Bláth na hÓige is an exciting new song collaboration featuring some of Ireland’s best young singers. Under the musical direction of Síle Denvir and Colm Mac an Iomaire, the Bláth na hÓige ensemble showcases the multi-faceted talents of Caoimhe and Séamus Ó Flatharta, Méabh Ní Bheaglaoich, Cathal Ó Curráin, Megan Nic Ruairí, Piaras Ó Lorcáin and Máire and Étáin Ní Churraoin. Green shoots from the deep roots of the sean-nós singing tradition, from Conamara to Rann na Feirste, from Ráth Chairn to Oriall and from Corca Dhuibhne to Gaoth Dobhair, this project is an exciting adventure of artistic discovery for these young singers and a memorable waypoint on their musical journeys. On a quest to interpret and arrange sean-nós songs with a meaningful and creative purpose, their individual voices blend seamlessly, creating a richly textured sound that stays true to an unbroken, rooted tradition. At the heart of Bláth na hÓige is the celebration of young singers as they reinterpret and reimagine songs of old with a freshness and vitality that is sure to inspire.
Presented by Aniar, in association with Tradfest, this concert will be filmed and aired on TG4 in the Spring.
