The Steeple Sessions, Dublin announce new series of concerts, Summer 2012.

The Steeple Sessions have announced their second series of concerts. They present traditional Irish music in its purest form and concerts are geared towards those who seek the genuine, elusive musical traditions of Ireland. Held in the beautiful surroundings of a candle-lit church in Dublin, the line up of renowned musicians/performers changes nightly throughout the Summer, ensuring each concert is unique and fresh.

Audiences will hear pin-drop unaccompanied sean-nós songs in the Irish language, alongside dance music and airs performed acoustically on traditional instruments including the uilleann pipes, fiddle, concertina and Irish flute. Many performers are Irish speakers who grew up in Gaelic speaking areas such as Connemara and Donegal, where traditions passed down from generation to generation, are sacred and are faithfully preserved.
