THE Piaf – Brel Project takes place on Sunday 20 July in Ionad Naomh Padraig, Dobhar/Dore. Edith Piaf was one of France’s most beloved singers.
Her singing reflected her tragic life, with her specialty being the poignant ballad. Jacque Brel composed and performed songs charged with poetry and drama.
This show will present their work rendered into exquisite Irish by poet Liam Ó Muirthile.
They will be performed by Hilary Bow – whose album Oneness was acclaimed by Eamon Carr as ‘one of the most captivating Irish albums of the year’ – and Doimnic Mac Giolla Bhríde, whose work has been praised as ‘pure magic, rich with mirth, mischief, and melancholy’. Accompanying them will be Peter Roycroft on piano; Geoff Kirk on drums; and Neville Lloyd on double-bass.
Designer Margaret Lonergan has created on-screen projections of the lyrics accompanied by images inspired by the songs. Sunday 20 July, 8.30pm. Ionad Naomh Padraig, Dobhar. Admission €15/€12
