Ó Muirthile is Gabriel Rosenstock na haistritheoirí agus na hoirfidigh a chuirfidh inár láthair na seoda seo i dteannta an Mary Ryan Blues Group le Dick Farrelly (giotár); Dave Fleming (dord) agus Tim Creedon (cnaguirlisí). Teilgfidh Margaret Lonergan físeanna gormacha ar an scáileán.

Mar a scrígh Edward Comentale i Sweet Air: American Popular Song: 'The blues takes many forms... It is variously a feeling, a mood, a nameless threat, a person, a lover, a boss man, a mob, and, of course, the Devil himself… it can be used as both hex and counter hex, poison and antidote, pain and relief. Most importantly, the blues is both the cause of song, and song itself'.

Tonight IMRAM explores both blues poetry and song. Here are classic blues songs by Bessie Smith, John Lee Hooker, Blind Willie Mc Tell and Bille Holiday; and poems by Langston Hughes, Amiri Baraka (LeRoi Jones) and others. Translated by poets Liam Ó Muirthile and Gabriel Rosenstock, they will be performed by the poets themselves and by the Mary Ryan Blues Group, featuring Dick Farrely on guitar; Dave Fleming on bass; and Tim Creedon on percussion. This performance will feature screen projections by Margaret Lonergan.
