Music: Concert – Jacquelyn Hynes

11th December 2020, 12am

Today we are delighted to bring you the next concert in our film series “The ICC Seisiúns’, featuring the gifted singer and multi-instrumentalist Jacquelyn Hynes.

In the run up to Christmas, Jacquelyn performs for you an exquisite seasonal and nostalgic concert, in which she unashamedly rediscovers and sings lost songs of old Irish days gone by.

As many of you will know, Jacquelyn is a breath-taking flute and whistle player and she is one of our music tutors here at the ICC, teaching flute and whistle.

Jacquelyn Hynes  has a Masters degree in Irish Traditional Music from the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance at the University of Limerick. And she is also Senior Lecturer in Folk at Leeds Conservatoire.

As a soloist, she has played support for some of Ireland’s leading musicians including Martin Hayes, Michael McGoldrick and Lunasa, all at the Irish Cultural Centre.

She has also performed with Donal Lunny in concert, and for President Mary Macaleese, at the House of Lords, QEH, The Barbican and across the globe from India and Morocco to Norway and South America.
