The Rose in the Gap: Dance Music of Oriel from the Donnellan Collection
Gerry O’Connor will present an online talk based on The Rose in the Gap: Dance Music of Oriel from the Donnellan Collection (2018), a recent publication of traditional instrumental music from the South East Ulster area. His talk will highlight the rich body of dance music that was in circulation in counties Louth, Armagh, Monaghan and Cavan over 100 year ago. The influence of Scottish music and culture celebrated in this area will also be examined. The talk will feature landscape images of the area, maps locating the music to place, and quality images of the original hand written manuscripts. Music from the collection will be played by Gerry on the night.
Due to current public health guidelines, there will be no in person audience. The talk will be live streamed through our channel NPU-TV and will start at 8:30pm on Thursday 20th January 2021.
Na Píobairí Uilleann presents Notes & Narratives – a series of monthly performance-based lectures on traditional music, song and dance by some of Ireland’s finest traditional artists.
