The Circle Sessions presents Tales Vs Tunes
MAYNOOTH MUSIC ACADEMY | Aug 11th
Common Grounds are in cahoots with The Circle Session collective to bring you Tales vs Tunes
Have you ever wondered who would win in a fight between a musician and a poet? Tales Vs. Tunes is a competition between musicians and spoken word artists to finally determine which is superior - Music or spoken word! In this context, spoken word covers pros, poetry and comedy. Each performer gets the same 2 words and they must create a brand new piece which use these words in some capacity. Musicians and spoken word artists are then paired off in a versus format in the live show, with the winner being decided by public vote. The only difference in format between our weekly version and our tour version is that the winner of each individual battle will not be revealed, only the score of #TeamTales and #TeamTunesat the end of the night!
