Scoil Fonn agus Amhrán 2023

In 1982 Comhairle na Mumhan initiated Scoil Fonn & Amhrán in response to the concern being expressed at that time about the quality of air playing, narrow repertoire of singers and musicians, all numbers participating in slow air playing and singing competitions, and the over emphasis on reel and jigs, etc. at sessions and classes to the apparent detriment of our airs.   This year we continue with Scoil Fonn & Amhrán in conjunction with Fleadh Cheoil na Mumhan in MTU Tralee on Friday, July 14th starting at 10am

This will be an  intensive one day series of workshops on slow air playing, Fidil/Fiddle,  Cruit/Harp, Feadóg Mhór/Flute, Feadóg/Whistle, Amhránaíocht and Singing.  

 

AIMS

1.         To illustrate the connection between airs and songs.

2.         To improve playing techniques

3          Stair na nAmhrán a leiriú, bunús staire, aisling, grá tíre, irl

4          Dlúth bhaint idir an teanga, na hamhráin agus na foinn mhalla a fhorbhairt.

5          To re-awaken an awareness of our vast repertoire of songs and airs.
