The cultural fallout of the economic meltdown and the primacy of art and music in Irish life will be two of the subjects up for debate when writer Joseph O’Connor and musician/filmmaker Philip King get together at the Peacock Theatre in Dublin
Joseph O’Connor is a best-selling and critically acclaimed author known not just for his historical novels (Star Of the Sea, Redemption Falls, Ghost Light), but also his non-fiction work and RTÉ Drivetime podcasts, the CD version of which topped the Irish indie charts just last week. Philip King is a broadcaster, musicologist and musician best known for his work with Scullion, the award-winning Bringing It All Back Home series and the annual Other Voices. These two forces of nature will take to the stage in the Peacock Theatre next month for a week-long all-singing, all-talking exploration of the influence of Irish-American ballads on O’Connor’s fiction.
Joseph O’Connor and Philip King will be on the Peacock stage from November 15 to 20. Tickets €18 – €22.
