T with the Maggies One of the most inspirational and heartening collaborations in traditional Irish music was the birth of T with the Maggies. Triona, Maighread, Mairead and Moya, all come from the same corner of Co. Donegal (with Gaelic as their first language) and all have illustrious career histories. Their formation was the result of an evocative performance in 2007 to celebrate the life and music of Micheal O’Domhnaill, (brother of Triona and Maighread) who, with Skara Brae and the Bothy Band were a pioneering force in Irish music. Each of these singers brings a unique and varied interpretation of their musical heritage and the end result is one of the finest amalgamations of Irish female vocals – true Celtic women!

Most Dublin City Council staff are located in the relatively new and controversial Civic Offices, built from 1979 on the site of a national monument, the Viking city foundations on Wood Quay.

Venue

St. Patrick’s Cathedral St. Patrick’s Cathedral is the National Cathedral of the Church of Ireland. From the simple beginnings of a small wooden church built where St. Patrick was purportedly baptised and converted to Christianity, it now hosts many national religious commemorations. In 1191 John Comyn raised the ancient church to the status of cathedral and, since the 1530’s the choral tradition of Anglican worship was established and St Patrick’s is the only remaining cathedral church in Ireland with a daily pattern of sung services. How fitting then, that this magnificent cathedral, at the heart of Ireland’s history and culture for over 800 years, will serve as venue for superb concerts throughout TradFest 2013.

Tickets: Restricted view seating apply in certain seatings of the church. Pillars may restrict your view during the performance. No refunds will be made. Seating is unallocated.

Téada with Seamus Begley, Perfect Friction, Aoife Scott and Trad for Trócaire winner Truancy Téada, now firmly established as one of Irish music’s leading exponents on the international world music stage, continues to be driven by a fascination with the timeless, expressive force of traditional tunes inherited from previous generations of musicians. Aoife Scott moved to the west coast of Ireland several years ago and her passion for the native Irish language spoken there is reflected in her choice of songs. She possesses a voice that reflects the wild western landscape: fragile one minute and forceful the next. After many years collaborating at festivals across Ireland, Truancy was formed in 2011. The players were drawn together by a mutual passion for composition, in particular the development of unique rhythmic and harmonic progressions. This passion has led to the band solely playing self composed music. Accordion player and singer Séamus Begley is one of the most popular Irish traditional musicians, an eager storyteller known for his sharp wit and famous for pumping out tune after tune at all night sessions.Perfect Friction is a group of young musicians who were formed through playing sessions in Wicklow town. The band features seven trad musicians, most of whom are classically trained, and a world-class vocalist in the person of Rebecca Winkworth.

Farcry Productions presents

Othered Voices Othered voices is a two day programme of events acknowledging relevant emerging narratives in music performance. Crossover poetry and rap merges with new composition and breakthrough performance culture to give us a picture of a discontented sub-section of National identity. What speaks, what portrays, and what manifests the voice of the rural-urban class. Who speaks and who sings the protest song for the out of work or redundant bank worker? Where are the emerging anthems of challenge? Who sings the melody of discontent? Who writes the ballad of austerity and meagre times. Othered voices is an authentic and original event to give a platform to prominent contributors who have remained outsiders and excluded from mainstream cultural practice. In recognition of the outstanding contribution made to Irish society by the late Mr Hugh O’Regan.

Date: 22nd January 2013 23rd January 2013 Time: 12-2pm, 8pm (door 7.30pm) Venue: Irish Stock Exchange Admission: â‚Ź6 Full View Seating
