On Friday 18 September, Culture Night 2020, ITMA and Clare Arts Office premiered a new film inspired by the music, song and dance of County Clare. This new work originated from a Creator-in-Residence scheme offered by ITMA and Clare Arts Office in 2018.

Interweaving the contemporary & archival, it features the voices & music of Martin Hayes, Geraldine Cotter, Caoilfhionn Ní Fhrighil, Claire Egan, Liam O'Brien, Siney Crotty, Paddy Canny, Willie Clancy and Jack Talty.

Maurice & Jack were on the red carpet on Culture Night in Glór, Ennis, Co. Clare when two screenings of the film followed by Q&A session were held in front of a live audience.

ITMA's role that evening was to open the door to a virtual audience and the film premiered at 5:30pm on ITMA social media platforms & website. 

We are delighted that the film remains freely available to view & enjoy since then.
