'Wonder of the Wake' - March 14th-20th

Come join us for an evening of song, music, bardic poetry and story-telling in a show that celebrates one of the oldest rites of humanity, the Irish Wake.

Demonstrating grief through wailing and song has long been a historic, sacred part of honouring and remembering the dead. From the Chinese to the Assyrians, Irish and Ancient Greeks, oral rituals of outward mourning were a responsibility that fell to women.

We are part of a show called 'Wonders of the Wake', a show that celebrates one of the oldest rites of humanity, the Irish Wake, in song, music, bardic poetry and story-telling.

This show features original music by us as well as traditional music. It is a collaboration between ourselves, beloved Irish singer Niamh Parsons and BAFTA winning writer Kevin Toolis.

March 14th Lyric Theatre, Belfast                  8pm
