Here’s the story of how Irish music gets handed down. From a dance the night before.. to accordion tunes through the floorboards… to university classrooms… to tunes with grandpa, Heaton travels to Pearl River, NY, Galway City, and neighborhoods around Boston, to learn how a few inspired players learned THEIR music… and how this has led them to pass it on.
Whether you already play tunes, sing ballads, dance sean nós steps.. or you don’t know anything about Irish culture… these beautiful stories from Rose Flanagan, Margie Mulvahill, Patty Furlong, Séan Clohessy, Josie and her dad John Coyne, Louis DePaor, Seamus Connolly, and Elizabeth Sweeney speak about friendships, community, and generosity.
There’s plenty of music here, too. Music and much more at IrishMusicStories.org
