A message from our Festival Patron Stephen Rea I am honoured to have been asked to be festival patron for this year’s Temple Bar Trad Festival; Dublin city’s largest traditional Irish music festival. Some may find it odd to associate traditional music with an urban setting. However, Dublin city’s legacy of great traditional musicians means the city more than deserves its right to showcase and celebrate our native music and culture.

The Festival organisers, TASCQ (Traders in the Area Supporting the Cultural

Guinness Storehouse® rises for seven storeys above the heart of Dublin. Within its walls the skills of brewing and fermentation have been passed on from generation to generation of Dubliners since 1759. Now, as Ireland’s number one visitor attraction, Guinness Storehouse® is open to visitors keen to experience every aspect of our fabled craft.

And, it’s the only place in the world where you can learn how to pull, and appreciate, the perfect pint like a true Dublin connoisseur. But you’re not only surrounded by history, once you enter the spectacular Gravity® Bar, you’ll find you’re surrounded by all of Dublin, old and new. To know our city, is to visit Guinness Storehouse®.

Quarter) should be congratulated in resurrecting a traditional music festival in the city and staying firm in their convictions to make the music more accessible. Our language, music and culture are what define us in an ever shrinking world and they truly belong to all citizens of the state.

Back in the time of mass emigration, the hundreds and thousands of emigrants who left our shores seeking employment and opportunities abroad brought with them the songs and tunes of our ancestors, and in places like London, New York, Manchester, Sydney and Boston, the familiar music and song fed the spirits of lonely people who in many cases would never see home again. Here at home, the tradition was suffering from a lack of appreciation by official Ireland, and was almost an underground culture, thriving without exposure on the airwaves. All that changed in the past thirty-five years, and now the music is seen as an important part of our culture and encouraged as such, with government and public funding.

Today, traditional music is experiencing a renaissance with increasing numbers of young children and teenagers taking up instruments and enjoying traditional music and song. The tradition is alive and vibrant. No longer seen as backward or out of date, we can with new found confidence and pride celebrate our national heritage and culture.

This year’s Temple Bar Trad Festival is a response to the interest and affection that Irish people have for their own music. It couldn’t take place without the existence of a large and enthusiastic cohort of musicians, nor indeed without an even larger number of informed and dedicated listeners. It is an opportunity for all of you, over a period of five days, to enjoy the best of music and to experience the facilities available in Temple Bar - Dublin’s cultural quarter.

AT FIRST LIGHT

JOHN MCEVOY & JOHN WYNNE

At First Light comprises the talents of world-renowned uilleann piper John McSherry and outstanding young fiddle player Dónal O’Connor, creators of Tripswitch, which has been described as ‘acoustic perfection’. Combined with the sublime talent of Francis McIlduff from the McPeake clan, the power, clarity and sheer joy of Alan Burke (formerly of the band Afterhours), and completing an already outstanding line-up, Asturian multi-instrumentalist and Traditional Musician of the Year 2006 Rubén Bada, you can see why the band is being portrayed as a dream team line up.

John Wynne is regarded as one of the best traditional Irish flute players of his generation. He released his solo album, ”With every breath” in 2000. He was a founding member of Providence, with whom he toured extensively and played on the albums “Providence”(1999) and ”A fig for a kiss”(2001). John also played on, and produced, ‘The Flute Players of Roscommon’ album. John McEvoy has established himself as an outstanding exponent of the north Connaught style of fiddle playing. He recorded and toured with the groups Bakerswell, Kelp and Providence. He released a solo CD ”Returning” (1998), and recorded the critically acclaimed album, ”The Kilmore Fancy” (2004) in duet with his flute playing sister Catherine McEvoy.

At First Light is surely one of those special pioneering acts that push the boundaries and redraw the map. For five very experienced and knowledgeable artists at the peak of their creativity, the future looks bright.

BREDA & CLAIRE KEVILLE A young fiddle player from east Galway, Breda Keville is imbued with respect for the musical traditions of her area and plays fiddle in the fresh unhurried style of that part of the country. Her influences come predominantly from older players ranging from Bobby Casey, Sarah & Rita Keane to Paddy Fahey, Paddy Canny and Joe Ryan. Her solo CD, “The Hop Down” (2006) on which she plays predominantly unaccompanied, also features her sister Claire on fiddle and concertina, Liam Lewis on fiddle and Terence O’Reilly on guitar. Claire Keville, music teacher and multi-instrumentalist, presents a traditional music programme each Tuesday evening on Clare FM called Music in the Glen. She can be heard playing concertina on albums “An Trí is a Rian” and “The Hop Down” and playing piano on “The Dimming of the Day” by Jerry Lynch. She performed in the States with Galway fiddler, Liam Lewis and with Clare fiddler, Pat O’Connor. She recently presented a Geantraí programme for Forefront Productions for TG4. Terence O’Reilly has been playing folk/traditional music since the early seventies. He is highly regarded in traditional music circles and noted primarily for his excellent and sensitive guitar accompaniment. He has toured extensively and has played with such wonderful musicians as James Kelly and Paddy O’Brien while he lived in the USA.

Well known in Irish traditional music circles, they recently teamed up to create the album “Pride Of the West”, a lively and intoxicating blend that does full credit to the north-west flute and fiddle tradition with unusual versions of some well known local tunes, as well as a couple of new compositions thrown into the mix. Arty McGlynn on guitars and John McEvoy’s son Paddy add their considerable talents to the recording also. Don’t miss this vibrant dynamic duo during Temple Bar Trad.

SINÉAD CAHER Born in Co. Down but living in Belfast from the age of four, Sinéad Caher was first encouraged to sing by her parents and learnt many songs from Ulster and her father’s home town of Downpatrick. While in college she sang in many folk clubs in the north and became friendly with fine singers like Len Graham, Cathal McConnell, Geordie Hanna and Joe Holmes. Moving to Dublin in 1972, she performed in clubs in Slattery’s in Capel St. The Meeting Place, The Stag’s Head and Taylor’s Hall, among others, and took part in TV programmes such as Ag Deanamh Ceoil and The Pure Drop. Encouraged by the American collector Diane Hamilton, she released “The Flower of Magherally” in 1977, a collection of 12 songs produced by Donal Lunny. Now based in Cork, Sinéad continues to sing in local sessions and clubs, has performed in the Cork Folk Festival and is currently recording a new cd.

Clan Ranald

GRÁDA

Described by Earl Hitchner of The Irish Echo and New York Times as “bringing youthful vigor, joyful virtuosity and bracing boldness to the musical tradition,” Clan Ranald, in their short history has gained the respect of critics and lovers of music alike. Band members include Martin Tourish (accordion), Luke Ward (boukouki) and Stiofán Ó Broin (percussion).

If this talented quintet appears anywhere within 100 miles of you, hi’ thee hence… Sing Out Magazine, USA

Named as being in the top 3 piano accordionists in Irish music in the ‘Rough Guide to Ireland’, Martin Tourish has been playing accordion since the age of 7 and is currently studying classical accordion in the Conservatory of Music. In this time he has recorded the successful album, Clan Ranald with Luke Ward, been invited to record with the national symphony orchestra and shared the stage with Patti Smith and Altan, amongst others. He has been involved with many types of music, including balkan, klezmer and the music of Astor Piazzolla. He currently plays with the cafe orchestra and continues composing new works for the band Clan Ranald. Luke Ward is from Cavan but now based in Dublin with the rest of the band. Though primarily a bouzouki player, he is also accomplished on guitar and bass. He is renowned for exploring the harmonic possibilities of the music and his style incorporates percussive and sympathetic forms of accompaniment, as well as counterpoint. He is in regular demand as a recording session musician in Irish music. The third member and percussionist of Clan Ranald is Stiofán Ó Broin. Originally a guest on the debut album, Stiofán has since become a full member of the band. His style is a mixture of steady rhythm, groove, subtlety and a hint of flare, which adds greatly to the richness and diversity of the sound. He has also taught alongside greats such as, Mel Mercier, Tommy Hayes, Johnny “Ringo” McDonnagh and Jim Higgins at the International Bodhrán School, “Craiceann”, on Inis Oírr. Since the making of the Clan Ranald album, Stiofán has incorporated a range of new percussive elements such as Djembe, darabooka and bones which greatly enhances the range of colors in the music.

With their infectious, modern take on Irish music, their high-energy live performances and three critically acclaimed studio albums to date, it’s no wonder Gráda has enjoyed a rapid path to success worldwide since forming in 2001. Deeply rooted in the Irish tradition with jazzy, groovy tones, Gráda’s sound is unique and unrivalled. Over the last three years Gráda – Alan Doherty, Nicola Joyce, Colin Farrell, Gerry Paul and Andrew Laking - has become Ireland’s hardest touring band. Much of this comes off the back of their highly regarded new album Cloudy Day Navigation and DVD Live in Dublin. The new CD features drummer Dave Hingerty (Josh Ritter / The Frames) and Vyvienne Long (cellist with Damien Rice), along with Dublin jazz personality Bill Blackmore on trumpet and Danish percussionist Rasmus Skovmand.

SUSAN MCKEOWN McKeown grabbed both song and audience by the throat, dragged them through heaven and hell and back again, and left the stage to the loudest applause heard all evening - Rolling Stone Once heard, you would never take Susan McKeown for anyone else. After singing on the streets of her native Dublin as a teenager, Susan left for New York on a scholarship to The American Musical and Dramatic Academy. Settling in the East Village, she soon became a regular performer at the legendary club Sin-É. Her debut album ‘Bones’ (1995) garnered wide critical acclaim, and set her on the road to an international touring and recording career. Along the way she has boldly yet lovingly re-imagined Celtic music, bringing it immeasurably enhanced - yet spiritually intact - into the new era of world music. Her album ‘Sweet Liberty’ (2004) drew accolades and a BBC Music Award nomination for her beautiful arrangements and collaborations with the groups Mariachi Real de Mexico and Ensemble Tartit. Ten albums later Susan has a catalogue of music that solidly spans the realms of world music and rock and along the way she has worked with such luminaries as Natalie Merchant, Pete Seeger, Mary Margaret O’Hara, Linda Thompson, Billy Bragg, Johnny Cunningham and The Klezmatics, on whose Grammy-winning album ‘Wonder Wheel’ she is featured prominently.

Niamh Ní Charra

JULIE FOWLIS

Kerry fiddler, Niamh Ní Charra has been strongly influenced by the wealth of local Sliabh Luachra musicians she grew up around. Somewhat of a child prodigy, she had support gigs for The Chieftains and Noel Hill under her belt before she reached her teens!

For those of us who don’t speak the (Gaelic) language, Julie’s records are like beautiful messages from another world. As enchanting, beguiling and fascinating as songs by Kate Bush and Bjork - Mark Radcliffe, BBC

A former member of the Riverdance troup, Niamh has delighted audiences with her fiery fiddling, fancy footwork and dazzling smiles across Europe, North America, South America and Asia. Niamh has now returned to Dublin, Ireland where she works as a solo and freelance musician, regularly gigging across the city. She released her debut album “Ón Dá Thaobh / From Both Sides” in 2007 to much critical acclaim. The album was listed in respected music reviewer Colin Irwin’s Top Ten Folk Albums of 2007 for MOJO Magazine (Niamh was the only Irish artist listed). She has also recently joined the Carlos Nunez band and and now tours with them as a solo artist.

FESTIVAL CLUB This year’s festival club will be held in the bar of Project Arts Centre, located on East Essex Street in Temple Bar. When the night’s formal events are finished, the club will remain open and will provide a venue for musicians and audiences to relax, get to know each other, and maybe share a tune. So come along to the Festival Club, meet the stage artists on a common ground and have a bit of craic together! The Festival Club will open from 11.00 until late each night over the festival weekend.

Julie Fowlis burst onto the wider music scene in 2006, when she became the first ever Scottish Gaelic singer to win a prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk Award. Since winning the Horizon Award for best newcomer, she has won the hearts of audiences around the globe. The songs she was brought up with in the Hebrides can now be heard just as regularly on mainstream radio throughout the world as they can be at home on Gaelic radio - as was shown in her ground breaking nomination for Folk Singer of the Year 2007 at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Bringing centuries old songs from the windswept islands of the Hebrides to a modern audience, Julie remains steadfastly true to her roots in North Uist. If you haven’t heard her before, be prepared to be surprised by her music and her breathtaking vocal power. This is true Gaelic music. Come listen.

PAUL BROCK & ENDA SCAHILL A multiple All-Ireland champion born in Athlone, County Westmeath, Paul Brock pursued a solo career through the ‘60s and ‘70s by mastering the single-row, two-row, three-row, and five-row button accordIons. His collaborations with fiddle player Frankie Gavin during the ‘70s and ‘80s culminated in their 1986 Gael-Linn recording ‘Tribute to Joe Cooley’, regarded by critics and fellow musicians as one of the outstanding traditional albums of the modern era. Galway-born banjo player Enda Scahill has long established himself as one of the finest exponents of traditional Irish banjo playing and is widely recognised for his banjo teaching abilities. His solo album ‘Pick It Up’ was widely acclaimed. Enda has been described as ‘just about the strongest banjo I’ve have ever heard’ (Art Ketchin, Celtic Beat) and Irish American News in Chicago said ‘[Enda] does things on the banjo which should be impossible’. Paul and Enda’s 2006 release ‘Humdinger’ was voted ‘Irish Music Album of The Year’ by the Irish Times and ‘Instrumental Album of the Year’ in Irish American News. Paddy Maloney of the Chieftains hailed the album’s ‘incredible virtuosic playing’ and ‘Humdinger’ has been released by Compass Records in Nashville, USA.

MOZAIK First envisaged by venerable vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Andy Irvine (Planxty, Patrick Street), Mozaik is the ultimate global string band: a truly international ensemble, who can not only perform music from a wide array of cultures, but also interweave their myriad influences into an entirely new sound. Mozaik moves effortlessly from Celtic to old-time to Eastern European music, with intricate string arrangements complementing Andy and Bruce’s vocals. The line-up - Andy Irvine, Donal Lunny, Bruce Molsky, Nikola Parov and Rens van der Zalm - boasts musicians as versatile and eclectic as the music created between them, whose traditions and styles are distinct; yet blend beautifully to form a cohesive work of art.

STORYTELLERS ON THE STREET Le fiche bliain anuas, tá borradh agus fás tagaithe ar shean-ghairm inste scéal. Tá clú agus cáil ar na scéalta ársa agus ar an seanchas atá le fáil i nÉirinn. Le déanaí tá siad arís i mbéal an phobail, idir óg is sean, is i ngach áird is aicme. The ancient art of the Seanchaí, the storyteller of the past, has experienced a revival in the last twenty years. People of all ages and backgrounds have begun to retell stories old and new, for which Ireland is famed throughout the world. Temple Bar Trad and Aos Scéal Éireann/Storytellers Of Ireland bring this ancient art to the heart of the city as they tell our most famous mythical legends on the public streets and squares of Dublin’s Cultural Quarter. Professional actor and storyteller Jack Lynch will tell the story of King Eochaidh and The Golden Fly; Victoria Gleason will enchant with tales of Niamh, and the famous Oisín in Tír na nÓg, the land of eternal youth; Natasha Wilton will tell Fionn McCumhaill and the Scottish Giant and stories about Oonagh; and the legendary Setanta/Cuchulainn tales will be brought to life by Fra Gunn.
