Black Mountain Institute
The lyrical story of a musical Irishman's migration to England in search of fieldwork—and finding the love of his life only to lose her—comes alive in a unique multimedia performance presented in celebration of St. Patrick's Day. Based on I Could Read the Sky, a collaborative novel by BMI Fellow Timothy O'Grady and former New Yorker staff photographer Steve Pyke, the show features O'Grady's reading from the book interspersed with music from world-renowned fiddle-and-guitar duo Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill and the singing of celebrated Sean-nós artist Aine Meenaghan, with Pkye's arresting images projected throughout the performance.
