18.30 A Portrait of the Nation – Political Song in the Works of Joyce, Sinead Murphy and Darina Gallagher.
Concert and Reception, James Joyce Centre
A Portrait of the Nation is a performance of songs that reflect the cultural life that surrounded the young James Joyce and in particular inspire A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. These songs question the concept of nationhood and reveal an intense merging of cultural energies. The young Joyce uses song to challenge, to entertain, to lament, to romance and to hope. Through these rich musical layers, Darina Gallagher and Sinead Murphy explore the political, religious and social tensions that animate so much of Joyce’s work.
