Eighty three years after his death, on the 19th August 1936, Federico García Lorca, known as the National Poet of Spain, continues to fascinate people from all over the world. The internationally renowned playwright and collector of Spanish folk and flamenco songs was much influenced by an early translation of J. M. Synge’s ‘Riders to the Sea’. And across the seas, Lorca still reaches deep into our hearts. One of the first poets to tune Federico’s distinctly Andalusian music into English was Michael Hartnett and so, with poetry and music in mind, ‘Loca Por Lorca’ honours these two great poets with new translations into English by Keith Payne and into Irish by Theo Dorgan, together with new musical compositions and Spanish folk music from Cormac Juan Breatnach, Jaime Muñoz, Carlos Beceiro and Cormac de Barra.
