Poetry

Following on from the success of last year’s session of poetry and music in which one of Ireland’s foremost poets, Peter Fallon, teamed up with Oisin Leech of the Lost Brothers and his sister, singer/songwriter Saramai Leech, and entertained an audience who wanted much more, we thought we would give the whole thing another shot. So we have.

An evening of words and song

Event  37 
Venue: Church of Ireland – Merriebelle Farm Stage

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’.
