“Soul Clap its Hands and Sing”: Peter Fallon, Oisín Leech & Saramai Leech
The Irish Traditional Music Archive (ITMA) & Poetry Ireland are delighted to announce a new series of music and poetry events: “Soul Clap its Hands and Sing”
Poet Peter Fallon, Oisín Leech of The Lost Brothers and singer-songwriter Saramai Leech are regular collaborators, bound as much by a mutual admiration of each other’s work as by their County Meath roots. Join these three remarkable artists for an enjoyable interlude of conversation, music and words, spoken and sung.
There’s a well-known maxim that says all art aspires to the condition of music. If true, then poetry surely comes very close to meeting it. Indeed, Irish poets and musicians have always cast a particular spell on each other. “Soul Clap its Hands and Sing”, a new series of music and poetry events presented by Poetry Ireland in partnership with the Irish Traditional Music Archive, will offer audiences a chance to enjoy some of the finest artists in both forms as they weave in and out of each other's work.
