MILLTOWN BARDS

stbiceallcluainecultureaw

I’m really excited about tonight’s event, Friday Feb 1st in Milltown, Co Galway, at this Galway 2020 event celebrating the local Bardic School that was operating between 13th-16th centuries. I’ve been working with the local children, making up a choral bardic poem celebrating the coming of spring, which they’ll be performing on the night, to a jig rhythm provided by their own feet – in true bardic style!¬† I’ll also get a chance to read my poem ‘The Milltown Lass’ from Session, celebrating local legend, box and fiddle player, Rose Murphy. Lots more wonderful musical and poetic guests. Can’t wait!
