The Way Traditional Music Was Meant to be Heard
Irish music played traditionally is more than just a folk genre. It’s a very skillful and artful music that is best appreciated up close and personal. Most people have listened to live Irish music in places that it’s most commonly played – pubs and festivals – where real listening is a challenge. For our pleasure and yours, we want to hear traditional Irish music in the most intimate of settings possible – in our homes – where every note, every instrument and every melody or song is savored personally. In fact, one might say that house concerts are the highest form of musical experience short of playing the music ourselves. These concerts offer a front seat view into the musical lives of the artists and provide an ideal opportunity to show respect for their exceptional talents. We hope you will join us as we present these concerts as a tribute to the musicians and their music and with the gratitude that both deserve.
We have streamed live a number of our house concerts and instructor concerts at the O’Flaherty Irish Music Retreat that are available for viewing for a small fee. Go to CONCERTS for a listing and learn how you can see and hear some wonderful musical performances by some great players.
