Antelope Productions Presents MOTHERLAND : Songs of 20th Century Women performed by Edel Murphy (Celtic Woman, Riverdance) and band in an intimate show at The Civic Studio Theatre, Tallaght.

Featuring evocative projected images alongside thought-provoking spoken word, Edel Murphy performs iconic songs of struggle and celebration from such song writing greats as Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Nina Simone, Kate Bush, Nanci Griffith, Dolly Parton, and The Beatles.

Following extensive tours with Grammy winning shows Celtic Woman and Riverdance, Edel Murphy and live band return to the Civic, Tallaght to bring you through the Dustbowl of the Great Depression, into the homes of 1950s urban desperation, down streets of protest in the 1960s and into the tumult of the 21st Century.

“An amazing show…Edel Murphy was stunning, the sharpness of her delivery was outstanding… I was blown away by it”.   Dick O’Riordan, Business Post

“A poignant and socially relevant journey over a century of music.  Edel Murphy owns these songs and the stage….the musical arrangements are masterful.”  RTÉ Lyric FM
