Traditional Irish Music
Following the huge response that we received to our recent Songwriter Showcase with Christy Moore, we are going to continue with a series of articles that will showcase artists and their songs.
These articles will be presented under the title 'Behind the Song' and the aim is to highlight artists and songwriters and the songs they choose to sing or write. We want to give our readers some insight into what an artist or songwriter is thinking when they pick material.
The songs may be new compositions or new recordings of traditional material and it may also be a track from an upcoming album. If you would like to take part you will need to submit either a video or Soundcloud audio to us with some background on the song and what it means to you. There are a number of areas that you could cover when writing your summary.
This can include the background to the song, the writer, where you first heard it and who was singing it, other versions of it that you like ( provide us with links on YouTube, Vimeo, Soundcloud etc), who has previously covered it, tricky or difficult parts, lyrics that really stand out.
There are dozens of questions that you can ask yourself. The goal is to give some insight into the creative process when it comes to choosing or writing material.
Simply email us at this address.
