Hawk’s Well Theatre’s Late Summer Celebration Returns to Markree Castle.
Hawk’s Well Theatre is returning to Markree Castle, taking over its stunning setting for a magnificent late summer soirée. The event will feature good food, great music, and a newly commissioned piece by Niamh, Deirdre and Sean Farrell.
A rare chance to get immersed in the beautiful surroundings of the 17th century family run castle, a tapestry of sumptuous sounds, beautifully crafted songs, and exceedingly good fare awaits, all in support of the Hawk's Well Renovation Fund.
The Late Summer Celebration takes place on the evening on Wednesday 4th September, with two separate sessions; one beginning at 6pm, and a later slot which starts at 7pm.
Attendees will first enjoy a sparkling welcome in the lavish surroundings of the castle, to the strains of elegant strings.
This will be followed by the premier of a newly commissioned piece within the intimate setting of Markree’s spectacular chapel. Niamh, Deirdre and Sean Farrell will be performing a collection of stunning vocals accompanied by Niamh Crowley and string quartet, interweaving trad, folk and popular music.
One of Ireland’s most exquisite and versatile voices, Niamh Farrell's memorable performances are nothing short of spine-tingling. Her musical influences are vast, allowing her to move effortlessly between Irish traditional, gospel contemporary and folk genres, offering the audience an eclectic mix of material. Niamh has travelled the world with many different bands and artists including, Bobby McFerrin and David Gray. She will be joined by two of her earliest musical influences; her sister and brother, Deirdre and Sean Farrell; and a string quartet led by Niamh Crowley.
Following the performance, attendees will make their way to the spectacular Grand Hall for a wonderful late summer feast, with the evening finishing off with further entertainment in the bar.
Supported by Value Centre, there has been a huge interest in championing this fundraising event.
