This weekend I had the pleasure to shoot at the Spirit of Folk launch at Whelan’s: “we are made of stars stuff”. It was a fantastic night full of talks and great music form Bunoscionn, Carriages, Leading Armies and Stephen James.
The night was a glimpse of the forthcoming festival in Dunderry Park, which runs from 19th – 21st September. The theme of the night was ‘We are made of Star Stuff’, a quote from cosmologist Carl Sagan. The focus of the talks was on exploring people’s potential and inspire them to dream big and have the courage to take action.
The Music performance
The talks were followed by a great musical lineup of acts: Stephen James, Carriages, Leading Armies and Bunoscionn; who performed their very special ‘Trad side of the Moon’ a folk version of Pink Floyd’s most famous album. Whelans was transformed into a flickering night time light show with music and conversation going on late into the night!
