The Bluecoat: Joyce in June: Summer Songs with Johnny Kennedy

23 June


James Joyce set his masterpiece, Ulysses, on the day in June that he’d first walked out with love of his life, Nora Barnacle. It has become a tradition to celebrate the author’s work at this time of year – and not only in Ireland. At the Bluecoat, acclaimed operatic tenor Johnny Kennedy performs a selection of favourites associated with the author, who could play piano and guitar and had a fine tenor voice, and whose writings abound with musical references, from parlour ballads to grand opera.
