Cathy Jordan & Nuala Kennedy Team for the Magical ‘HUSHEEN’.
The Hawk’s Well has teamed with Siamsa Tíre & Lasta Festival to present a free musical event for children called ‘HUSHEEN’. Featuring Nuala Kennedy and Cathy Jordan, the special performance for the young and the young at heart, will be available for 48 hours from Sat 12th June.
Suitable for ages 0 – 4 and their parents, HUSHEEN is a magical musical performance of new and traditional Irish songs especially selected for the youngest audience members. This magical performance features world renowned traditional singer and flute player Nuala Kennedy, teaming with Dervish front woman and multi-instrumentalist Cathy Jordan to present a delightful selection of new songs and much-loved classics.
A delight for the senses, HUSHEEN will make you want to sit back, close your eyes and breathe, letting the music take you to somewhere different; somewhere magical! This evocative thirty-minute performance will engage, comfort and relax babies, toddlers and their parents.
This beautiful performance of Irish song is designed to connect us with our ancestors, drawing a line between today’s babies and those that were nursed and cradled to the same kind of music centuries before. Appealing to adults as well as the very young, the music reaches outwards, from deep within our ancient Irish songstore, towards our unique place within our wider global music family.
A free, streamed event available from the Hawk’s Well website, all are welcome for the performance that is available to view at any time from 2pm on Sat 12 June. The event runs as part of Cruinniú na nÓg 2021,or, the day of youthful creativity; a day of free creativity for children and young people.
