The live-streamed event will be available to view for free this weekend.
As International Women's Day approaches, a selection of Ireland's most exciting female voices in the worlds of music and word are joining forces for Notes From A Quiet Land – featuring Maria Doyle Kennedy, Gemma Dunleavy (pictured), Anne Enright, Fehdah, Felispeaks, Tara Flynn, Sinéad Gleeson, Aoife Nessa Frances and Annemarie Ní Churreain. The event will be available to view for free on the National Concert Hall's YouTube and social media channels this Saturday, March 6, at 8pm.
The event, curated by Sinéad Gleeson and Gary Sheehan, will find the artists reflecting and responding to the silence of empty streets and venues during the ongoing pandemic.
"An important part of the NCH's remit is to encourage and engage artists in the presentation of new music and works, whilst also providing a platform for it to be performed and heard,"says Robert Read, CEO of the National Concert Hall. "At this time of crisis, the NCH is pleased to have the opportunity to offer a platform to support new and leading female voices, particularly as we approach International Women's Day, to offer their musical and literary response to the times we live in."
