Book Launch: Maugherow, a much wilder place
January 10, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Book Launch – Maugherow, a much wilder place – As part of Tread Softly, the Bare Hazel is a new arts participation project launched
with the kind support of Creative Ireland. Writers work with groups of artists from both professional and community backgrounds from County Sligo to create a series of written, visual and musical responses to the landscape. I was asked to organise an event
commemorating Maugherow and proposed an overall vision of what this might entail: Music and song, written word and spoken, images captured by neighbours of Maugherow and environs responding to the land- and sea- and skyscapes that shape the community.
Surf and stone. Sun and storm. Flora and fauna. Hill and plain. Fossil and fort. Archaeology and folklore. Flock and herd. Wetland and pasture. Big house and cottage. Overflights of geese half the year. This bespoke multimedia event happened in Ellen’s Pub as part of Tread Softly 2019.
This book represents a snap shot of that work and a recording of the event will also be available shortly, via the Tread softly website.
