Laura Ní Carthaigh Releases ‘Music of the Land’, a Folk Music Film

“Tune my body and my brain to the music from the land” David Mallett, Garden Song (1975)

Filmed during the Covid-19 Crisis lockdown in Ireland ‘Music of the Land’ is a seventeen-minute music film featuring original folk songs that draw on the local landscape and soundscape of rural Co. Cork. Funded by the Arts Council of Ireland, singer-songwriter and organic gardener, Laura Ní Carthaigh, performs three original songs that she has written, filmed and edited independently during the lockdown on her family farm and local nature reserve in mid-Cork.

Through the medium of music, Laura wishes to engage the public on environmental issues and encourage viewers to feel inspired and calmed by the natural world during this time of crisis when many people are turning to gardening, growing their own food and reconnecting to a simpler way of life.

The film aims to musically and visually convey elements of hope and peace to the public, but also the pressing need to take action now to prevent further degradation of our natural heritage at a time when climate change and biodiversity loss are urgent issues.
