Éamonn Cagney and Niwel Tsumbu perform with Míchéal Ó Súilleabháin, Mel Mercier, Sona Jobarteh and Tunde Jegede, Limerick 2009.
I had the great honour to work with legendary composer, pianist and educator Míchéal Ó Súillebháin (R.I.P.) in 2009. We had worked together in 2008 for concerts in Belgium for the European year of Intercultural Dialogue, and then for a series of cultural events in Limerick. Míchéal invited me to perform and teach numerous times in The Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, at the University of Limerick, a place where he was Chair of department and a founding member. I had seen Míchéal many times on TV when I was younger, and was very excited to have an opportunity to meet and work with him.
Thanks Marion for the live video.
