Bob Gallagher/ITSC are delighted to share that our documentary, It’s Fine Thing to Sing: Songs and singers of the Inishowen Peninsula will screen in Centre Culturel Irlandais, Paris as part of the their St Patrick’s Day celebration.

A special Gaulin/ITSC Singing Session will also take place featuring Grace Toland as guest singer on Thursday 14 March 2024 in Centre Culturel Irlandais, Paris.

When singers Ian Lynch (Lankum), Ye Vagabonds and The Henry Girls are invited by Inishowen Traditional Singers’ Circle to create their own interpretations of songs from the Inishowen Song Project, the audience is invited into a vast collection of local songs, documented over 40 years from within the community itself.

Framed within the stunning landscape of the area, these new performances, atmospheric archival recordings and accompanying interviews with key community figures demonstrate how songs pass from singer to singer, while also examining the question of why we sing.
