Song of Granite

Song of Granite

In the presence of director Pat Collins

Enigmatic and complex, Joe Heaney was one of the greats of traditional Irish singing (sean nós). Shaped by the myths, fables and songs of his upbringing in the west of Ireland, his emergence as a gifted artist came at a personal cost. Featuring performances from Colm Seoighe, Macdara Ó Fátharta, Jaren Cerf, Lisa O’Neill, Damien Dempsey, and sean nós singers Mícheál Ó Chonfhaola and Pól Ó Ceannabháin, as well as beautiful black and white, cinematography, Song of Granite is a distinct portrait of Heaney’s life and marvelous exploration of music and song.
