Podcast: Sound and Music of the Shillelagh.
I’m delighted to have been a guest on Freemen Fitness’s “Mind Your Movement“ podcast. We covered my concept of martial sound, my research on the musical culture of 19th-century faction fights in Ireland, and the state of Irish stick-fighting today.
The host of the podcast, Nathan Featherstone, is a martial artist, personal trainer, and fitness instructor based in Dublin. He’s one of the few people teaching Irish stick-fighting in Ireland today. Nathan has trained in the Doyle style (Rince an Bata Uisce Bheatha), and he’s also pressure tested the techniques at Dog Brothers Gatherings.
