Fionnuala Maxwell is a singer and teacher who has made it her mission to promote and recover Leitrim’s musical heritage.
She finds the lyrics or music of often forgotten Leitrim songs in historical manuscripts or publications, and performs her own interpretations of them.
In this video she takes us through a history of traditional signing in Leitrim and sings verses from both well known and forgotten songs. Connecting Through Heritage is an initiative of the Leitrim County Council Heritage Office and is part-funded by the Heritage Council.
