Back to All Events

Backwards To Go Forwards

Islander and Arbutus Yarns Presents came together and made this documentary to take a little snapshot of a very small portion of what special things are happening in Irish folk and traditional music right now.

The artists featured here are as follows:
This is How we Fly
Cormac Begley
Saileog and Muireann Ní Cheannabháin (Muireann of Mongoose[in]famy)
Radie Peat, Cormac Mac Diarmada & Brian Flanagan of Rue
Ye Vagabonds
Slow Moving Clouds
The Bonny Men
Zoe Conway + John Mc Intyre

Interviews thoughtfully conducted by Myles O Reilly, Martin Burns and Donal Dineen.

Thank you sincerely to all of the artists who gave their time to create this, and to Arts Council Ireland Traditional Arts department for believing in the project. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
