bonn óir
Peadar Ó Riada has put out a final call for entries for the Seán Ó Riada Gold Medal competition 2017, which closes this Friday (Sept 29).
 
This year the competition is open to metal reed instruments – consairtín, bosca ceoil, mileoidean, orgán béil agus araile.
 
15 musicians will be invited to take part in the final at Rochestown Park Hotel, Cork on 2 February, 2018. The winner will receive €2500 and the prestigious Seán Ó Riada Gold Medal.
 
"We’re very excited about this year’s competition," said Peadar Ó Riada, "and the quality of entries so far is excellent ... I’ll be announcing the shortlist on my Cuireadh chun Ceoil programme on Raidió na Gaeltachta on 1 December, and we’ll be looking forward then to the final in February."
 
To enter, musicians must record 5 pieces of music and upload them to www.cuireadhchunceoil.ie
 
Ba é Cormac Begley a bhuaigh an comórtas an uair dheireanach go raibh na huirlisí seo i gceist, ceithre bliana ó shin.
 
Over the next few months Peadar will play some of the best entries on his weekly traditional music programme Cuireadh chun Ceoil on RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta (7pm, Fridays). Listeners can also register at www.cuireadhchunceoil.ie to hear the entries.
