The Long Sleep with Dermot Bolger and Jerry O’Reilly
The Long Sleep is presented at The Crypt in Christchurch Cathedral and is a collaboration of traditional poetry and singing with Dermot Bolger and Jerry O’Reilly.
Taken from the Irish word meaning both ‘to say’ and ‘to sing’, Abair is a program of traditional singing and storytelling events exploring the oral folk traditions of Ireland.
The programme, curated by Macdara Yeates and hosted by Donal Fallon, offers a broad range of intimate, unplugged performances, each highlighting the richness and beauty of the Irish singing and storytelling traditions still preserved and practiced to the present day.
