Late Late Show Performance, Ireland’s Favourite Folk Song RTÉ One & More

IMRO

Hey guys,

Hope you’re all having a great start to the new year so far. My 2019 has started off with a bang!!!

Last Friday night I joined Paddy Casey, Davey Cashin, Eleanor McEvoy, Loah, Sive, Sibéal Ní Chaside, Mike Hanrahan, Gavin Glass, Phelim Drew & Daoirí Farrell for a performance of Raglan Road as part of Tradfest 2019. I was so thrilled & honoured to be invited to perform the song alongside such Irish legends.

Also launched on the night was the search for Ireland’s Greatest Folk Song which I am so excited to be a part of.

Ireland’s Favourite Folk Song, is a brand new RTÉ 5-part series and national campaign hosted by Irish singer & folk legend Mary Black in association with IMRO Ireland which begins on One 21st April.

As part of the TV series & online initiative I will be visiting secondary schools around Ireland hosting songwriting workshops along with some very special musical guests which we start filming next week!!!

Between now and 8th February, you can log onto www.rte.ie/culture and nominate your favourite folk song!!!

Cluan

Happy Thursday everybody!!!!

It’s almost the weekend folks & the sun is shining again in Ireland so I hope wherever you are in the world reading this that your Thursday is a good one.

There’s something very exciting happening next Thursday :) June 21st, Clive and I are so excited to play The amazing RIverbank Arts Centre Newbridge as part of Junefest.

During the month of May I visited The Holy Family Secondary School, Newbridge College & The Riverbank Arts Centre to conduct songwriting workshops with the 3 groups. During the 3 hour workshop, the groups composed an original song. On the night of the 21st the groups will open the show performing each of their original compositions. The songs sounded amazing back in May so I really cannot wait to hear how they have turned out in the meantime.

I’ll be joined onstage by the wonderful Clive Barnes who will accompany me as well as playing his own amazing solo set.
