Sligo Jazz Project, Hawk’s Well Theatre and the Yeats International Summer School join to present a celebration of W. B. Yeats in words and music from Christine Tobin, Irish singer-songwriter, composer and award winning jazz vocalist. Christine won a British Composer Award for the euphonic and sensitive setting of Yeat’s poetry, which brings the lyrical magic of his work to life.

“In this beautiful collection of songs based on the poetry of WB Yeats, vocalist Christine Tobin has created an unqualified masterpiece….(she) perfectly gauges the emotional and spiritual resonances of the texts, aided by performances of incredible subtlety and understatement.” Jazzwise **** Recommended
