How important is the understanding of a language to one's singing? I think this could be an interesting discussion in the context of Sean Nós and other types of song in Ireland.Continue

Anyone here interested in joining a gathering of Irish sean nós and trad singers, to practice and/or learn the art in an informal setting ?  (Free)

I notice this group has been awfully quiet for a while !  Just a thought to see who is left!

Welcome Sheila, my fellow Rhodey. Thanks for deciding to join our group. Please take the time to explore our pages, and by all means participate by leaving a word or two about yourself, your music, your ideas on Voice. Like you, I agree that the Voice IS an instrument. Why not start a discussion on that. I would participate.

I look forward to hearing/reading from you soon. Enjoy your time with us. Cheers,

I've seen several references in older works noting sean nós song as being 'non-modal'.  I would think sean nós would be off in a world of its own... anyone have a better understanding of the usage of the word 'modal' / 'non-modal' in the musical sense ? i.e. outside the confines of a modern scale perhaps ?

Please give a listen to Ms. Fionna Solenne Howell's music at . She's one of our group's members that has just released her debut album, "CROSSING THE SEA". Her voice and musical talents should not be missed and deserve your recognition. She's also posted two songs here at TradConnect: "An Caili'n A'lainn" & "Cathain". Her rendition of "Cruca'n Na bPaiste" is beautifully done and can be accessed at Soundcloud (click on link above). By supporting our group members we all grow and benefit. Enjoy. Slainte,

Hello all! Now that it's been posted by Tradconnect, please check out my debut album, Crossing The Sea! It's got quite a few Sean-Nós songs on it. You can also visit my website here to stream or buy it: 

Sláinte, Fiona
