The 1916 Song Project is a national research and performance project devised and produced by Michael Fortune and Aileen Lambert for the 2016 Commemoration Programme and features some of the country's most respected traditional singers and songwriters.
This will be Ireland’s premier traditional song event for the 2016 Commemorations and through the vision of Lambert and Fortune, combined with the skills of the singers involved, the project will launch a new body of songs into the traditional song repertoire for decades and centuries to come. The project includes singers from, and will tour to, places where there was significant activity in Easter 1916.
The singers taking part in the project are:
Paul O’Reilly (Wexford), Rosie Ní Ghallóglaigh (Meath), Sandra Joyce (Galway), John Tunney (Clare/Galway), Jerry O’Reilly (Dublin), Fergus Russell (Dublin), Paddy Berry (Wexford), Aileen Lambert (Wexford), Larry Joy (Tipperary)
