Paddy O’Brien’s memoir, The Road From Castlebarnagh Growing Up In Irish Music: A Memoir, offers a glimpse into Irish life more than half a century ago. Paddy grew up in a small thatched house without running water or electricity, at a time when the social life in the Irish countryside was centered around the hearth fire, music, and stories. In his book, Paddy takes on the role of traditional storyteller, or shanachie, offering tales of his first musical instrument, house dances, learning tunes off the radio, thatching the house with his father, ringing the pig, the boys’ National School, and the annual ritual of turf cutting. Growing up in that traditional culture built on tunes and stories instilled in Paddy a deep need for expression over technical perfection, and for music that possessed something known as the draíocht—the Gaelic word for spiritual power or soul. In his lifelong quest for the soul of Irish traditional music, Paddy was eventually fortunate to meet and learn firsthand from many legendary musicians he used to hear on the radio as a boy—including Seamus Ennis and Willie Clancy, Joe Cooley and Joe Burke, Micho Russell, Sean Ryan, John Doherty, John Kelly, Joe Ryan, and Frank Cassidy, and many others, far less famous, who nevertheless had a profound influence on the character of Irish traditional music. Paddy will read from his memoir and talk about his legendary life of music, inviting Q&A from the audience. Books, CDs and tune collections will be available for sale. More information
