WORDS & MUSIC with Emily Cullen and Eileen O’Brien Music – Saturday 1st October, 4pm, Tickets: €15.00
Venue: Nenagh Castle
This event is part of the Dromineer Nenagh Literary Festival
This year marks the 230th anniversary of the ‘last gathering of harpers’ in Belfast in 1792. It was at this historic event that Edward Bunting transcribed many well known airs, preserving much Irish music for posterity. In what promises to be a very special event, poet and harper, Emily Cullen and fiddler, Eileen Minogue O’Brien will celebrate the legacy of that important occasion in poetry, harp, fiddle and song. This event will also include the world premiere of a new piece commissioned by Dromineer Nenagh Literary Festival.
This event is not wheelchair accessible, please dress warmly.
