Inner Voices Concert at The National Concert Hall

The National Concert Hall Inner Voices Concert is a yearly showcase wherein members of staff take to the stage and demonstrate their musical prowess, whether it be in the classical, jazz or rock genres. The concert took place in the NCH's newly-furbished upstairs venue known as the Studio, which was also the venue wherein 'Embers and Earth' was launched. 

As a member of FOH (Front-of-House), I performed my poem 'Colossi', the first track off the 'Embers and Earth' album, with musical accompaniment. The musicians I performed with included Paul Wade on piano (and composer of 'Colossi'), Jim Tate on bass (who also appeared on the album) and Daire Cavanagh on trumpet.

The concert took place on August 22nd, 2017.
