Máirtín de Cógáin Project Gear
The Máirtín de Cógáin Project’s album From Cork with Love is filled with songs, stories and tunes about the Cork of my youth. These always bring me back home to the Rebel County on Ireland’s south coast by recalling its many sights, like Cork City’s bustling small back streets, the pastoral boreens of the countryside, the River Lee’s romantic allure, the Coal Quay and Grand Parade’s rustic beauty, and even the majestic castles of my ancestors in Carrigaline itself – it’s all there. This DVD, an hour long music travelogue, uses these songs, stories and tunes to guide you through Cork and her many charms, and will show you my home the way I grew up knowing it. I invite you to come along and enjoy the journey, from Cork with love.This concept has made for a great production and gaining critical acclaim for it’s ground-breaking style of mixing music with travel. Working with director-cameraman Paschal Cassidy of Dublin-based Red Shoe Productions (Imeall & Ceol ar an Imeall, TG4) who has keen insight into music through his videography for over 15 years on the Fleadh Cheoil programs and Geantraí was a perfect partner for this project.Cork’s finest Folk and Traditional stars lined out to feature including John Spillane, Jimmy Crowley ‘the Voice of Cork’, Matt Cranitch and Jackie Daly, as well as Máirtín’s own father, Barry, demonstrating on how to make a proper cup of tea and giving an insight to own ancestral Cogan’s Castle. Go raibh maith agat! Thank You!This film is 60 minutes long with 3 bonus tracks on the DVD. Available in both NTSC and PAL format.
