There’s music everywhere. If there wasn’t, life would be intolerable. The birds sing opera and the bees hum along. The Glens Centre presents, in collaboration with Leitrim Sculpture Centre, a unique live art performance event as part of the Creative Counties project, funded by Creative Ireland.
Tin Tabernacle Tunes celebrates the immediacy of music; the way that random noises incline towards melody. Little John Nee has designed five sound stations/installations, with five stories, five songs and endless possibilities. He will perform throughout the two days, November 15th (5-8pm), 16th (11-4pm), with guest appearances from members of the Leitrim Men’s Group and plenty of room for audience participation. The “Tin Tabernacle” itself is a temple of rust containing “pentatonic” instruments that allow strangers who’ve never ever played an instrument come together and make sweet tunes.
Little John Nee is a playwright, performer and musician based in the west of Ireland. He is a recipient of an Irish Times Theatre Award for Sound Design, a Helen Hayes Nominee (Washington DC), a Prix Italia Special Mention Award and in 2016 was elected to Aosdána (honours artists whose work has made an outstanding contribution to the creative arts in Ireland)
