I’ve put up some photos & a few comments on the Music Under the Mountains festival from the weekend just gone: http://short.ie/dpzgm3
Alyth McCormack, from the Isle of Lewis, led the Sunday afternoon Music Under the Mountains’ singing session in Tutty’s (seated beside Kevin Conneff, with whom she has performed with many times in the Chieftains). A superb communicator & story teller, as well as a delicate, honest & moving singer, Alyth held the room still with her voice while both talking and singing.
Had a fantastic weekend in Hollywood, Co Wicklow at the Music Under The Mountains festival (www.musicunderthemountains.blogspot.com). Emer Mayock, Donal Siggins, Cormac Breathnach on Friday night; Steve Larkin, Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh & Billy MagFhlionn on Saturday afternoon; Arc, Frankie Lane & Buille on Saturday night; Alyth McCormack on Sunday morning; and Michelle O’Brien, Peter Brown, and Paul Meehan last night. Photos to follow.
