Sliabh Luachra to have its first Traditional Musician in Residence

Eoin O’Sullivan, fiddle player and festival organiser has been appointed as the Sliabh Luachra Musician in Residence in a new collaborative traditional music project between the Arts Offices of Cork, Kerry and Limerick, the Irish Traditional Music Archive.

The residency has been made possible through the Arts Council’s Invitation to Collaboration Scheme which supports ambitious and regional collaborations spearheaded by local authorities.

The Sliabh Luachra region, which borders the three counties, has a rich heritage in music, song and dance and has a unique and renowned traditional music performance style. The transmission and practice of this tradition in the Sliabh Luachra region is vulnerable and this residency aims to support the musicians and organisations already working locally to preserve and promote the music of their areas.

Over the coming year Eoin O’Sullivan will be working with children in schools in the Sliabh Luachra area, festivals, music, singing and set dance groups, musicians and music teachers to promote awareness of the region’s vast musical heritage. 

The residency will be an important resource supporting traditional Irish music development, engagement with communities and demonstrates a strong commitment to support the arts in rural Ireland.
