Subhóró – Ceol ón Acadamh
74 traditional artists ‘jam’ it for charity

A compilation album of music, poetry, storytelling – and even traditional dance – has been compiled by Acadamh na hOllscolaíochta Gaeilge in An Cheathrú Rua, Conamara in aid of Our Lady’s Hospital for Sick Children, Crumlin. The artists include staff, students, course participants and friends of the Acadamh all of whom gave of their time and talents free of charge for the project. The recordings were produced mainly by musician/composer Charlie Lennon over the summer of 2009 at Stiúideo Cuan, An Spidéal, Co. Galway. The double CD set runs for almost 2.5 hours and features a total of 40 tracks from Donegal, Leitrim, Galway, Clare, Kerry and Waterford.
