The spirit of ÉRIU, the goddess of Ireland, will permeate the hallowed halls of IMMA on the eve of St. Patrick’s Day, 16th March, as Body&Soul celebrates our heritage with a contemporary take on an age-old Irish tradition. Body&Soul has announced more acts for ÉRIU, their St. Patrick’s Eve Celebration in IMMA. LAMB, Jape and Jennifer Evans have just been added to the lineup of this carefully curated evening of music, visual art and cuisine that celebrates our heritage with a contemporary take on an age-old Irish tradition.

LAMB’s innovative sound, a distinctive mix of trip-hop, jazz, dub, breaks and drum and bass with haunting vocals will reverberate throughout the 17th Century Great Hall of IMMA as the concluding explosive performance of the night. The prolific Richie Egan aka Jape will bring his alternative rock and electronic overtones with tracks from his fifth album ‘This Chemical Sea’ to the evening while the sublime and distinctive sounds of one rising-star vocalist Jennifer Evans will fill the Baroque Chapel.

They join R.S.A.G, The Máirtin O’Connor Band and Katie Kim in highlighting contemporary Ireland’s cultural vibrancy. Much acclaimed and respected ‘muso’ Donal Dineen will curate the Baroque Chapel, showcasing the range and depth of musical talent in Ireland right now with four emerging acts including Subplots, Margie Lewis, and Landless while Tonie Walsh quakes the Royal Hospital’s foundations in The Vaults with some heady, sweaty electronica.

New and established artists, live performances and bespoke visuals by Guerrilla Shout will enliven the night which starts with a very limited capacity, two-course Wild Irish feast in The Vaults, expertly prepared by Katie Sanderson (Living Dinners, Dillisk) and Keith Coleman (The Fumbally Café). These widely celebrated chefs will add their modern culinary magic to traditional Irish dishes.

Outside, the 20ft giant Macnas Hare, a stunningly beautiful, light-filled installation, will take residence in IMMA’s courtyard for the evening. Inspired by the poet Seamus Heaney who translated the poem “the names of the hare” from Middle English, the calligraphric inscription along the back of the hare was added after the poet’s untimely passing. It is an extract from his poem Lightenings VIII and is directly painted onto the image.
