Rachel Ní Fhaolain, traditional singer, researcher and educator will curate and present The Courthouse Traditional Sessions, an online participatory programme of traditional song and story telling with special guests and will engage and connect with the whole community including Men's Shed/ KARE /Active Retirement /ICA/ Local Schools/CE Scheme Participants via Zoom and will also screen live on YouTube to encourage wider community participation.
The project will have a strong emphasis on highlighting, promoting and archiving through recording, traditional song and stories from the elder to the younger members of the community. Stories of current times will also be documented so that in the future, stories will reflect this time of isolation, uncertainty and loneliness. These sessions will capture a moment in time that has paused the world and changed daily life as we knew it.
The project will consist of five sessions with one session every 5/6 weeks beginning in June and when Covid restrictions are lifted, a live session will be scheduled in the Courthouse to allow all virtual contributors and audiences to come together and celebrate this unique event.
