Event description

Description

Without Safety Net is a special evening of performances featuring the first three Seamus Heaney Centre Fellows, Doireann Ní Ghríofa, Duke Special and Jo Baker.

The fellowships were created in a spirit of collaboration and experimentation, a simple desire to see what happens when you give three writers the opportunity to work for a semester with students, and with each other.

The format of this event has been left entirely to the Fellows themselves. The stage is theirs, the anticipation ours.

Anything is possible in the presence of such talent, as 120 people are about to discover. Be one of them.


Doireann NI Ghríofa - is a bilingual writer whose poems have appeared in Poetry, The Irish Times, Poetry Ireland Review, The Stinging Fly, The Irish Examiner and elsewhere. http://www.doireannnighriofa.com/About.html

Duke Special - is a piano based songwriter whose distinct voice and theatrical style performances make possible a vast repetoire, from alternative rock, baroque pop, chamber pop to folk and soul. Mining a new seam of inspiration, he is always trying to get to the bottom of what it means to be human.

Jo Baker - is the author of six novels, most recently A Country Road, A Tree and Longbourn. Her novel Longbourn is due to be made into a film and her latest novel A Country Road, A Tree, is inspired by the life of Samuel Beckett.
