In addition to teaming up with his sister Saramai and poet Peter Fallon on Friday evening, Oisin Leech will be joined by his regular musical partner Mark McCausland for a full Lost Brothers session on (Friday).
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 their success at the last two Hinterland festivals, it’s time for another intimate interlude of songs, readings and talk with three acclaimed artists from County Meath.
As one of The Lost Brothers, Oisín Leech, from Navan, has played Glastonbury, Electric Picnic and SXSW. Last year The Lost Brothers also played their first (sold out) concert at Hinterland. This year he’ll sing solo and 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 Oisín and Saramai to read his poetry and keep the meaningful chat going is award-winning poet and publisher Peter Fallon, the success of whose work has taken him around the world and who, in the words of the Sunday Times, is “one of Ireland’s greatest literary talents”.
Following on from his successful, sold-out concert in Kells last summer, Matthew Gilsenan from The Celtic Tenors brings a performance of his new solo show to his hometown. The event will take place in the leafy surrounds of the Headfort Garden (weather permitting).
Matthew, a true lyric tenor, is at home with Puccini or Verdi, but you can expect a bit of grand opera, along with Dylan and Cohen, folk songs, and even a bit of country. Matthew’s belief is that a good song is a good song, no matter what its origins. The evening will have special local appeal on this occasion as The Inspire Choral Group will join Matthew as guests on stage.
