Date Posted: September 24, 2018

A new documentary series called Cosáin Cheoil (Musical Paths) demonstrates the interaction between modern and contemporary musical styles in Irish and Scottish traditional music over the past half a century.

Cosáin Cheoil is an Irish/Scottish co-production between Dearcán Media, Magamedia (Ireland) and MacTV (Scotland) with funding by Northern Ireland Screen’s Irish Language Broadcast Fund, RTE and MG ALBA.

Cosáin Cheoil features contributions from musical giants like Donal Lunny, Phil Cunningham and Máirtín O’Connor, as well as interviews with many other Irish and Scottish performers, broadcasters and academics, alongside a comprehensive collection of illustrative archive material.

Younger musicians like Aidan O’ Rourke, Eoghan Neff and Úna Monaghan, and groups like Talisk and Moxie are now at the forefront of change and innovation – it begs the question, where will these musical paths take us to in the future?

Cosáin Cheoil will broadcast weekly for 6 weeks, with the first episode broadcasting on Friday 28th September at 8.30pm on RTE1.


Cosáin Cheoil, Dé hAoine 28ú Meán Fómhair ag 8.30i.n. ar RTÉ 1.

Is sraith faisnéise nua í Cosáin Cheoil (Musical Paths) ina bpléifear an siar-is-aniar a tharla idir an traidisiún agus an nuálaíocht i gceol traidisiúnta na hÉireann agus na hAlban le leathchéad bliain anuas.

Is chomhléiriú é Cosáin Cheoil idir Dearcán Media, Magamedia (Éire) agus MacTV (Albain).  Tá sé maoinithe ag Ciste Craoltóireachta Gaeilge Scáileáin Thuaisceart Éireann, RTÉ agus MG ALBA.

I measc na gceoltoirí faoi chaibidil sa chláir atá ag plé na hathruithe seo tá Donal Lunny, Phil Cunningham agus Máirtín O’Connor. Chomh maith le hagallaimh, beidh bailiúcháin de chartlann cheoil den chéad scoth sna cláracha seo, maraon le ceol beo léiritheach ó togh na gceoltoirí de chuid na hÉireann agus na hAlban.

Lena leithéad de cheoltoirí úra ar nós Aidan O’Rourke, Eoghan Neff agus Úna Monaghan agus grúpaí ar nós Talisk agus Moxie ag cur a stampaí féin ar an cheol traidisiúnta – cá bhfios céard atá i ndán don cheol traidisiúnta sa todhchaí?

Beidh Cosáin Cheoil ar siúl ar feadh sé seachtaine, leis an chéad clár á craoladh ar RTÉ 1 ar an Aoine, 28ú Meán Fómhair ag 8.30i.n.
