Due to adverse weather conditions in Ireland, we are obliged to cancel "Where Angels Listen" on Thursday 1 March as well as the reading of "Your Chroma" on Friday 2 March. (We will contact all those who have already booked regarding reimbursement.)
Organised in conjunction with our current exhibition, Where Angels Listen is a creative and affectionate response to the extraordinary life and poetry of Francis Ledwidge by some of Ireland’s most celebrated contemporary artists. A socialist, Republican, poet, politician, lover and soldier, Ledwidge died during World War I at the battle of Passchendaele in 1917. Award-winning playwright Deirdre Kinahan has invited the legendary musician Steve Wickham (The Waterboys), Sinéad Gleeson (RTÉ, The Book Show), Oisin Leech (The Lost Brothers), Saramai & Cormac O’Keefe, and beat poet Lewis Kenny to perform new works inspired by Ledwidge’s evocative poems. This promises to be a thrilling evening with an eclectic mix of music, readings and performance.
On Friday 2 March at 1pm: A lunchtime reading of Your Chroma, a poetic essay by Sinéad Gleeson, with musical accompaniment by Stephen Shannon (admission free, reservation recommended – bring a sandwich !
