Seamus Heaney once said that ‘The end of Art is Peace’.

Uncommon Wealth will premier on International Peace Day at Cavan County Museum, Ballyjamesduff.   This is a cross border celebration of the power of creativity to redeem, to mend, to save us from our more divisive instincts.  The newly formed Cavan County Choir will perform Art Hymns composed by artist John Byrne with soloist Ruth Kelly and conducted by renowned Director of Choral Music Blanaid Murphy with accompanist Sue King.

Speakers accompanying the performance are retired president of The Irish Countrywoman’s Association Mamo McDonald of County Monaghan, Belfast born author Brian Keenan, Cavan based Canadian born poet Heather Brett,  writer and comic Kevin McAleer, and Clones born author and journalist Darach McDonald. 

Uncommon Wealth will also be performed at Fermanagh County Museum Enniskillen as part of the Fermanagh Live Festival on 28 September at 8pm.
