Sinéad and Catríona Kennedy often play Donegal-style traditional tunes, but sometimes they’re originals.
Where do those songs come from? It’s like they’re hanging in the air, in a space, waiting to be plucked, says Sinéad. “I feel like tunes are kind of around, and you happen upon them.”
In this month’s Music at Marrowbone Books, the Kennedy Sisters chat with Martin Cook about the origins of their fiddle-playing, singing with neighbours – and, of course, they play and sing a little too.
