Mulranny to Manchester: A Celtic Connection

27 February @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

Mulranny to Manchester will be an informal night of music, poetry and stories that take you through the history of the Irish in Manchester from the mid 1800s to the early 1900s. All the content chosen has a direct link to either Manchester, Ireland or both and features the stories of some truly incredible individuals. There will be classical and traditional music including works by Joan Trimble, Michael McGoldrick and Ernest John Moeran. The poetry will be that of Eva Gore-Booth, an incredible woman whose story will be told during the event.

As an Irish student in Manchester I always knew that there was a deep rooted connection between the two places, but until I started research for this project I didn’t realise how interesting and important the connection was. I would love to share this history in an engaging way and being a violinist, I have enlisted the help of a few of my friends to perform at the event.The music will be provided by a string quartet who all study at the Royal Northern College of Music and the narrator is a University of Manchester graduate.
