Peter Laban Posted October 26, 2022 Share Posted October 26, 2022 (edited) Last night I was at a modern dance performance, MÁM by Teac Damsa. It's a production completely devised, created and produced in the Corca Dhuinhne Gaeltacht. Twelve international contemporary dancers, seven musicians from the Berlin based Stargaze collective and concertina player Cormac Begley. The performance is shaped around the musical heritage of Corca Duibhne, personified by Cormac Begley. Wonderful, intense performance of 80 minutes (without break). With a minutes long standing ovation at the end. They're touring Ireland for another month. At the venue some of Begley's recordings were available, including his latest, all Bass concertina album 'B'. I had heard it was coming but hadn't come across it yet. It desrves a mention here as it is probably the first all bass concertina album. Like (the collector's version) of his earlier recording, the cover is shaped like the concertina, inside more images of the inside of the instrument. Recommended. If you're into that sort of thing, ofcourse. Edited October 26, 2022 by Peter Laban 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
