Looked into the Faoi Lan Cheoil series put out by TG4. I believe it's a production about celebrities learning Trad Irish Music and being taught specific instruments by professional musicians. Mostly all the dialogue is in Gaeilge with English sub titles. Great reality show.

No mystery Dhomhnaill, Kevin Relf posted it on my Irish Concertina website this morning. ;-)

Also, the video of Macdara O'Fartharta learning to play the Tinwhistle is worth viewing (available at the end of Dearbla's video). Hey Dick, where do you find these things???

Hey Dick. Thank you so much for posting this excellent video of Dearbla Lennon's determination to learn the concertina, specifically the song "The Providence", as a "gift" for her mother. The inspiration and motivation is captivating. The patience of her teacher, Michael O'Raghallaigh, is truly something that demands admiration. The presentation of this documentary is well done. As a documentary videographer for thirty+ years, this is something I could only wish I had done. It's broadcast standards, video and audio, editing - in fact, all aspects of the production were excellent. The flow of it, from beginning to end, captivated my attention. From Dearbla's announcement to learn the concertina, through her trials of practice, the use of Kitty Hayes' return to the concertina after a 50 year leave from it, the use of Michael's own children carrying on the musical tradition,.....all this makes for one good viewing. Thanks again for making this video available to all here at TradConnect. It's definitely a motivator for us to practice, practice, practice. Cheers and kudos to you Dick!!!
Danny,
