  • Ceoltóirí Chualann (pronounced [ˈcoːlˠt̪ˠoːɾʲiː ˈxuəlˠən̪ˠ]) was an Irish traditional band, led by Seán Ó Riada, which included many of the founding members of The Chieftains. Ceoltóirí is the Irish word for musicians, and Cualann is the name of an area just outside Dublin where Ó Riada lived. Ó Riada's work with Ceoltóirí Chualann is credited with revitalizing the use of the bodhrán as a percussion instrument in Celtic music. In 1960 Ó Riada was looking for musicians to perform music for the play "The Song of the Anvil" by Bryan MacMahon. Paddy Moloney, at the age of 20, was called to participate in the project, along with his friend Sean Potts on tin whistle, Sonny Brogan on accordion and John Kelly on fiddle. They rehearsed weekly in Ó Riada's house in Galloping Green, on the outskirts of Dublin. Following its success, Ó Riada had the idea of forming Ceoltóirí Chualann, a band to play traditional Irish songs with accompaniment and traditional dance tunes and slow airs, arranged with instruments: harpsichord, bodhran, piano, fiddle, accordions, flute, pipes and whistles. The idea of actually arranging folk music, or dance music, had been done on at least one or two 78rpm recordings in the past, but they were folk tunes done in a classical way, highly orchestrated.Another aim was to revitalize the work of blind harpist and composer Turlough O'Carolan. The band was launched during the Dublin Theatre Festival in September 1960, at the Shelbourne Hotel, at an event called Reacaireacht an Riadaigh (Ó Riada's Recital). Included in the program were traditional singers, writer Seán Ó Ríordáin and poet Seán Ó Tuama. In March of the following year Ó Riada recorded the first of a series of radio programmes for which he retained the name Reacaireacht an Riadaigh, and included music played by Ceoltóirí Chualann. Soon after the band's formation, Peadar Mercier and Seán Keane joined. Ceoltóirí Chualann continued to play until 1969. During that year they recorded two albums, Ó Riada and Ó Riada Sa Gaiety. The latter of those two albums was not released until after 1971, when Seán Ó Riada died. (en)
  • Ceoltóirí Chualann ou Ceoltóirí Cualann est un groupe de musique irlandaise traditionnelle, dirigé par Seán Ó Riada, qui a compté nombre des membres fondateurs de The Chieftains. Ceoltóirí est un mot irlandais qui signifie 'musiciens' et Cualann est un toponyme désignant une banlieue de Dublin où Ó Riada vivait. Les travaux de ce dernier avec le groupe Ceoltóirí Chualann sont reconnus pour avoir remis au goût du jour l'usage du bodhrán comme instrument de percussion dans la musique celtique. (fr)

  • Nel 1960, Ó Riada ricercava dei musicisti per interpretare la musica scritta per la pièce The Song of the Anvil di Bryan MacMahon. Contattò Paddy Moloney, allora ventenne ed i suoi amici: Seán Potts (tin whistle), Sonny Brogan (accordéon) e John Kelly (irish flute). Essi iniziano a provare ogni settimana a casa di Ó Riada, a Galloping Green, un sobborgo di Dublino Visto il buon esito del progetto, Ó Riada decide di formare i ''Ceoltóirí Chualann'', un gruppo che avrebbe interpretato canzoni tradizionali irlandesi, arie di danza tradizionale e ballate, arrangiate per clavicembalo, bodhrán, piano, fiddle, accordéon, irish flute, uilleann pipes e tin whistle. In parallèlo Ó Riada persegue ugualmente l'obiettivo di rivitalizzare l'opera dell'arpista cieco e compositore Turlough O'Carolan. Nel marzo dell'anno successivo, Ó Riada registra una serie di trasmissioni radiofoniche che chiama Reacaireacht an Riadaigh, in cui sono inclusi brani eseguiti dai Ceoltóirí Chualann Poco tempo dopo la formazione, Peadar Mercier e Seán Keanesi si uniscono al gruppo. I Ceoltóirí Chualann proseguiranno la propria attività fino al 1969, anno in cui vengono effettuate due registrazioni: Ó Ó Riada e Ó Riada Sa Gaiety. Quest'ultimo non verrà pubblicato che dopo il 1971, vale a dire, dopo la morte di Seán Ó Riada. (it)
