Song of Granite

Song of Granite
Drama, Biography | 2017
NR. 1hr 44min CAST: Michael O'Chonfhlaola, Macdara O Fatharta, Leni Parker, Colm Seoighe DIRECTOR: Pat Collins TUESDAY FILM SERIES

Enigmatic and complex, Joe Heaney was one of the greats of traditional Irish singing (sean nos). Shaped by the myths, fables, and songs of his upbringing in the west of Ireland, his emergence as a gifted artist came at a personal cost. Featuring performances from Colm Seoighe, Macdara O Fatharta, Jaren Cerf, Lisa O'Neill, Damien Dempsey, and sean nos singers Micheal O Chonfhaola and Pol O Ceannabhain, and beautiful black and white cinematography, SONG OF GRANITE is a distinct portrait of Heaney's life and a marvelous exploration of music and song.

Reviews
For an artist whose work in a proud and robust tradition carried a recognizable grace, Song of Granite is a stirring, solemn tribute.
Steve Greene, indieWire
A work of genius.
Paddy Kehoe, RTE (Ireland)
Uses an impressionistic, avant-garde style to capture the essence of Joe Heaney, who is considered Ireland's greatest 20th century singer in the sean nos, "old style."
