Sorcha Ní Bhriain – Bl. 3
1. Abair linn faoi ‘Other Voice, Derry.’
Well Other Voices Derry was absolutely awesome. It was my first gig outside of Dingle and it was just an amazing experience all in all. The vibes were great, I met lovely people and I couldn’t of asked for a better 1st gig outside of Dingle. Other Voices celebrates everything I love about music so to be wanted to play as part of it is seriously unbelievable and amazing. I count myself really lucky .
Bhí Other Voices go hiontach. B’é mo chéad cheolchoirm lasmuigh don Daingean agus bhí an taithí ar fheabhas. Bhuail mé le daoine álainne agus bhí sé go hiontach. Déanann Other Voices céiliuradh ar na rudaí a thaithníonn liom faoin gceol. Tá an tádh liom.
2. Conas a bhí tú roghnaithe chun séinnt ann?
Well I had played as part of the music trail in dingle this past year through sending an application in online. I really just sent it in for the giggle and than after that I would make genuine jokes saying “oh yeah IMAGINE if they brought me to Derry, oh yeah that’s totally gonna happen!” and then it did and I was in disbelief till, well till it happened really
Sheinn mé mar chuid don ‘music trail’ sa Daingean an bliain seo chaite tar éis dom foirm iarratais a sheoladh isteach. Ní rabhas ag súil le bheith roghnaithe chun séinnt i nDoire. Ní raibh mé in ann é a chreidiúnt.
3. An raibh slua mhór ann agus conas a bhraith tú agus tú ag seinnt?
There wasn’t a huge crowd there but there was a good amount of people there and they were all listening to me which I’d prefer than to have the place packed with only a few people listening.
It was a really different feeling than most gigs I play. I think I had been waiting to do it for so long I was just ready and also I knew the people there were there to listen to me which is comforting so yeah
Ní raibh slua ollmhór ag mo cheolchorm ach bhí gach éinne ann ag éisteacht liom, rud a thaithin liom. Bhí sé i bhfad difrúil ó mo ghnáth cheolchoirm. Bhíos réidh toisc go raibh mé ag fanacht do ar feadh tamaill agus ag cleactadh. Bhí fhios agam go raibh na daoine ann chun éisteacht liom.
4. An scríobhann tú d’amhráín féin?
Yep I’ve always kinda written like when I was younger I would just make things up. I think the 1st time I actually wrote a song I was 7 and then I kept writing lyrics with melody’s until I thought myself guitar when I was 10?….11? yeah I cant remember but anyway I wrote a song on guitar before I learned one and from there I really started and I’ve been writing ever since !
Sea, thosnaigh mé ag scríobh ó aois óg. An chéad uair a scríobh mé amhrán bhíos seacht mbliana d’aois, tháinig mé suas le liricí agus fonn go dtí gur mhúin mé mé féin an giotár. Tá mé ag scríobh ónar thosnaigh mé ar an gcéad lá.
5. Abair linn faoi Walter & Co.
Walter and co is the band I am part of. I’ve been part of it on and off for 3 years. Members have changed and we’ve changed what we do but right now im really happy with how we’re going . It’s a whole different experience being in a band in some respects its a lot easier because you have people who are going through the hard things with you. I love Walter and co its kind of like a second family.
Táim páirteach sa bhana cheoil Walter and Co. Táim páirteach ann le trí bhlian anuas. Tá na baill agus an banna tar éis athrú, ach táim an-sásta leis anios. Is taithí difrúil é, agus i slí tá sé i bhfad níos éasca mar tá daoine eile ann chun cabhrú liom. Is breá liom Walter and Co tá siad mar mo dara clann.
6. Cad iad do phleaneanna don todhchaí?
Well I really want to make my own album/ep but ill have to fund it 100% by myself so it’ll take a while to make. I really want to gig more and just kinda let more people hear my music and write and just play music and just live and breathe it.
I mean really the plan is to just be a musician but I have this little thing called school Im told I have to do before the whole musican thing goes in to full swing so :/
Teastaíonn uaim m’albam/ep féin a dhéanamh ach caithfidh mé féin íoc as. Teastaíonn uaim níos mó ‘gigging’ a dhéanamh agus ligint do níos mó daoine mo cheol a chloisint. An plean ná a bheith mar cheoltóir ach caithfidh mé dul ar scoil roimhe sin. :/
