Neansaí Ní Choisdealbha (flute) - Tunes in the Church Concert 2019
Neansaí Ní Choisdealbha (flute) - Born and raised in Cor na Rón, Indreabhán, Co. Galway, Neansaí learned her music at home on the hearth from her father, Michael Mheáirt Ó Coisdealbha and other local musicians, including the Lewis family and Meaití Jó Shéamais Ó Fátharta. She learned much of her music, also, by listening to recordings and radio programmes. She has played music over the years with Tommy Mellett since she moved to Doire Bhanbh in Camas. She is well-known for her work as Music Co-ordinator with RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta and as presenter of the programmes Béal Maidine on Sunday mornings and Ceol Binn ó na Beanna three nights a week. She released her first solo album, Draíocht na Feadóige, in 2014 on the Cló Iar-Chonnacht label.
Aisling Morgan (fiddle) and Paul Moran/Aneta Dortova (sean nos dancer) will also feature during the concert.
The concert includes a historic tour of the church during the interval!

The signature characteristic of “Tunes in the Church” concerts is an acoustic, authentic, personal and interactive representation of Irish music, song and dance. Interactive involvement between the audience and the performers is central to the experience. Relaxed, natural, conversational communication during the concerts lowers the typical barrier between the ‘audience’ and ‘performer’, thereby making each concert unique, fresh, and singularly authentic. Further, by challenging the concept that the home of Irish music is a pub setting, this concert series provides an exceptionally respectful but family friendly setting for the listener and creates a platform upon which leading exponents of traditional music can showcase their fine talents.
