Monk

Monk was initially created by Mati Luna (bass) and Miki Calvo (keys) in the summer of 2016, after a conversation about the lack of instrumental music with quality and groove, not produced in a laptop. The music is human energy, the secret is the emotion... We quickly understood that our music is not tagable. We didn't want to make something new, it just came out this way... We released a first EP with 8 original songs in the summer of 2018, which we have been presenting in different venues, along with other own compositions and a short selected number of covers. The band has been finally completed with our friends coming from the jazz world: Tomi (Sax) and Guillem (guitar) and most recently Nacho, coming from the Metal genre. The mixture provides a powerful sound, groovy and very rich, with clear influences from funk, jazz, latin and rock, all mixed together in a unique sound, from Barcelona to the world!

Cuireann Féile Iorrais fáilte roimh Monk as Barcelona na Spáinne. Bunaíodh an grúpa i 2016 agus seinneann siad ceol bríomhar nua aimseartha.

Éigse Séamuis MhigUidhir

Éigse Séamuis MhigUidhir

Béaloideasóir, Scríbhneóir, Múinteoir agus Fíor Ghael

In commemorating the 50th anniversary of the death of Séamus MagUidhir it is a fitting time to commemorate his life, his work and his legacy. Born in Doohoma in 1902, Séamus grew up in a world of storytelling. Myths, legends, folktales and superstitions were the norm and the Seanachaíwas king. The Irish language was the language of the community. Séamus was able to combine economic necessity with his continued education by going to Scotland during the ‘potato picking’ season and returning to school in Doohoma during the winter months where his teacher Mr. Michael Holmes was a compelling influence. There, they were to develop what was to become a lifelong friendship. Séamus attended Coláiste Samhraidh,Tourmakeady in 1936 to train as a Muinteor Timire.

He taught in the areas of Swinford, Kiltimagh and Ballaghadereen. Séamus’ first writings appeared in Béaloideas; later followed by a se-ries of articles in the Irish Language newspaper, An tÉireannach. These were published weekly from June 1935 to February 1937 under the pen name Sliabh ChairnHis first book, Dhá Chrannna Marbh, was published in 1939. An MarcachDubh, published in 1940 was followed by Idir Talamh agus Tráigh published in 1953. Both were a compilation of a series of articles published in Scéala Éireann, Irish Independent as well as broadcasts on Radio Éireann. Séamus’ final book Fánaíocht í gCondae Mhuigheo was published in 1944. He continued his writings publishing a weekly article in The Western People using the pen name PréachánNéifinnfrom June 1964, submitting his final article in March 1969. Séamus’passion for the Irish Language, as well as his pride in Gaelic Traditions is very evident in his writings. He frequently harks back to a time when monasteries flourished and Irish monks were leading lights of learning in Europe. The ruins of many of the monastic settlements still remain in Mayo. What better way to celebrate his work than to revisit them as well as the many other locations Séamus mentioned in his writings!

Múinteoir, scríbhneóir, seanachaí, scoláire – bhí séoiltear a lán bealaigh agus comh maith le sin fíor-Chríostaí a bhíann, agus fíor dhuine uasal.

B’é Séamus MagUidhir ceann de mhór scríobhneoirí Mhaigh Eo agus is mór an onóir d’Fhéile Iorrais go mbeidh an Éigse tábhachtach seo ar siúl ina Féile. Tá cliú agus cáil ar Shéamus I litríocht na Gaeilge agus beidh an Éigse á cheiliúra sin

Hello Delia Murphy!

followed by Comhaltas Summer Seisiún in Áras Inis Gluaire Carmen Cullen presents her show 'Hello Delia Murphy', a tribute to her aunt, the singer Delia Murphy. Delia was one of Ireland's best known recording stars of the 30s and 40s. A revered figure in Irish music Delia is thought of today as being one of the major figures of Irish song. She became a pioneering folk singer in Ireland and abroad in the 40s and 50s and established ballad singing as an acceptable song form. She was the first person to become a celebrity in this tradition and gave the Irish Ballad and folk songs the importance they hold in Irish and international music today.

Bhí cliú agus cáil ar Delia Murphy I lár an chéid seo caite maidir leis na ham-hráin a bhailigh sí agus a rinneadh sí taifead orthu. Rugadh í I gCo. Mhaigh Eo agus phós sí Dr. Tomas Kiernan a bhí ag obair leis an Roinn Gnóthaí Eachracha agus bhog siad go Londain, áit a raibh Delia ag casadh amhráin agus bailéid. In dhiaidh sin bhog siad go dtí an Vatacáin I rith an Dara Cogadh Domhanda agus bhí sí ag cuidiú le obair Mgr. Hugh O Flathery. Bhog siad ar fud an domhain ina dhiaidh sin agus is in Ottawa, Ceanada a bhí sí nuair a rinneadh sí taifead ar an ceirnín cáiliúil “The Queen of Connemara” i 19
