The Vespertine Quintet – This Place is a Shelter –
w/ Paidraig O Tuama
Thurs 12th December
The Vespertine Quintet return to their spiritual home of De Barra’s this December for a unique winter show combining their own lush and spacious minimalism of strings, piano and electronics with the soulful poetry of Pádraig Ó Tuama.
The former leader of the Corrymeela community in Belfast, Ó Tuama is known the world over for his lyrical, soulful and achingly honest poetry. He is a frequent contributor to Onbeing.org and powerful voice for peace and reconciliation, LGBT inclusion, and the value of the arts in public life.
The Vespertine Quintet and Ó Tuama will present a night of rich collaboration, melding words and music.
