GIG OF THE WEEK

Treaty: Songs
Saturday, December 11th, National Concert Hall, Dublin, 8pm, €20 in person/€10 livestream, nch.ie
In December 1921, a group of representatives gathered at the NCH’s Kevin Barry Rooms to debate the Anglo-Irish Treaty. Now, 100 years later, some of Ireland’s leading lights of music are gathering at the venue to perform songs inspired by the treaty debates and other related events. John Spillane, Karan Casey, Gemma Dunleavy, Maija Sofia, Duke Special, Lisa O’Neill, Jonathan Nangle, Crash Ensemble and special guest Christy Moore will perform new works interpreting this pivotal moment in Irish history, which still resonates in Irish life today. The event is part of the Decade of Centenaries 2012-2023 programme, supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media. If you’re still not comfortable attending in person, the event will be livestreamed so you can enjoy at home.
