An evening with writers Patrick McCabe and Timothy O’Grady, featuring musicians Dezi Donnelly, Mike McGoldrick, Cathy Jordan of Dervish, and the whistler Larry Beau.
Patrick and Timothy come to The Met with this music/spoke word event based on their novels Poguemahone and I Could Read the Sky.
Published twenty-five years apart, both novels unite in their renderings of the acts of an emigrant’s memory. Memories of pig killing, kitchen dances, London squats, ghosts, fairground boxing, psychedelia, Soho drinking clubs, trenches, leaps from windows and music both melancholy and ecstatic.
Both writers have previously toured Ireland and Britain with unique music/spoke word events and come together for the first time in this show featuring some of the most authentic and innovative musical talents in Ireland.
