Performace by Doimnic Mac Giolla Bhríd
Friday, September 12, 2014
Doimnic Mac Giolla Bhríde is a native Irish speaker from Donegal and a talented sean-nós singer and piper. Last Friday, he visited the Irish Studies Department to share his music with the Irish language students of Villanova and to give them some insight into life in Ireland. Doimnic began with a performance on the uileann (elbow) pipes and then sang for the group. Together, Doimnic and the students translated the lyrics of "An Cailín Álainn" (The Beautiful Girl) and the humorously ill-fated song "An Cailín Rua" (The Red-haired Girl) and the students learned to sing them in the traditional style.
