An Irish Music Trilogy: 3Triúr (In Search of Musical Form) (2012)

  • Documentary, Music, Culture
  • 55min

The first in Dónal Ó Céilleachair’s Irish Music Trilogy investigates the collaborative process between three of Ireland’s most distinguished traditional musicians: composer Peadar Ó Riada plays concertina and other instruments alongside fiddlers Martin Hayes & Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh. Ó Céilleachair is allowed extensive access to the intimate imaginative process of the three men who gather in the West Cork Gaeltacht to swap thoughts and tunes and stories in a swirling maelstrom of creativity while forging close personal bonds. Over three years the musicians develop a sublime musical complementarity which culminates in a concert on the stage of the Dublin’s Abbey Theatre and a series of critically acclaimed albums.
