From the ITMA mailing:

The renowned Galway sean-nůs singer Joe Heaney is among the most famous singers of the genre ever, and he can be credited with spreading awareness of sean-nůs singing far beyond Ireland, especially in the United States. Performing in small venues and large theatres, as far as as the Sydney Opera House, Heaney brought his art to many who had never been to Ireland, and presented them with his own vision of that imagined place, giving them insight into traditional customs and performances.

This lecture will focus on the ways in which Heaney established his own authority in relation to the tradition he held so dear. From particular songs in his repertoire, it will emerge that Heaney was acutely aware of the potential of these pieces to reinforce his name as an authentic bearer and broadcaster of traditional song and ways of life. By their performance, Heaney positioned himself in a direct unbroken line of Gaelic tradition, and promoted himself as the quintessential twentieth-century representative of an ancient and continuous musical and literary lineage.

Lillis ” Laoire, himself a noted sean-nůs singer in the traditions of Donegal, is a lecturer in Irish in the National University of Ireland Galway. He was a Government of Ireland Senior Research Fellow with the Irish Research Council for the Humanities and Social Sciences in 2009?10, working on a project on Heaney's life and achievement especially in relation to his performance. The book Joe Heaney: Irish Song-Man, co-written with Professor Sean Williams, Evergreen State College, Olympia, Washington, will be published by Oxford University Press in April 2011. Additionally the project funded the construction of a website from archive materials held at the University of Washington and other locations. This can be accessed at www.joeheaney.org.

Just a reminder: CAMSCO released a 2-CD set of Joe Heaney telling traditional tales a couple of years back. It's never sold well, more's the pity, but it's still available ($25) from CAMSCO.

Incidentally, note that the venue (Helen Roe Theatre) is in the basement of the OLD site of the Archive - just along the terrace from the new!
