Music & Storytelling

By the Light of the Silvery Moon is a special evening of Irish stories for grown-ups - told through words and music by storyteller/Seanchaí Aindrias de Staic, with harpist Aisling Lyons and percussionist Brian Fleming.

Aindrias’ style is a fast paced, lively, new approach to the ancient Irish art form, yet his work is firmly rooted in the traditional storytelling styles of the west of Ireland.

Inspired by his work in folklore, nature, and the traditional arts, Aindrias brings us on a journey through tales of villages lost to the sea, misadventures of wandering musicians, folkloric myths, and of course his own, self-penned, outrageous tales of otherworldly events.

Strongly influenced by bards such as Raifteri an Fhíle, Brian Merriman and Aindrias MacCruitín - Aindrias and his rustic violin spin wild, outrageous, hilarious, and moving yarns from the roads of rural Ireland.

★★★★ "Aindrias is a state of mind . . . wild in eye and hair [he] is the whiskey that gives it a kick"
The Scotsman
"A pioneer in the revival of traditional storytelling. He breathes new life into the old tales – infusing them with musicality, rhythm and his unique insights on life"
Manchan Mangan
"He’s a waterboy Seanchaí, the pied piper of mischief. If he didn’t exist we’d have to invent him because the culture needs spirits like his, a wayward Irish fiddle playing dream talker“
Tommy Tiernan

Age recommendation: 16+
