Our TY students enjoyed a week of dance and song in the Museum of Country Life, in Turlough House. Events included, a percussion workshop with Robbie Harris, a workshop with the flautist and violinist Emer Mayock. We also participated in a workshop on appropriate music for silent movies with a member of the music group ‘Kila’ and the harpist, Cormac de Barra. We also learned styles of Sean nós dancing with Brian Cunningham. We recorded all the tunes we learned onto CD. A brilliant and beneficial week was had by all.
