This unique cycle of musical readings was originally commissioned by the National Library of Ireland for their 2019 ‘Seamus Heaney: Listen Now Again’ exhibition in Dublin. A wonderful opportunity to (re)discover the work of one of the great poets of the 20th century and enjoy the voices of some of Ireland’s most talented authors, actors and musicians, many of whom composed pieces specially for the occasion.

Wednesday 15: Jim Lucey and Navá (Paul Roe, Shayan Coohe, Shahab Coohe and Ultan O’Brien)
