LIVE MUSIC & PERFORMANCE: Seamas Carey
Fri 28 April 2017, 19:30 – 21:00 BST
Seamas Carey returns to HAY STUDIO with a new critically-acclaimed show, first performed at Newlyn Art Gallery in 2016.
Seamas Carey presents a strange evening of heartwarming and ridiculous songs; plus a dancing choir, time travel, nostalgia probing, rave music and tap dancing.
One day Seamas Carey found an old cassette tape in the back of his car, on which he discovered recordings of himself as a 4 year old boy, telling stories and singing his heart out. He knew then that he had to do something with these artefacts of posterity and drag them into the present day. The end result is 60 minutes of remixed and recomposed songs, arranged for a choir whilst Seamas plays piano, talks about growing up and occasionally dances.
Suitable for anyone who is a child, or has been a child.
