Descendants of 1916 Sought for Traditional Music Project

The newly formed ensemble will be brought together for the first time ever, to arrange a collection of music from their own existing repertoire as well as well researching tunes and songs from the 1916 period and perform them at series of concerts will take place throughout 2016 in venues throughout the country.


Music, song and dance were central in the lives of those involved in the Rising and there is an abundance of accounts detailing songs and music which the men and women sang and played during this period. From Fingal, we hear how the volunteers had a singing session to while away the time before the attack on Ashbourne RIC Barracks in Co. Meath, while we can get insights into life in Frongoch jail through the self-penned songs of Seán Etchingham. His fellow Wexfordman, John Coady of Enniscorthy even had his bagpipes sent to Frongoch so he could lead his fellow prisoners on marches in the Welsh jail. The accounts are endless and they are aware of many more untold stories and connections out there.
