Each artist stretches the other’s narratives in spoken and unspoken airs, finding solace in the unexpected places between. Tom’s poetry draws on the traditional arts, folklore and rural Irish life; he writes vividly about traditional music, the people who play(ed) it, and the context in which it lives. As a traditional fiddle player, music archivist and researcher, Danny’s compositions bring a corresponding unconventional sensitivity to a similar sphere that informs Tom’s work.
A unique What To Bring When We Leave publication of photography, poetry and music has also been published to accompany the performance.

“French’s ability in each of his books, is to find a way into such places, where the “beautifully executed wounds” are shown for what they are.” John McAuliffe [on Tom French]
This is a Solstice Arts Centre commission creatively produced by Belinda Quirke
