‘The Wife of Michael Cleary’ is a musical in development inspired by the true and haunting story of Bridget Cleary. It brings together folklore, trad Irish music and a story of women’s resilience.
I’ve been composing and developing this musical for a few years now, and I’m so delighted you’ll be able to hear some of the music, performed live by Brendan O’Rourke, Faoileann Cunningham and our fantastic band: Ruairi Glasheen, Nicola Lyons, Philippe Barnes, Ria Nolan, David Delarre and Imogen Gunner.
Thanks to Arts Council England, The EFDSS, Liverpool Irish Festival and Britten Pears Arts for making this possible
