ONE MINUTE FOR ST. PATRICK / FRANK CORCORAN

Join this trinity of Irish musicians and composers for an alternative St Patrick’s Day celebration at Chapter.
Internationally esteemed virtuoso guitarist Benjamin Dwyer, voice and electronics artist Jenn Kirby and flautist Emma Coulthard present an exciting collection of contemporary Irish music that reflects the extraordinary diversity and richness of output from our Celtic cousins. From a new incantation for St Patrick to the shocking witnessing of the ancient Sheela-na-gig, this music, rarely heard in the UK, will challenge definitions and present a fresh perspective.

Age 14+
