Traditional singer Aileen Lambert has a lovely old song to share with you about a strange wedding which took place between a frog and a mouse! Aileen’s version is based on a recording of P Joe Hayes’ Feakle, which is featured in the Carroll Mackenzie Collection. 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 is accompanied here by her daughter Nellie (age 10).
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.
