She Moved Through The Fair: The Legend of Margaret Barry

With Mary McPartlan, Lisa Knapp, Gerry Diver, Gillian Horgan, Luke MacLeod and Colin Irwin.

Norma Waterson likened her to Bessie Smith, Billie Holiday and Edith Piaf; Bob Dylan said she was his favourite folk singer; and Van Morrison called her ‘a real soul singer’…Margaret Barry was extraordinary. Born in Cork on January 1, 1917 she left home at 16 with nothing but a bicycle and a banjo tied to her back with string as she set off to busk her way through the harsh streets of Ireland. What happened next is part of folk music legend.

Written by music journalist Colin Irwin and Irish singer Mary McPartlan and including many of her most famous songs like Bold Fenian Men, Factory Girl and Galway Shawl, She Moved Through The Fair uses dialogue based on direct interviews with many of the colourful characters who shared her adventures in a musical drama that is both poignant and funny. Debuted at Celtic Connections festival last year to wide acclaim, this is the first time the show will be performed in the city where Barry spent many of her vintage years.

Performing on the night will be Mary McPartlan, Lisa Knapp, Gerry Diver, Gillian Horgan, Luke MacLeod and Colin Irwin.
