Turas ceoil ar ealaín agus dúchas na tíre seo

 

Páirteach san imeacht seo beidh Lasairfhíona Ní Chonaola i gcomhar le banna ceoil ó California 8-BIT Banjo. Roghnófar ceann d’amhráin cháiliúla na tíre seo le cóiriú ceoil nua-aimseartha mar chúlra fhístéip de shaothar shainiúil an dealbhóra iomráiteach de bhunadh Bhaile Átha Cliath, Albert Power RHA (1881-1945).

Bhí Albert Power ar dhuine dena dealbhóirí ab iomráití  lena linn agus chruthaigh sé mórchuid píosaí áille ealaíne, ina measc saothair bunaithe ar laochra agus scríbhneoirí na hÉireann, idir dheailbh, mascanna báis agus portráidí. Fuair sé cuireadh speisialta chun masc mairbh Mhíchil Uí Choileáin a dhéanamh, nuair a feallmharíodh Ó Coileáin ar an 22ú mí Lúnasa 1922. Tá  saothar Albert Power le feiceáil go sonrach ar fhoirgnimh an Rialtais i Sráid Mhuirfean agus ar fhoirgnimh eile ina chathair dhúchais, Baile Átha Cliath; tá a shaothar le feiceáil chomh maith ar fhoirgnimh a deisíodh de bharr an scrios a bhí déanta orthu le linn Chogadh na Saoirse agus an Chogadh Cathartha. 

 

Tá sé i gceist gnéithe den cheol agus den stair a thabhairt le chéile go healaíonta san imeacht seo agus muid ag déanamh comóradh ar stair agus ealaín na tíre seo ón 20ú haois.

 

A musical journey into the art and heritage of this Ireland

Aran Island singer Lasairfhíona Ní Chonaola and California band 8-Bit Banjo present an online visual music production depicting the early works of the renowned Dublin sculptor Albert Power RHA (1881-1945). The video consists of a contemporary arrangement of one of Ireland’s most iconic songs, set against the backdrop of the distinctive work of the sculptor, which complements the historical theme of the song. This event aims to artistically highlight the strong connection between aspects of the arts and music to momentous occurrences in Irish history.

 

Albert Power was one of the most celebrated sculptors of Ireland and created many wonderful pieces of art, which included death masks and portraits of Ireland’s heroes and writers. He was specially called upon to make a death mask of Michael Collins when he was assassinated on the 22nd of August 1922. Albert Power’s work can be seen on the facade of The National Concert Hall and prominently on Government Buildings, Merrion Street, Dublin. His artistic work can also be seen in the reconstruction of many of the buildings that had been damaged during the War of Independence and the tragic Irish Civil War.

 

Through music and art, this event  revists the first two turbulent decades of the 20th century in Ireland.
