I’d a lovely time in the studio on Saturday, chatting to local artist Christopher Banahan about a pop up exhibition at his house next weekend. There will be lots of artwork to celebrate the Cruinniu na mBad Festival which takes place in Kinvara on 19/20th August. And Kinvara FM 92.4fm will be live at the pier. We hope to remain dry!
Also on this podcast, a poem from Anne Tannam’s most recent collection: ‘Tides Shifting Across My Living Room Floor’, published by Salmon Poetry. Find out more here.
Hope you enjoy the mix of music! Comments and requests are always welcome.
Yes, I’m heading back. To the house, the lake, the lovely staff and – if the vibes are all aligned – perhaps a meeting with Miss Worby, the resident ghost.
I’ll be redrafting and making the final push towards my first collection: This Little World.
The dreaded lurgy has been getting me down for the past few days, but the antibiotics are kicking in and I can’t wait to get up to Annaghmakerrig. (For more about this wonderful artists’ residence, have a look at Forward! Retreat! – Part the Second on my Writer’s Blog above.)
Now, I must away to pack my books, notebooks, and chocolate. Lots of chocolate.
