Gan Ainm – Kiss My Arts: Episode 233
Today’s guests for our “Kiss My Arts” show are Gan Ainm, a local young trad band from South Leitrim and North Roscommon, who join Mary Blake to have a chat about how they got into music, the last two years together and even play a few tunes.
Gan Ainm are Katie Moreau (flute & tinwhistle), Louise Gaffney (concertina & tinwhistle), Tara Noone (concertina & vocals) and Fiachra Guihen (guitar & harp).
All of these young musicians started playing as children with the Pádraig Sweeney School of Traditional Irish Music and are well established on the local trad music scene having played at numerous venues around the county over the last two years.
Earlier this year, the band entered and won the North West Talent Contest and they are now promoting their debut album ‘Across Lands’ recorded with the help of Paul Gurney in Real World Studios in Longford.
