Motherland: Songs of 20th Century Women


  • 8 May // 8.15pm
  • Studio Theatre
  • €20 & €18 concession

MOTHERLAND brings 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 confusion of the 21st century with iconic songs of Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Nina Simone, Kate Bush, Nanci Griffith, Richard Thompson, Dolly Parton, and The Beatles.

Following extensive tours with Grammy winning shows Celtic Woman and Riverdance, Edel is delighted to present this powerful production under the brilliant musical direction of Ewan Cowley.
Performed by Edel Murphy (Celtic Woman, Riverdance) & live band.

“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
