Rock fiddler Steve Wickham of The Waterboys, joins actor Karl Quinn to playfully explore our recent experiences with the joy of music, and the whisper of hope, as we catch our breath together.
One man is just about holding it together with the family working and studying at home, but one sneeze could blow it all apart.
Steve Wickham combines classical, folk and rock on fiddle, concertina, and didgeridoo -played like never before! He previously worked with director Ciarán Taylor and Carpet Theatre actor Karl Quinn on Pigeon, and Wexford Firestation Tour.
‘perpetual, mesmerising rhythm, …riveting and unnerving.'
