Why I Play

Why I Play
We caught up with seven of Ireland's leading musicians to find out more about what playing a musical instrument means to them.

Our #WhyIPlay series features jazz pianist Greg Felton, fiddle player Doireann Ní Ghlacáin, trumpeter Niall O’Sullivan, double bassist Malachy Robinson, flautist Catriona Ryan, songwriter/guitarist Ailbhe Reddy and concertina player Jack Talty.

We'll be launching a new video every day for 7 days from 30th September. Watch the full series as it's released right here, or follow it on our social media platforms... then get online and share what playing an instrument means to you with the hashtag #WhyIPlay!
