Arena Arts Show and the Kells Hay Festival Weekend June 25th 2015
Deirdre Shannon singing live on RTE 1’s Arts show Arena as part of the Kells Hay Festival Literary weekend. July 2015. Also taking part in the show were Brian Eno composer, musician and record producer for the likes of U2 and Talking Heads, Ben Okri award winning poet and novelist, and Matthew Spangler American Director and Playwright. A great night out as part of the festival very interesting listening to Sean Rocks guests and the common roots of going to Art college as did i before starting my music career. Later on we caught some of Michael Hardings tales from his books as well as poetry readings under the stars and in candlelight by RTE presenters Myles Dungan and Sean Rocks. Michael Harding also graced us again with some heartfelt poetry and the night ended with a surprise visit by Ben Okri. All in all a brilliant weekend and i look forward to next year.
