Voices of Northern Ireland

My name is Kyle Inman; I am one of four Fulbright mtvU scholars around the globe and a student of the Queen’s University Irish History Master’s program. For the past year I have researched music and produced videos about the creative brilliance and uniqueness of musicians in Northern Ireland. My mission is to use these videos to promote outstanding Irish musical talent and displace Northern Ireland’s global reputation of perpetual conflict with a better understanding of its culture through music.

The following video is a snapshot of my project ‘Voices of Northern Ireland’ and gives a brief look at my work. The videos I have produced encompass a wide variety of artists, instruments and stories including Irish singer Gráinne Holland, folk rock group ‘Scorpion Jack’, the lost stories of Sailortown, the history of the Irish harp and bodhran drum, insight into the Linen Hall Library and the story behind the ‘Music from the Blocks’ CD. My blog site presents something to interest everyone.

If it only takes a minute to support a country rebuilding from the devastation of a thirty year conflict, is there any reason why you wouldn’t show your support?

Please peruse my blog site: https://fulbright.mtvu.com/author/kyleinman/, click on the titles of any or all of the videos that interest you, watch or scan them, scroll to the bottom of the page and leave your comments however brief or lengthy.

Help the world hear the Voices of Northern Ireland.

Many thanks in advance!!!

  3. This is fascinating. I especially like how you approached the musicians. Instead of treating them like subjects to be studied, you let their voices be heard, which makes your plea for support all the more effective. How can I ever see these people as war-torn when I have watched them in the act of creating art?
