This collaborative initiative between fine art photographer Kate Nolan, Louth-based fiddler Gerry O’Connor and Droichead Arts Centre was initiated at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann 2018. Musicians and singers who frequent Fleadhanna are the subject matter, curated by both Gerry and Kate, while Kate photographed in a purpose built studio in Droichead, and in the halls, bars and streets of Drogheda. The return of Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann to Drogheda in 2019 will see the fruits of this labour, as the printed images will be exhibited at Droichead Arts Centre for the occasion. The title of the exhibition is a reference to the much-neglected film format and also to the traditional tune type in 12/8 time, harking back to times gone by.

Supported by Louth Arts Office and Create Louth.
