Irish Voices: An evening of poetry and music with Ciarán Carson

Ciarán Carson was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, in 1948, into an Irish-speaking family. He is the author of a number of collections of poetry, including The Irish for No (1987), winner of the Alice Hunt Bartlett Award; Belfast Confetti (1989); First Language: Poems (1994), winner of the T.S. Eliot Prize; Breaking News (2003), winner of the Forward Poetry Prize; For All We Know (2008); On the Night Watch (2010); and Until Before After (2010).

Following the reading, Ciarán, who plays flute and whistle, and his wife Deirdre, an accomplished fiddler, will perform a selection of traditional Irish music.

Wine and cheese (and Guinness) reception to follow!
