Bird on the Wire: The songs of Leonard Cohen

Show on Thursday, 23 November 2023, 8.00pm
at HAWK'S WELL THEATRE, SLIGO
Bird On The Wire, a collaborative interpretation of The Leonard Cohen Songbook by singer Pauline Scanlon, Galway band The Whileaways and their band of joy, returns with their new show.

Pauline Scanlon and The Whileaways will celebrate many of Cohen’s best-loved life works. They lead a masterful collective including Will Merrigan on bass, Dave Clancy on keys, Beoga legend Eamon Murray on drums, together with strings and brass sections.

Pauline Scanlon galvanized the Irish music scene with her stunning debut album, Red Colour Sun, over ten years ago. As a solo artist and as a member of vocal duo LUMIERE, Scanlon has entranced audiences the world over with her distinctly delicate intensity.Pauline has performed and recorded with a wide range of artists including DamienDempsey, Sinéad O’Connor, John Spillane and is a member of several high profile groups including Dónal Lunny’s Atlantic Arc Orchestra. Scanlon has presented several music-based Television programmes for both the BBC and TG4 in recent years and released her latest album ‘Gossamer’in 2016 to critical acclaim.

The Whileaways are three powerful forces in Irish roots music, Noelie McDonnell, Noriana Kennedy and Nicola Joyce combine to create a beguiling tapestry of harmonies, tradition and beautifully crafted original songs. Their sound is simply captivating, enthralling live audiences and securing their firm footing in roots music both in Ireland and internationally.
