Community news: Newmarket

Bruach na Carraige, Rockchapel, will hold a special Christmas Seisiún on Friday, January 4, at 8pm.

Ceoltóirí Sliabh Luachra's latest DVD, 'Music from the Manuscripts', will be available on the night.

This DVD contains some of Ireland's oldest music from our most famous collectors, including local manuscripts from Dave Dan Curtin from Rockchapel; from his father, Dan Curtin, whose manuscripts go back to before 1850 and contain an interestingly older layer of Sliabh Luachra music that had vanished from the tradition.

It also contains music from the manuscripts of Dave Leahy from Mountcollins, who passed away in 1907.
