The traditional music group ‘Sin A Bhfuil,’ most of whose members hail from Offaly, and some from Laois, will be among the cream of young Irish traditional musical and singing talent who will take to the National Concert Hall stage on Sunday April 22 for the Siansa Gael Linn 2018 final.
Siansa uniquely showcases Irish music and Irish song by young musicians, all through the medium of Irish, and this is the climax of the competition which is organised annually by Gael Linn, with support from Irish Music Magazine and RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta. Year after year, the competition inspires and attracts new groups of the highest calibre.
The members of ‘Sin A Bhfuil’, Sorcha Nic Bheinéid, Diarmaid Ó Brádaigh, Eimear Ní Mhurchú, Darragh Ó Riain, Alain Ó Cearúil, Nollaig Mac an Ghaill, Róisín Ní Mhurchú and Sadhbh Ní Riain, will perform in the National Concert Hall alongside seven other groups from counties Clare, Fermanagh, Galway, Laois, Limerick, Wicklow and Wexford.
On the night, each group will play their own ten to twelve minute selection of traditional music, arranged a new and innovative way, and must include an Irish song in their repertoire.
The concert will be broadcast live from the National Concert Hall on RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta on Sunday, April 22, at 7.30pm and will be compered by the station’s popular presenter, Áine Hensey.
