Lorcán MacMathúna: The Tain, featuring Fearghus Ó Conchúir, Martin Tourish, Eamonn Galldubh, and Daire Bracken

Lorcán MacMathúna, who has been described as one of the most progressive talents in contemporary folk music, presents his reinterpretation of this ancient Irish epic. The Tain will see MacMathúna, bring together outstanding contemporary dance artist, Fearghus Ó Conchúir, with traditional musicians, using Louis LeBrocquy’s works of the same name from The Niland Collection as an inspiration and a backdrop. This unique and exciting reinterpretation of ancient Bardic texts brings a 1st century mythological tale to life for contemporary audiences across the
disciplines of dance, Sean Nós song and traditional music.
