Cathal McConnellBhí cuid mhór ceoil agus cuideachta le linn na Féile chomh maith le ceardlanna agus ranganna. Workshops with top practitioners were held by stars such as Gearóidín Neidí Frainc from Rann na Feirste who taught aspects of sean-nós singing. I measc na gceoltóirí eile a bhí i láthair bhí maistir na feadóige moiré Cathal McConnell.


Listen to Cathal, recorded live for BLAS with the tune “To the well for Water”.
