Sunday, 30 April 2017, 4.00pm

‘A pitch perfect book’ Niall MacMonagle, editor of Windharp

Readings and music to mark the Artisan House publication fermata: Writings inspired by Music, edited by Eva Bourke and Vincent Woods.

Joining the editors at this special Cúirt event will be writers Moya Cannon, Louis de Paor, Mary Noonan, Matthew Sweeney, and Peter Woods accompanied by musical performances by piper and flute player Louise Mulcahy and composer and accordion player, Christy McNamara.

fermata  (in musical notation a pause, literally a breathing space) contains poems and prose writings from sixty-five contributors – a chorus of diverse and lively voices in response to music, the most beloved of all the arts.

The writing is inspired by singers, composers, musicians, dancers and the music of ‘what happens’.  From a lullaby in a dead South African language (Moya Cannon), the pub session (Peter Woods), the Fado house of Argentina Santos (Mary Noonan), didjeridu (Louis de Paor), to Do Wah Diddy Diddy Do (Matthew Sweeney), all this and far more accompanied by incomparable playing from Christy McNamara and Louise Mulcahy.
