This is a first…a poet and a songwriter. Joining me in Studio the other were poet Nuala Roche and songwriter Kairen Caine. They’ve joined creative forces in a performance happening at The Watergate Theatre on Sunday, March 21st.
Nuala’s poetry is widely regarded and her first book “Fish-Speak” shows her love of words and word play, luxuriating in the flow of text and ideas.
Kairen has been a songwriter for many years and a firm favourite in the Kilkenny music scene as a performer and supporter of live music in all its forms.
I was intrigued as to how these seemingly different art forms could co-exist. It turns out that there are more to unite than divide them …We hear poetry from Nuala, new songs from Kairen and, finally, a poem which inspired another song.
