Share your memories of Fleadh 1970

  1. This was my first Munster Fleadh and I was performing in the piano competition. I was adjudicated by Seamus Connolly who gave me wonderful advice that influenced me greatly on the development of my style. He was the closest thing to a teacher that I had in terms of traditional music. 1970 was my first time playing in competition. My first fleadh was in Ennis and my adjudicator there was Leo Rowsome, who also gave me great advice. Unfortunately he died the following September but I have never forgotten meeting him.
    This is a great resource.
    Le meas, Geraldine Cotter, Ennis
