Event Description

Síle Denvir – harp and singer
Cormac Begley- concertina and baritone concertina
Clíodhna Ní Bheaglaoich- fiddle and viola

Síle Denvir was born and raised in the Connemara Gaeltacht and was surrounded by music and song from an early age. Her first language is Irish and this lead naturally to an interest in traditional sean-nós singing. Immersed in this tradition of sean-nós singing, she learned songs from many local singers, including Máire Uí Dhroighneán and Patsy Ó Ceannabháin. Síle is also a harpist and is a founding member of the group Líadan. She has toured in many countries with Líadan and also with The Chieftains. She has featured as a singer and an accompanist on various albums while also contributing to various TV and radio programmes. Síle is the presenter of ‘Sean-Nós’ on TG4 and is currently filming the second series. Having recently been awarded a PhD from the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance at the University of Limerick she is currently lecturing at St. Patrick College in Drumcondra in Dublin.

Tunes in the Church presents an authentic experience of traditional
Irish music, song and dance. Every night presents a different line-up
of some of the tradition’s most respected artists within the ambiance
of the historical St. Nicholas’ Collegiate Church, Galway. Attendees
of these concerts are encouraged ask questions of the artists and to
interact with the performers and occasionally they learn the chorus of
a traditional Irish song.
