As part of the Cruinniú na nÓg 2023 programme in Co. Wexford John Ó Faoláin from Traditional Archive Channel and Rachel Uí Fhaoláin from Ceol Mo Chroí delivered a series of ‘Seomra Traidisiúnta’ workshops for children and young people in Gorey School of Art. The workshops focused on creative expression through traditional music, song, language, sean nós dance, art & film. This new work was centred around the children’s and young people’s response to learning and engaging with a newly composed suantraí (lullaby) in the Irish language called ‘Glór Naomh Bríde’ (The voice of St. Brigid). With hands-on learning with professional filming equipment, the workshop participants took a leading role and the talented group documented the process.
