As part of the Abair series, Ballad Tours Dublin aims to promote social history through song. Dublin has a long history and there is hardly an event as small as breakfast that hasn’t been remembered in some song or hilarious story. The tour is an interactive journey through time, space, song and rhyme chronicling the history of Irish music and Dublin City in a simple, laid back and good humoured style, lead by balladeer, mummer, and storyteller Seán Fitzgerald.ABAIR is a programme of traditional singing and storytelling events curated by Macdara Yeates, exploring the oral folk traditions of Ireland. Taken from the Irish word meaning ‘to say’ and ‘to sing’, the four-day schedule offers a broad range of intimate, unplugged performances highlighting the richness and beauty of these traditions, still preserved and practiced to the present day.
