Lectures

Saturday, 28.12.2013

Fife and Drum Tradition
Errigal Hostel, 4:00 PM
Aoife Granville
Free
The Flute Band: A forgotten influence on Irish Traditional Music and Culture with Dr. Aoife Granville (flute player & lecturer). While flute/fife bands are now associated mostly with Northern Ireland, they were once a common feature of the cultural life of most Irish towns and regions from the mid 19th Century. Through the Temperance Movement, political rallies and social gatherings, flute bands were often the focus of community life and influenced musical styles and repertoires in many areas of the country. This lecture will look at the development of flute bands in Donegal and all of Ireland, as well as their impact musically and otherwise in their respective regions. As well as being an accomplished traditional flute player and tutor, Aoife Granville has completed a PhD in Ethnomusicology in University College Cork. Her studies often reflected the local traditions of her home place of An Daingean, in the west Kerry Gaeltacht. AS well as the ‘fife and drum’, these include ‘The Wrenboys’. She now lectures and teaches music in UCC on a regular basis.
