Clár Ceoltóir Cónaíthíoch – Musician in Residence Programme

Each year an accomplished musician takes up residence for our week-long summer school to share their skills and experience with students.

  The Musician in Residence programme allows students to meet professional musicians in an informal setting to discuss all aspects of being a traditional musician (the current context of the music) and its role and function within our wider lifestyle. The aim is to illustrate and bring awareness to the students of the wider context of the music which is being taught in class. This exposure reinforces and consolidates students’ interest in the music. It encourages and complements their interest, and in the longer term gives them confidence in pursuing their interest in their particular instrument.

Some of our past musicians in residence have been John E. Lavelle, Joe Burke, John Carty, Liam O’Connor, Mary Bergin, Laoise Kelly, Catherine McEvoy, Micheál Ó’Raghallaigh, Mick O’Brien, Treasa Ní Cheannabháin, Breanndán Ó Beaglaoich, Eileen O’Brien, Kieran Hanrahan, Noreen O’Sullivan, Paul Dooley and Edel Fox many of whom have joined our tutors list. 2018, is the year of the pipes and Leitrim Piper Padraig McGovern will be your Musician in Residence.

Tugann an clár Ceoltóir Cónaithe deis do na daltaí ceoltóirí gairmiúla a chomhlíonadh i suíomh neamhfhoirmiúil chun gach gné den cheoltóir traidisiúnta (comhthéacs reatha an cheoil) a phlé agus a ról agus a fheidhm laistigh dá stíl mhaireachtála níos leithne. Is í an aidhm ná feasacht a léiriú agus a thabhairt do na daltaí ar chomhthéacs níos leithne an cheoil atá á múineadh sa rang. Cuireann an nochtadh seo leas na scoláirí sa cheol chun cinn agus a dhaingníonn sé. Spreagann sé agus a gcomhlíonann a leas, agus tugann sé níos mó muinín dóibh sa tréimhse níos faide agus iad ag déanamh spéise ina n-ionstraim ar leith.

Ba iad John E. Lavelle, Joe Burke, John Carty, Liam O’Connor, Mary Bergin, Laoise Kelly, Catherine McEvoy, Micheál Ó’Raghallaigh, Mick O’Brien, Treasa Ní Cheannabháin, Breanndán Ó Beaglaoich, Eileen O’Brien, Kieran Hanrahan, Noreen O’Sullivan, Paul Dooley agus Edel Fox a tháinig go leor díobh isteach inár liosta teagascóirí. Is ea 2018 Blian na bPíob agus beidh piobaire Liatroma, Pádraig Mac Samhráin do cheoltóir cónaíthíoch.
