Museum of Literature Ireland (MoLI) presents What To Bring When We Leave, a collaborative commission culminating in a unique continuous live performance by Tom French (word) and Danny Diamond (fiddle). Each artist stretches the other’s narratives in spoken and unspoken airs, finding solace in the unexpected places between.
Tom French’s poetry draws on the traditional arts, folklore and rural Irish life; he writes vividly about traditional music, the people who play(ed) it, and the context in which it lives. As a traditional fiddle player, music archivist and researcher, Danny Diamond’s compositions bring a corresponding unconventional sensitivity to a similar sphere that informs French’s work.
