa acu.
