On this very special tour, Duke Special will be performing songs and music based on the poetry of influential and renowned Belfast writer Michael Longley. Longley’s poems are full of gentleness, honesty, mischief and love and are peppered with a cast of artists, animals, flowers, friends and long forgotten soldiers.
