Áine O’ Gorman is a songwriter based in Ballinadee, Co. Cork. She has released four singles, her latest ‘The Poor Ground’ making it onto the RTE Radio One Recommends list, receiving a huge response both on social media and radio. A multi-instrumentalist, Áine enjoys teaching both adults and children and has worked as a choral instructor in schools for many years. She believes that music should be accessible to everyone, regardless of means or ability. She has facilitated the creation of many songs in her Childrens’ workshops in a fun way.
Áine will facilitate a songwriting workshop for teenagers and no music experience is necessary – however those who play portable instruments can bring them along and together participants will work with Áine and her keyboard to brainstorm lyrical ideas, exploring songwriting techniques in the first half of the workshop and breaking into small groups in the second part to write their own songs.
