Cormac Ó hAodáin, corn Francach

Inniu, sa tsraith Me & My Instrument, buaileann muid le Cormac Ó hAodáin a sheinneann an corn Francach.

Sa físeán seo,  labhrann Cormac faoin corn Francach, conas a thosaigh sé ag seinnt an uirlis agus seinneann sé píosa a thaitníonn go mór leis. 

Seo nascanna go dtí an dá phíosa a luann Cormac
Ein Heldenleben - https://spoti.fi/35PmbR6  

Ravel: Pavane pour une infante défunte, M. 19 - https://spoti.fi/2YX0IEm

Má sheinneann tú an corn Francach tú féin, déan físeán gairid, cur é ar líne agus bí cinnte go gclibeann tú an Ceoláras Náisiúnta ar na meáin shóisialta.
