The Great War Roadshow

A Lovely War! An evening of Songs & Stories presented by Myles Dungan

Presented by TalentBase

Written and presented by historian and broadcaster Myles Dungan, this stirring show tells the story of the music of the Great War – how and why the best-known songs came to be composed, who sang them, what the men in the trenches thought of them, and how they retaliated with music of their own. The songs will be performed by The Brook Singers, with soloists Brendan MacQuaile, Sadhbh Burt Fitzgerald and Jonathan Creasy and musical accompaniment by Rónán Murray.

Brought to you by The Red Line Book Festival in association with South Dublin County Council Heritage Office.
