Next Thursday in the Abbey Tavern at 9pm Ann Riordan hosts a special night for the HSC.
Singer and collector Jane Cassidy (Belfast) will launch Howth Singing Circle’s Young Singer in Residence Ruth Clinton’s “This Fearless Maid”, a booklet of songs recovered and annotated by Ruth. The songs, written before 1950, feature women in unusual and different ways than in many songs where women feature as unrequited lovers, grieving mothers or sweethearts, or as objects of desire. We are proud of Ruth’s diligence, imagination and meticulous research that has produced a special publication. She will sing some of the songs on the night.
So, please come along and celebrate the conclusion of our first Young Singer in Residence project and support Ruth in her endeavours.
May we also take this opportunity to thank so many of you who came along to make the Martyn Wyndham-Read and Gatehouse concert such a memorable night. A standing ovation speaks volumes but all the artists commented on the warmth and knowledgeable support they felt coming from the large attendance. From all at the HSC, sincere thanks to you all
