Motherland : Songs Of 20th Century Women Thursday 22nd April 2021 8pm

"An amazing show...Edel Murphy was stunning, the sharpness of her delivery was outstanding… I was blown away by it”. Dick O’Riordan, Sunday Business Post

Following extensive tours with Grammy winning shows 'Celtic Woman' and ‘Riverdance', Dublin born Edel Murphy – singer, actor and musician – is delighted to bring this powerful and enlightening production to the Playhouse under the musical direction of her long-time collaborator, Ewan Cowley. 

Edel Murphy and live band bring you through the Dustbowl of the Great Depression, into the homes of 1950s urban desperation, down streets of protest in the 1960s and into the confusion of the 21st Century. 

Featuring evocative projected images alongside thought-provoking spoken word, Edel Murphy performs iconic songs of struggle and celebration from such songwriting greats as Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Nina Simone, Kate Bush, and The Beatles.
