An Afternoon of Musical Stories Inspired by Elizabeth Cronin

Elizabeth (Bess) Cronin is one of the most important historical figures in Irish traditional music.  Her songs and style of singing have had a profound influence on generations of Irish singers.  Although she spent her entire life in the Gaeltacht area of Baile Bhuirne on the Cork/Kerry border, her notoriety spread far and wide from the late 1940s onwards when songs recorded by Seamus Ennis were played on the BBC series As I Roved Out. Subsequent recordings by the renowned American ethnomusicologist, Alan Lomax,  cemented her reputation.

Donal Dineen will explore her life and legacy in the company of her granddaughter and renowned singer Eilish Ní Thuama, plus special guest sean–nós singer Eithne Ní Chatháin.
