Ireland and its Music

E-mail Print PDF


Ireland and its Music are inherently linked and music remains an essential part of Irish culture and is still a powerful influencing factor in the lives of Irish people. Coming from an ancient oral culture where history, religion and music were passed from one generation to another through poems, stories and songs, music transcends generations, time and distance to bind Irish people everywhere together.

This rich tradition has had an international impact with acts as diverse as the Clancy Brothers, the Chieftains, the Dubliners, Van Morrison, Sinead o Connor, the Corrs and U2 receiving worldwide acclaim. Irish Heartbeat with Dervish brings the soul of Irish Music from its origins to a worldwide audience.
