2015 sees the launch of CCI’s Traditional Singers’ Club, the Gaulín, paying reverence to Ireland’s foremost and longest standing singers’ club, An Goilín. The Club is a meeting place and platform for people who enjoy singing and listening to traditional song. While Club members are welcome to sing, they are also welcome to just listen. The Club creates a friendly and supportive space in which the focus is entirely on the voice and the person performing. While there will be an emphasis on Irish song, any traditional song is valued.
Each month sees a new guest traditional singer play ‘fear a’ ti’ (host). Our first host is Jerry O’Reilly, staple of traditional singing in Ireland and prominent member of An Goilín. He has travelled internationally singing and set dancing and will focus on Dublin songs for CCI’s Gaulín Club. You can listen to here.
