The Friel Sisters (K-12): Community National Bank Student Matinee Series CANCELLED
THIS MATINEE HAS BEEN CANCELLED. THE OPERA HOUSE IS WORKING WITH THE FRIELS TO RESCHEDULE THIS SHOW FOR THE NEXT SCHOOL YEAR. WE WILL REFUND ANY TICKET PURCHASES FOR THIS EVENT.
Anna, Sheila and Clare Friel are traditional musicians born in Glasgow with their family roots firmly entrenched in the Donegal Gaeltacht (Gaelic speaking region). As siblings, they achieve a close blend on fiddle, flute, and uilleann pipes interspersed with songs sung in unison, many from their family and local repertoire. Clare won the prestigious TG4/Young Musician of the Year award in 2018 from the Irish language television network. In between jigs, reels and songs, they'll talk about the history of Irish music and the instruments upon which it's played. Curriculum connections: Musical, Multi-Cultural, Historical
