Join Cara Dillon for an exclusive performance showcasing a collection of poems written by her over the past few years. Accompanied by original music composed for each poem, she will be reading, singing and bringing to life personal memories of her native Co. Derry and the people and places she holds closest to her heart; revealing a newly found freedom to express herself within the tiniest of details and life's larger mysteries - exploring family, belonging, place and ancestry. 

VRï are Jordan Price Williams (cello, voice), Aneirin Jones (violin, voice) and Patrick Rimes (viola, violin, voice). These 3 young men come from deepest chapel-going Wales. They have mined the cultural upheaval of past centuries and drawn inspiration from the incredible story of a time when Wales’ traditional music and dance was suppressed by Methodist chapels, and, earlier, its language by the Act of Union. Expect 3-part harmonies, stunning fiddle playing and the unusual addition of cello forge the VRï sound that is totally unique.
