Here’s what and where I’ll be performing on Culture Night in Dublin City. Hope you have a cultural night wherever you are!
6.15pm – 7.00pm This Friday, Culture Night in St Patrick’s Mental Health Services, James’s Street.
‘I Hear it in the Deep Heart’s Core’ – an evening of the poetry of WB Yeats, with many of the poems set to music.
Wonderful musician Enda Reilly is renowned for his musical interpretations of Yeats’s poetry, his original music and melodic singing voice heightens the words of the great poet, allowing you to appreciate the poems on a higher level. Enda has teamed up with actor Cathal Quinn, Head of Voice at The Lir, Trinity College, who is a celebrated speaker of poetry: his portrayal of Keats travelled to Canada, America and the UK; his interpretation of the poetry of Beckett for Mouth on Fire has played many festivals, and, in collaboration with Enda Reilly, they have brought the poems of Yeats and Heaney off the page for Guthanna Binne Síoraí in Ireland, India and Japan. Together they present ‘I Hear it in the Deep Heart’s Core’ a thrilling combination of voices to take you on a lyrical and musical journey through some of Yeats’s most famous poems.
8.20pm or so. Then I’ll be legging it down to Meeting House Square to play with Stephen James Smith and Aoife Scott and the RTE Orchestra.
