Traditional Irish Music
The Kilkenny arts festival gets under way on 9th August and features a very interesting evening of Poerty, Music and Song featuring Tradconnect member Niamh Parsons. Folk rock band Scullion rounded off the 2011 festival in style with a rousing gig in the Set. They now return for what will be a great evenings entertainment mixing these art forms. Featuring poet and playwright Paula Meehan, winner of the Marten Toonder Award for Literature; Colm Tóibín, Booker Prize-winning novelist and curator of the Literature strand for many years, and of course traditional singer Niamh Parsons, one of the most distinctive voices in Irish music, this unique event brings the literature strand to a wonderful close. Worth checking out if you are near Kilkenny. The performance takes place on 18th August 2013.
