Tionscadal Piaf-Brel - The Piaf-Brel Project
Tionscadal Piaf-Brel features songs by Edith Piaf and Jacques Brel rendered into exquisite Irish by Liam Ó Muirthile. They are performed by singers Hilary Bow - whose album Oneness was acclaimed by Eamon Carr as ‘one of the most captivating Irish albums of the year’ - and Doimnic Mac Giolla Bhríde, whose work has been praised by the Minnesota Irish Gazette as ‘pure magic, rich with mirth, mischief, and melancholy’. Accompanying them are 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 and Paul Verlaine.
