Backstage Theatre Longford will host evening of spoken word and live music as part of Poetry Ireland tour.

Ireland Is will shine a light on the multifaceted and contradictory Ireland of today.

The evening will feature a line-up of acclaimed poets, including Longford’s own Felispeaks, Colm Keegan, Hollie McNish, Danez Smith, and Erin Fornoff, as well as a special guest performance by singer-songwriter Bridie Monds-Watson alias SOAK.


The event forms part of Poetry Ireland’s ‘Ireland Is’ spoken word tour, which brings Keegan, Felispeaks, McNish, Smith and Fornoff together with musicians in Dublin, Limerick, Cork, Galway and Longford this autumn.
