Tom Dunne, front man with Something Happens returns to Hinterland to celebrate the anniversary of the Beatles eponymous LP (better known as The White Album) with an illustrated tribute.
Famed local artiste Matthew Gilsenan (The Celtic Tenors) will portray the great Irish lyric tenor John McCormack in The Count in the unique setting of the ballroom of Headfort House where McCormack performed on a number of occasions.
After the success of their unique partnership in 2016 and 2017 we present another intimate interlude of songs, readings and talk with three acclaimed artists from County Meath. As one of The Lost Brothers Oisin Leech, from Navan, has played Glastonbury, the Electric Picnic and SXSW. Here he’ll sing solo and combine with his sister Saramai, another exceptional singer-songwriter who, thanks to a recent EP and appearances at Other Voices and other venues, is a growing force.
Joining Oisin and Saramai to read his poetry and stimulate a conversation is award-winning poet and publisher Peter Fallon, the success of whose work has brought him around the world and who, in the words of the Sunday Times, is ‘one of Ireland's greatest literary talents’.
Spend an hour in the company of the great Irish lyric tenor who charmed and electrified audiences the world over in the early years of the 20th century. His repertoire ranged from operatic arias to his favourite Irish ‘come all ye’s’. The event will take place in a venue in which McCormack himself actually performed, the magnificent Robert Adam ballroom of Headfort House. The music of McCormack will be performed by one of Ireland’s contemporary great lyric tenors, Matthew Gilsenan (The Celtic Tenors) accompanied on piano by Gavan Murray.
