‘Colcannon’ Online Traditional Song Workshop for Children

  • Workshop

Traditional singer Aileen Lambert has a lovely song to share with you about a favourite traditional Irish dinner – Colcannon. This song is from an old person’s point of view as he remembers the happy days of his youth featuring his Mammy’s dinner and homemade butter, school days and walks in the countryside. For ease of learning Aileen breaks the song down line by line and follows it with a sing-through complete with subtitles, so the whole family can sing along. 

Aileen delivers traditional song workshops in schools with the Heritage-in-Schools Scheme and Music Generation to all ages from Junior Infants to 6th class. She is currently working along with her husband Michael Fortune on the ‘Songs for Our Children’ Project, with support from Local Authorities, Galway 2020 and the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance.
