Irish Music NightHi! I’m Daniela Burgos and I’m going to explain what did we do in the Irish Music evening.
First of all, we arrived at the little theatre at 8 p.m. We were a lot of people, maybe 3 groups of 20 people in each one.
There were 4 musicians, playing the flute, guitar, violin and bagpipes. After they played their instruments, 3 girls started dancing an Irish dance and then they invited us to try that dance.
After that, a man played the bagpipes while we were clapping following the music. Then, the same man played the bodhran which is a type of Irish drum. After this, the 3 dancers danced a type of Irish dance which seemed a little bit like the “Claqué”.
Then, the man who played the guitar started singing a song which means a lot for them because the Irish people always sing this song in Croke Park when there is a match. After this, a little girl came and played the concertino. She played the concertino very well despite her age. Then the 3 ballerinas came again and they were teaching us another dance step by step, and we were all trying to practice this.
In my opinion, I think it was fun and very interesting because we learnt more things about the Irish culture. The part of the Irish music evening I liked the most was when we had to try the dance because it was so difficult and at the same time so funny.
