Fiachra: Hot and Talented

This is Fiachra, AKA Dr. Fiachra Ó Corragáin, a composer, multi-instrumentalist, singer, music producer, dancer, researcher, and content creator.

Fiachra studied Music and Irish in University College Cork and achieved a double first-class honors degree with final results that were in the top five highest marks in Music ever awarded by the university. At just twenty-one, he began his PhD studies in composition in the School of Music and Theatre in University College Cork, specializing in composing music for dance and narrative musical composition.  In 2016, he was conferred with a PhD in composition as the youngest doctoral music graduate in UCC’s history.  

In 2018, Fiachra was commissioned to compose and perform Planxty Prince Charles in honor of the visit of Prince Charles to Cork.  Fiachra has composed numerous commemorative ‘planxty’ compositions—Irish melodies for the harp—enlivening the traditions of historical Irish harper composers such as Turlough O’Carolan. He has composed and produced music for stage and screen, including the Canadian short film Sídhe, and dance productions.

So amazingly talented, and so amazingly adorable. I like his big harp; I had no idea harpists had such nice asses. I also like his big ax, and was thinking he could be my yard boy and serenade me whilst doing so.

Wow! I didn't think it was possible but you posted an Irish song I didn't know! The Boats Are Far at Sea is a new one for me. As is the artist, but no longer. Thanks!!

Singer, dancer, harpist and hunk -- a quadruple threat!

It's a good thing he doesn't sit in front of me in the orchestra. I'd be distracted. I met Fiachra on the Philly orchestra's European tour when he did one appearance with us. Had I not took up the cello, my second choice would have been the harp. His clothes hid that body. Who knew?

Sheesh! All that and he plays the harp too!

Yep. That's the post.

@Deedles
I was intrigued by his ax, and then I saw his harp.

Take that any way you like!

Fiachra does indeed seem to have hit the mother lode doesn't he!
