A unique exhibition of paintings and songs by Barry Kerr, performed by Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh, Pauline Scanlon, Niall Hanna, Síle Denvir, Niamh Dunne and Seán Óg Graham.
Barry Kerr is a visual artist, song-writer and musician whose deep love and understanding of Irish life and traditions informs his paintings and songs. This new work ‘Continuum’ tells visual and vernacular tales of the land and sea and of human connection and history. It is a fusion of Kerr’s creative energies into one entity to create a unique visual and sound experience for audience and performers. These dynamic paintings vividly depict scenes from a new series of songs and they will be exhibited and performed on the night by some of Ireland’s leading singers and musicians.
A feast for the senses, ‘Continuum’ combines the best of modern Irish folk song with evocative oil paintings to create an extraordinary journey into the artist’s creative well.
