Songs and Stories of North Clare by Eugene Lambe
Join us for our first Tea Talk of 2020 for insights into the musical heritage of North Clare as told through personal stories, experiences and songs by local musician, Eugene Lambe.
Eugene has many strings to his bow. A marine biologist by profession, he lectured in University College Galway. Following his great love for traditional Irish music and song, he also set up an uilleann pipe making workshop in the Old Schoolhouse in Fanore in 1979. He has played locally with many great musicians and produced many hours of video footage for the archives.
In 1994 he relocated to Kinvara and spent 5 years building a steel sailing cutter in his spare time. The boat ‘Fánaí’ was launched in 2003 and she successfully completed several long distance voyages in the North Atlantic including a solo transatlantic from Cabo Verde to Tobago in 2004.
Due to popular demand, we will also have sale of Burren Scots Pine trees by local forester, Bernard Carey. These trees were all sold out at our Christmas Tea Talk and there are many people who would like to buy more. Prices range from €2 to €5 and part of the proceeds will go to the Burrenbeo Trust.
The talk will start at the usual time of 8.30pm at Tubber hall but the kettle will be on at 8pm so you can grab a cuppa first.
Tubber Hall can be found on google maps here.
Talks are open to all, free to Burrenbeo Trust members and a suggested donation of €5 for non-members. More information on how to become a Burrenbeo Trust member can be found here: https://burrenbeo.com/support-us/become-a-member/
