I’m looking forward to taking part in Miscellany50, a celebratory radio festival weekend of short writing and music produced to salute fifty years of Sunday Miscellany, the RTÉ Radio 1 programme. Five concerts at the Project Arts Centre, Dublin, will each capture a decade between 1968 and 2018. I chose my birth year, 1970, and my essay ‘Mother Moon’ is about the moon and the Apollo 13 mission.
Miscellany50’s concerts will be recorded and produced for broadcast on RTÉ Radio 1 in 2019.
Here’s the line-up for the concert I will take part in:
Friday 7 December, 7.30pm
John Bowman, Mae Leonard, John Boland, Nuala O’Connor, Leo Cullen, Denise Blake, Louis de Paor, Gerald Dawe, Evelyn Conlon, Denis Sexton and Gemma Tipton, Contempo String Quartet, Richie Buckley, Máire Ní Chéilleachair and Jennifer Walshe.
