Weekly singing session for traditional songs. Songs are (mainly) unaccompanied and songs in all languages/from all cultures are welcome. New singers & listeners always welcome. Admission by way of a €3 per person contribution to the club. No pre-booking necessary for weekly sessions. See our website, calendar and facebook page for details. Tonight's guest is Aileen Lambert, a traditional singer from County Wexford. For over a decade she has worked with her partner Michael Fortune on a series of national song projects with traditional singers from all over the country including The Bird Song Project; Man, Woman + Child; The 1916 Song Project; and Songs for Our Children. She also works in County Wexford, conducting traditional song projects in villages, unearthing and sharing locally penned songs of people and place. Her most recent endeavour involves the production of a songbook and double CD featuring over 30 local singers entitled ‘By Land and Sea’ from the village of Blackwater. She has also been working in school settings for almost fifteen years bringing songs to thousands of children throughout the southeast who might not otherwise have experienced traditional song and singing. She spent a month collecting and researching songs on the Cape Shore in Newfoundland earlier this year and recently produced her first album ‘The Wexford Lovers – Songs of Wexford and Newfoundland’. She is also mammy to three little singers who have built up their own repertoire and following. Club meets at 9:00pm sharp. The Teacher's Club, Parnell Square. Entrance fee of €3.00, and all visitors and singers are welcome to join us. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the singing.
