Kilkenny Castle

The Countess of Ormond’s Galliard: Music, Kilkenny and the Sixteenth Century

Online

Presented by Dr Siobhán Armstrong, Ireland’s foremost expert on sixteenth-century Irish music, this engaging, illustrated talk will enable you to explore the sound world of Kilkenny in the late 1500s, when the Tudors held sway over most of Ireland. Hear some of the oldest surviving traditional Irish music, and discover the rarely heard songs and dances that would have entertained Sir Thomas ‘Black Tom’ Butler, the 10th earl, and his cousin, the English queen, Elizabeth 1st.
