Turas Scoile – An Online Traditional Song Workshop for Children with Aileen Lambert

  • Performance

Traditional singer Aileen Lambert has a lovely song in the English and Irish lanugages to share with you!

This newly composed song in the traditional style was written by Máire Ní Chróinín and describes a Turas Scoile (School Tour) with a difference – turned into sea creatures by Teacher’s magic wand you go on an underwater tour! 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 by her 10 year old daughter, Nellie.

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, Galway2020 and the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance.

This event will be available on Meath County Council’s YouTube Channel from 9.00 am on Friday 12th June until midnight on Sunday, 14th of June 2020.  More details via the links below.
