This project is managed by the Geordie Hanna Traditional Singing Society (GHTSS). Geordie Hanna, was a traditional singer with a distinctly northern and rural style associated with the shores of Lough Neagh. The group wish to encourage participation and foster an interest in traditional singing from a wide audience around the Lough, particularly to connect young people, new to the tradition, with older people, as the ‘keepers’ of the tradition. The purpose of this project is to celebrate the Loughs traditional singing culture with the research and publication of a book featuring a collection of songs from Lough Neagh which tell the story of love, emigration, hunting, fishing and humour from around its shores. The book will feature traditional songs from the Lough Shore and attempt to add to the greater Ulster repertoire of traditional songs.
