Aileen delivers workshops in traditional irish singing. During her visits, children are introduced to a broad range of traditional Irish songs - love songs, local songs, songs of war and songs of complete nonsense! The children discuss the lyrics, stories, background and social history related to the various songs, learn a couple of songs in each session and have great fun in the process. A number of the songs have accompanying actions and are guaranteed to get everyone moving and singing at the top of their voices. Aileen has a great range of songs suitable for all ages from Infants to Sixth Class. Lyrics and audio recordings are provided as a classroom resource for teachers to use following the visit/between visits. A memorable and enjoyable experience celebrating our traditional song heritage.

Testimonials

  • "Aileen did 5 or 6 visits in total and the children were absolutely captivated with her."
  • "The children learned to sing traditional songs. The project was part of the work we are doing to celebrate the opening of the Waterford Greenway. We also worked with Michael Fortune on this and the whole project was launched on 16th June. The children sang their songs for invited guests as part of Waterford City & County Council's Stop, Look & Listen project. It was a wonderful success. I would highly recommend Aileen Lambert."
