Hello Delia Murphy!

  • Áras Inis Glauire (map)

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
