Further Event Information
Cór Cúil Aodha
Seán Ó Riada formed the all male Cúil Aodha Choir in 1964 when he took up a position as music lecturer in University College Cork and started out singing traditional hymns for use at communion time. Today, the Choir rehearses most Monday evenings in An Draighean and sings every Sunday at 10:00 Mass in Cúil Aodha, if they are not traveling. Over the years they have found themselves bridging the spiritual divide to the afterlife at many emotional funerals, such as Irish President an t-Uachtarán Cearabhal Ó Dálaigh, and well known historical Irish musicians such as Willy Clancy, Denis Murphy and Frankie Kennedy. This is a rare opportunity to witness this choir performing both secular and liturgical pieces.
Sean Ó Se
A native of Bantry, Co. Cork, Seán Ó Sé was born into an Irish speaking family immersed in traditional music and song. He studied singing under the late John T. Horne at The Cork School of Music. He had a long association with Seán Ó Riada, which began with their recording of An Poc ar Buile for Gael-Linn. He sang with Ó Riada on several radio and television programmes, most notably Fleadh Cheoil an Radio. He is featured on many of Ó Riada’s recordings including Ó Riada sa Gaiety and the film music of Rhapsody of a River and Kennedy’s Ireland. Since Ó Riada’s death Seán has recorded with Donal Lunny, Dermot O’Brien and Peadar Ó Riada He has also featured on a number of Comhaltas Echoes of Erin CDs. For TradFest Temple Bar he will be adding his voice to the joyful sound of Cór Cúil Aodha.
