\r\nTraditional sean n's singing "represents the heart and soul of Irish-speaking people", as told by Bridget Fitzgerald. \r\n\r\n
\r\nBridget was born and raised in a small village in the region of Connemara, the Irish-speaking area in county Galway, Ireland. It is from this region that her singing style of sean n's, or old-style Irish singing, originates. \r\n\r\n
\r\nAlthough this traditional style of singing is generally melodically and rhythmically complex, subtleties vary by region, and it is highly individualistic. Singers generally sing unaccompanied, and lyrics are sung either in Irish Gaelic or in English in the sean n's style. Because Irish was the primary language in Fitzgerald's home when she was growing up, 50 percent of her repertoire is sung in Irish. Like many others in her village, she immigrated to the United States in 1964 as a young woman. She has been singing all her life and teaching and performing for more than 30 years.\r\n\r\n
\r\nA founding member of Cherish the Ladies, Bridget has taught sean-n's singing and Irish (Gaelic) at CCE Boston Music School and music camps throughout North America including the Augusta Heritage Center, The Swannanoa Gathering, Pinewoods Camp, and The Irish Arts Week. She has been a National Endowment for the Arts/Folk Arts Master Teacher. Bridget has an incorrigible interest in many types of singing, not least of which, American traditional singing, permeates her beautifully unique style and repertoire.\r\n
