This year at the Glebe we are presenting a series of Sunday evening sessions under the sail in our courtyard, where you can enjoy food, wine and music.
For our first installment, we are excited to announce The Starling Song Project, a collaborative songwriting project with the elderly in health care settings. On this very special night Liz Clark, accompanied by Deirdre Archbold, Christine Deady, Paula K O'Brien will be bringing songs written with words shared by older people throughout hospitals in West Cork, Ireland.
In 2012, Liz was given the opportunity to write songs in hospital settings with groups of older patients along with her colleague, visual artist Tess Leak. Organised by the Arts For Health Partnership Programme, a Skibbereen based organisation, she was asked to collect the stories of participants from hospitals and turn them into song. The results were remarkable.
Liz visited five West Cork hospitals and over time gained the confidence of some very vulnerable people and collected their stories. Together they wrote and sang their songs in hospitals and events across West Cork.
This event is not to be missed!
