Strule Arts Centre to host concert celebrating Irish language and culture

Ceolchoirm na Nollag 2015

Published: 30th November 2015

A concert celebrating Irish language and culture will take place in Strule Arts Centre, Omagh on Thursday 10 December 2015 at 8.00 pm.

‘Ceolchoirm na Nollag’, which is organised by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, will include performances by widely acclaimed artists as well as a number of local acts.

The concert will feature one of Ireland’s finest traditional singers, Pádraigín Ní Uallacháin.  Recipient of many awards, she is traditional singer in residence in Queen’s University, and is an author and prolific recording artist. She has unearthed and renewed the song tradition of her native Oriel, an ancient region of South-East Ulster.  Pádraigín will be joined on stage by Sylvia Crawford, one of the few exponents of the (wire strung) early Irish harp in Ireland, and by Darren Magee, a traditional fiddle player, composer and organist who is the recipient of many awards for fiddle and piano.

These artists will be complemented by local performers including Dromore flute and current all-Ireland champion whistle player James Mc Caffrey and friends.  They will be joined by Beragh’s traditional dance sensation Lee Mc Crystal.  Another Dromore act, Harmonise, will bring a flavour of Christmas to the Ceolchoirm with a selection of Christmas carols while songs in Irish will be performed by Ceoltóirí na hÓmaí with Ray Moore. There will also be songs from native Irish speakers from An Ghaeltacht lár in Donegal.

Tickets for ‘Ceolchoirm na Nollag’ cost £5.00 and are available to purchase from Strule Arts Centre Box Office by visiting www.struleartscentre.co.uk or telephoning 028 8224 7831.
