Profiling our workshop artists / Súil ar aíonna na ceardlainne 2022
Bronnadh Gradam Ceoil TG4, Ceoltoir Óg na Bliana 2021 ar Shorcha Costello. Is ceoltoir traidisiúnta í a sheineann an fidil. Is ón Tulach I gContae an Chláir í agus tagann sí ó clann atá préamhaithe sa cheol traidisiúnta.
Is mar cheoltoir aonair is mó a sheineann sí ach tá baint aici le teacht le chéile ceolmhair eile,ceann acu san mar duet lena máthair Mary MacNamara. Cé go bhfuil stíl fidléireachta Shorcha bainteach go mór le Oirthear an Chláir,bhí tionchar mór ag leithéidí, Frankie Gavin, Brian Rooney agus Tommy Potts uirthi.
Tá sí ag obair mar Teiiapeóir Ceoil cáilithe ach leanann sí lei ag deanamh ceoil agus ag múineadh ceoil.
