Triple album box set which is the first publication of an important series of programmes on Irish traditional music which Sean O Riada presented on Radio Eireann in 1962. These programmes are considered by some to be one of the most important points in the modern revival of Irish traditional music, as at the time (as Thomas Kinsella wrote. he Irish musical tradition was of little or no concern (indeed, an object of contempt) to the urban majority of the Irish people.

For those who may not have noticed, RTÉ on their show "The Rolling Wave" have started re-broadcasting a landmark radio show, first transmitted in 1962 by Seán Ó Riada, called "Our Musical Heritage". This will extend over many programmes and outlines in detail many different aspects of Irish traditional music, both songs and tunes. Whilst not everyone may agree with Ó Riada’s opinion’s on certain points the series was of profound importance in the re-emergence of our music

Ní Riada is the daughter of composer Seán Ó Riada, who died when she was four. Her mother died when she was 10. She resides in Ballyvourney in the Muskerry Gaeltacht area in County Cork, with her second husband, Nicky Forde, and three daughters. She was married to Fiachra Ó hAodha for 10 months until his death in 1997 Media career. She has directed and produced several documentaries,.

Seán Ó Riada (August 1, 1931 - October 3, 1971), was a composer and bandleader, and perhaps the single most influential figure in the renaissance of traditional Irish music from the 1960s, through his participation in Ceoltóirí Chualann, his compositions, his writings and his broadcasts on the topic. Born John Reidy in Cork City, he was educated at St Finbar's College, Farranferris. He played the violin, piano and organ and studied the Greek and Latin classics at University College Cork, graduating in 1952. While at College, Ó Riada was the auditor of the UCC Philosophical Society

Seán Ó Riada was the founder of the modern school (which is to say, the authentic ancient style of playing) of Irish folk music and, equally important, a vital nationalistic voice in the orchestral music of Ireland. Best known today as a composer, he was also present at the recording of the first album by the Chieftains, and founded the folk chamber orchestra Ceoltoiri Cualann, Paddy Moloney's group before forming the Chieftains. Seán Ó Riada (or John Reidy, in English) was born in Cork, Ireland, in 1931, and attended University College, Cork

Heritage is the tenth studio album by Swedish progressive rock band Opeth. It was released on 14 September 2011 through Roadrunner Records. The album was recorded in early 2011 at Atlantis/Metronome Studios in Stockholm and produced by Mikael Åkerfeldt, engineered by Janne Hansson, and mixed by Steven Wilson. It takes on a full-fledged progressive rock sound, something the band had wanted to do for some time. It is a stark contrast to the progressive metal and death metal sounds of their past albums.

This is far from rock music, however at this time of year, as everyone with a tenuous connection to Ireland celebrates the anniversary of the death of a Christian evangelist, attention turns to Irish culture and heritage. And (here I go again on another rant) as rock music doesn’t make the grade as far as approved Irish culture is concerned, here instead is the acceptable face of Irish music. Seán Ó Riada died in 1971 shortly after his 40th birthday, his liver disease and premature ageing a result of many years’ heavy drinking.

Séan Ó Riada in Copper Sculpture. Riada was born John Reidy in Cork City. He spent his early years in Adare, Co Limerick, where his father, a Garda sergeant, was stationed. After beginning school in Adare, he later attended St Finbarr's College, Farranferris and whilst he was there he received musical education from Aloys Fleischmann (Senior). He moved to St Munchin's College in Limerick where he completed his Leaving Certificate in 1948. Mise Éire brought him national acclaim and allowed him to start a series of programmes on Irish radio called Our Musical Heritage. Riada told people that one should listen to sean-nós song either as a child would listen or as if they were songs from India.

Notes

Triple album box set which is the first publication of an important series of programmes on Irish traditional music which Sean O Riada presented on Radio Eireann in 1962. These programmes are considered by some to be one of the most important points in the modern revival of Irish traditional music, as at the time (as Thomas Kinsella wrote) “…the Irish musical tradition was of little or no concern (indeed, an object of contempt) to the urban majority of the Irish people.” Not only did he raise national awareness of the music but he was instrumental in bringing together a number of players to produce traditional music in a manner that had never existed before, the “Ceoltóiri Chualann”. Directly out of this sprang the Chieftains and eventually the whole modern idea of traditional groups.

The set of three LP's provide a selection of, edited and introduced by Tomas O Canainn, of the performances by sean-nos singers and traditional instrumentalists chosen to illustrate the character of the Irish musical tradition.
With accompanying 84 page book printed by The Dolmen Press.
