Song Of Granite. Friday 13th April 2018. 8pm

Director Pat Collins. Ireland. 2017. 104 minutes.

Acclaimed filmmaker Pat Collins (of ‘Necklace of Wrens’ fame) brings the dramatic life story of legendary sean- nós singer Joe Heaney to the screen in THE SONG IN GRANITE, an audacious exploration of the man and his music. With an approach that marries traditional narrative episodes with documentary footage, the film will celebrate the music Joe Heaney created while painting an unflinching portrait of Heaney, the man.
