Young imaginations will be captivated by this gorgeous music performance, created and performed by Fiona Kelleher for ages 2-5.
Enter a gentle musical world full of songs to delight, soothe and comfort. Fiona has drawn on her traditional Irish music roots to write this collection of songs for younger ears, with simple and accessible lyrics and beautiful melodies.
This performance will take place at The New Theatre (43 Essex Street East, Temple Bar) as part of BIG BANG Dublin! 2020.
A singer, performer, composer and music graduate from UCC, Fiona has recorded and performed extensively in her career. Her highly acclaimed album, “My Love Lies,” is a collection of folk and Irish traditional songs that speak to her background in traditional music and her love of the Irish language.
Since 2010, she has been a lead artist in the BEAG programme for Early Years, and has released a collection of new songs, “I am a Little Boat,” which launched at The Ark in 2013. She has also written music for three Early Years theatre productions with Graffiti Theatre, Cork. She has received bursary awards (2013/2016) from the Arts Council, as well as Cork City and County Council (2010/2014/2016), both for community projects in collaboration with artists of other disciplines as well as solo projects. She is very interested in collaboration as a source of inspiration that informs her practice. She continues to learn through her work in community settings and as a composer.
The Ark's exciting international music festival for young audiences, BIG BANG returns for its second year in Dublin with more outstanding music performances and intriguing installations from Ireland and abroad. Fri 3rd to Sun 5th April. See the full festival programme here.
