This six-member Chicago-based chamber ensemble’s mission is to move music forward through innovative performance. Olagón, a conflicted wail of both mourning and victory, is the central inspiration of this new evening-length collaboration between Eighth Blackbird, composer/fiddler Dan Trueman, vocalist Iarla Ó Lionáird, and Pulitzer-Prize winning poet Paul Muldoon. This production is co-produced with Carlsen Center at Johnson County Community College and The Irish Center, Kansas City.

This performance was cancelled.
