This year’s IndieCork offer is two documentaries highlighting the power of the Irish ballad, in a programme they’ve called The Power of the Song.
The first of the two-show programme (Sun 23 and Mon 24 Oct) is Dark Horse On The Wind (Dir. Myles O’Reilly, Ireland, 2022, 90 mins).
A documentary on the life and songs of the late traditional ballad singer Liam Weldon, the film comprises recently discovered archive footage; stories from family, friends and admirers and features interviews and performances from Radie Peat (Lankum), Damien Dempsey, Lisa O’Neill, Daoiri Farrell and others.
This event contributes to the Family, Nook and Cranny Spaces and Heritage strands of the Festival’s work. ❤️📍🔱
