About ‘Our Dear Dark Mountain with the Sky Over it’

The release of the ‘Our Dear Dark Mountain with the Sky Over it’ recording in 2014 marked a significant first step in illuminating the musical traditions of the Sliabh Beagh region of counties Monaghan / Fermanagh. Returning repertoire retrieved from various archival sources to the region’s musical fraternity, the importance and sense of renewal emanating from the project was such, that it was honoured with a TG4 Gradam Ceoil for Musical Collaboration (Gradam Comharcheoil) in 2016. This website seeks to provide some overview information regarding the music of the region.
