The Given Note On Home Ground - Liam O'Flynn, Neil Martin, Bríd Brennan and Rod McVey

Peerless uilleann pipe Liam O'Flynn returns to his late friend and long time collaborator Seamus Heaney's Home Ground for one off performance.

The legendary musician will play some of the traditional music which formed such a part of "The Poet & the Piper" presentation and which resonated with the poetry and personality of Seamus Heaney. 

Award winning Irish actress Bríd Brennan has personally selected the Heaney poems she will read, her distinctive voice and significant stage presence unmistakeable.

On cello is Neil Martin, a composer and musician with an international reputation for choral andorchestral work, theatre, dance, tv and film scores. On keyboards is the Belfast musician Rod McVey, a long time musical collaborator with Liam O'Flynn.

Venue: Laurel Villa

Times: 7.30pm
