Willard Straight Theatre
Ithaca Premiere 2017 > Ireland > Directed by Pat Collins
Get in the mood for St. Patty's Day with this great live music/film combo. Local band Traonach plays traditional Irish tunes and songs, and have hosted Ithaca's long-running Irish music session. They'll start performing at 6:45pm in advance of the 7:15pm screening of Song of Granite, about Joe Heaney. Enigmatic and complex, Heaney was one of the greats of traditional Irish singing (sean nós). Song of Granite is a distinct portrait of Heaney’s life and a marvelous exploration of music and song. “Modest in subject but ambitious in form, Song of Granite delivers a profile of not just a singer but the country that made him.” (Indiewire) Ireland's entry for Best Foreign Language Film Oscar consideration.
