Siansán – Waterford premiere of live collaboration between some of Ireland’s best known musicians

SIANSÁN, will be a unique contemporary evening of music and spoken word, in which echos of Waterford’s long tradition of glassmaking are reflected in a contemporary interpretation of glass sounds.

On Friday OCTOBER 6TH IN WATERFORD’S CHRIST CHURCH CATHEDRAL Creative Ireland Waterford is pleased to present  SIANSÁN, the Waterford premiere of a live collaboration between some of Ireland’s best known musicians and songwriters, Liam Ó Maonlaí, his fellow Hot-House Flower, Peter O’Toole & traditional singer Sile Denvir in collaboration with Irish glass artist Róisín de Buitléar.

Alongside traditional songs with O’Maonlaí and O’Toole’s own compositions & harp music by Denvir, this performance will incorporate a collection of percussive, wind and stringed objects made of glass, created by Róisín de Buitléar.

Ó’Maonlaí, Denvir and O’Toole will bring de Buitléar’s finely blown glass to percussive life, their extreme fragility contributing to the sound and tension of what promises to be an extraordinary show.
