Jenny Put the kettle on: Get to know your Leitrim  musicians and artists

Conversation and Music

Edwina Guckian, with the support of the Arts Council of Ireland, will produce six public interviews with traditional Irish music artists across Leitrim.

The series of public interviews will be informal chats and tunes with traditional gems of Leitrim in conversation with host, Vincent Woods.
Vincent will be interviewing several musicians, singers and dancers from Leitrim and surrounding areas that have had a valuable impact on the traditional arts in the locality.

“It’s an idea I’ve had in my head for a long time now and I’m thrilled it’s finally happening," says producer Edwina.
As the name suggests, it will be a casual event of chats, tunes and tea in a location that is significant to the guest musicians. Each talk will be done so acoustically with a maximum of 40 tickets available per event.
