Nell Ní Chróinín: Amhránaí TG4 2012 - Gradam Ceoil TG4

Singing here on this clip with Eoiní Ó Suilleabháin

Is ó cheantar agus ó theaghlach ceolmhar a shíolraigh an t-amhránaí óg seo ó Bhéal Átha an Ghaorthaidh i nGaeltacht Mhúscraí.

Nell Ní Chróinín: Singer of the Year

Nell Ní Chróinín is a young sean nós singer from Béal Átha an Ghaorthaidh in the Múscraí Gaeltacht of northwest Cork. Her singing is very much a product of her environment and heritage with its mix of the infectiously light hearted with more serious songs.

Born in 1990, she inherited a musical tradition from both sides. Her parents Teddy and Síle both sing although rarely in public and there is a strong legacy of accordion playing in her family, stemming from her maternal grandfather and from her aunt the late Eilín Ní Ríordáin. One of Nell's sisters plays the concertina and she has many musical cousins.

She began singing at the age of eleven and credits this early induction directly to Scéim Amhránaíochta Aisling Gheal, a project set up after the tragic death of broadcaster and sean-nós singer Diarmuidín Maidhcí Ó Súilleabháin.

The respected singer Máire Ní Chéileachair was her singing teacher on this scheme. Diarmuidín's siblings Eilís and Eoiní Maidhcí were also very influential on her singing.

Nell has appeared on many television programmes such as Geantraí, Anam an Amhrán, Amhrán is ansa liom and Cérbh í?; the latter featured her as a presenter setting out on a quest to uncover the legacy of the legendary Bess Cronin.

She has also made a number of recordings, guesting on the 2010 compilation Rogha Scoil Samhraidh Willie Clancy (singing Cath Chéim an Fhia); and on Raw Bar Collective 2011 (singing two songs -- Cá Rabhais ar Feadh an Lae Uaim? and Na Táilliúirí).

She has also recently toured with the Raw Bar Collective (Cónal Ó Gráda, Dave Sheridan and Benny McCarthy), on a Music Network tour with Mick O'Brien and Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh and with Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann in 2008.

She's gives masterclasses at the University of Limerick and sung at many festivals in Ireland, England and in Switzerland.

She is the youngest ever recipient of the TG4 Singer of the Year award and she is currently working as a primary teacher in Gaelscoil Osraí in Kilkenny.

Amhránaithe binne is ea a beirt thuismitheoirí, Tadhg agus Síle, cé gur annamh a chanann siad go poiblí. Tá traidisiún láidir an bhosca ceoil ar thaobh na máthar aici agus bhí cáil fhorleathan ar an uirlis sin ar a haintín, Eilín Ní Ríordáin, nach maireann.

Rugadh Nell sa bhliain 1990 agus bhí sí ag amhránaíocht go poiblí sular raibh an bhunscoil fágtha aici, a bhuíochas sin, deir sí, do Scéim Amhránaíochta Aisling Gheal, togra a bunaíodh mar chuid den chuimhneachán ar Dhiarmuidín Ó Súilleabháin, amhránaí agus craoltóir ón dúiche sin a bhásaigh go tubaisteach i 1991. Chuaigh amhránaíocht dheartháir agus dheirfiúr Dhiarmuidín, Eilís agus Eoiní i bhfeidhm ar Nell freisin.

Is minic í ag canadh ar chláracha teilifíse TG4, Geantraí, Anam an Amhrán, Amhrán is Ansa Liom agus Cérbh í ? (clár a chuir sí i láthair agus í ag ceiliúradh oidhreacht amhránaíochta Bhess Cronin.

Cé gur bean óg í, tá cuid mhaith taifeadadh léi eisithe freisin, ina meas Rogha Scoil Samhraidh Willie Clancy i 2010 (áit ar sheinn sí Cath Chéim an Fhia); Raw Bar Collective 2011 (áit ar sheinn sí Cá Rabhais ar Feadh an Lae Uaim? agus Na Táilliúirí). Ní fada ó thug sí turas leis an ngrúpa sin, Raw Bar Collective (Conal Ó Gráda, Dave Sheridan agus Benny McCarthy), agus rinne sí turas le Mick O'Brien agus Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh faoi choimirce an Music Network agus turas eile le Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann i 2008.

Tugann sí ceardlanna amhránaíochta go minic freisin in Ollscoil Luimnigh agus is minic í ag canadh ag féilte sa tír seo, i Sasana agus san Eilbhéis.

Is í Nell an duine is óige riamh ar bronnadh Gradam Ceoil TG4 Amhránaí na Bliana.

Is múinteoir bunscoile i nGaelscoil Osraí i gCill Chainnigh í.

Actually the song is called "An Cailin Aerach", not to be confused with "An Cailin Gaelach".

Hang on, actually, it can't be. Maybe I'm just utterly stupid, but looking up the lyrics to Cath Chéim an Fhia gave me a completely unrelated text - no "falde dalde" interlude, and what words I can identify from the singing (my level of Irish is somewhat bad) like "cuig" and "bhí" don't appear in them...
