Event Details

The Drawing From the Well programme – developed by the Irish Traditional Music Archive – connects Ireland’s leading contemporary traditional performers with the great traditional collections housed in the archive in order to inspire new work. So the ITMA ,in association with the National Concert Hall, has assembled many of those famous artists for an exceptional concert of traditional music, song and dance.

Virtuoso instrumentalists Laoise Kelly (harp), Cormac Begley (concertina), Conor Connolly (accordion), Aoife Ní Bhriain (fiddle), Jesse Smith (fiddle), Deirdre Hurley (flute), Mairéad Hurley (concertina), Aoife Granville (flute) and Steve Cooney (guitar) will perform along with renowned singers Daoirí Farrell, Radie Peat and Brían Mac Gloinn, and distinguished dancers Edwina Guckian and Caitlín Nic Gabhann who also is one of Ireland’s leading young concertina players. 

The programme will be interspersed with the spoken word by poets Vincent Woods and Moya Cannon who will present the performances. 

ITMA Director Liam O’Connor said: “I am delighted that for the second time in 2022, in association with NCH, we will get to showcase our wonderful traditional artists on the country’s premier stage. ITMA’s artistic programming is aimed at connecting artists with archival material to inspire new work.  This concert features 14 of the country’s top musicians, singers and dancers who have been nourished and inspired by the ITMA collections through the Drawing from the Well Programme.”
