So, the results are in and I was awarded a silver at the Midwest Fleadh Cheoil. Unfortunately I will not be able to test my progress against the best of the best at the All-Ireland in Mullingar because it was cancelled this year because of COVID.

I always find it interesting that often I learn the most from the competitions where I do not win.

The adjudicator this year was especially thoughtful. Her input will offer great guidance as I am immersing myself in the study of Irish traditional singing this year and have a teacher who truly understands that I am not trying to move the artform forward. I am sincerely working at erasing generations of modern influence.

I may never achieve the true Irish traditional sound that is worthy of awards. But the pursuit to truly respect what is really Irish is worthy in an of itself.

I wonder  if we had more virtual fleadhs would the American learning curve be quicker?

I would love to hear about your own fleadh experience!
