Common Grounds Collective is delighted to announce a return to the Poet & the Player. Following a packed show in Whelan's last summer we've remade and improved and are ready for what promises to be something even more spine-tinglingly magical. 

The Poet & The Player is a pairing of traditional and newly-hewn melodies, prose & poetry which have been written & brought together especially for the night. 
Featuring some of the highest regarded traditional musicians in the country such as Alannah Thornburgh, Jason McGuinness & Navy Cut alongside some of the incredible poets Common Grounds has stumbled across over the last two years. The night will weave two strands of Ireland's rich artistic tradition into a stream of never-before performed works. 

Tickets are €8 (excl. booking fee) and can be purchased below.
