Edith Piaf and Jacques Brel in Irish!

Following the sell-out success of this show at IMRAM 2011, on Thursday 8th March a specially expanded show will present many more songs by Edith Piaf and Jacques Brel rendered into exquisite Irish by poet Liam Ó Muirthile. They will be performed by singers Hilary Bow and Doimnic Mac Giolla Bhríde. Accompanying them will be Peter Roycroft on piano; Geoff Kirk on drums; and Neville Lloyd on double-bass. 

Designer Margaret Lonergan has created special on-screen projections of the lyrics accompanied by images inspired by the songs. Liam Ó Muirthile will also read new versions in Irish of poems by Jacques Prévert (1900 -1977) and Paul Verlaine (1844-1896) to musical accompaniment.

Venue: The Pavilion Theatre, Marine Road, Dún Laoghaire
