Ear to Éire: An Irish Music Journey

Senior Emma Greenough will present Ear to Éire: An Irish Music Journey, on Saturday, October 7th, at 4pm in Peterson-Kermani Performance Hall.

After studying abroad in Cork, Ireland, in spring 2017, Emma spent her summer as a St. Lawrence University fellow working with ethnomusicologist and department chair Dr. David Henderson.  She studied the Irish sean-nós singing tradition, a tradition that "adapts and survives despite everything," observes singer Lillis Ó Laoire.
