News from Fleadh Ceoil na hÉireann 2012 in Cavan.

I won the newly composed dance tune with my "spontaneous" Clifden Fleadh composition called "Just like that" after the Tommy Cooper catch-phrase. Thanks to my good friend Bernie Geraghty for her "never give in" attitude. I hope to have the recording live on the website within the next few days. 

My CD launch in the Cavan Crystal Hotel was a lovely, relaxing evening. Thanks to my friends Hazlett Keers and Richie Lyons for very sympathetic and competent backing on the mandola and bodhrán. Siobháin introductory comments and observations were eloquent and erudite - as we all knew they would be. Thanks you again, Siobháin.

Press release from Siobháin

Nóirín Uí Shúilleabháin is one of the finest exponents of whistle playing in the world of traditional Irish music. Her playing is characterised by its effortless flow, clarity and musicality, which, to the discerning ear, is based on an underlying mastery of technique, command and control of her instrument, the whistle. So many young musicians start their musical journey by ‘learning the whistle’, an instrument which is potentially one of the most ‘simply complex’ of instruments – Nóirín’s musicianship illustrates the full potential of this most ‘intimate’ of traditional instruments. Nóirín Uí Shúilleabháin is also known nationally for her detailed and dedicated commitment to teaching Irish traditional music at all levels. She has been a highly respected senior tutor at Scoil Éigse for many years, a tutor on CCE’s TTCT Teachers Course and has also contributed very significantly to the SCT exams initiative.
