Young Blood: The Beats and Voices of Our Generation – National Concert Hall – 18th March
When the rhythms, the musings and the mutterings of a young Irish generation intertwine it’s bound to be one of those special nights you just have to witness.
Young Blood will meander through the genres of hip hop and spoken word in what promises to be a powerful collective performance of Ireland’s smartest, expressive young musicians, rappers and poets. Curated by Aoife Woodlock, Music Producer of Other Voices, the line up includes: RTÉ Choice Music Prize nominees, Rusangano Family, Dublin’s soul pop rappers, Hare Squead, named in NME’s top ten BEST new bands to watch for in 2017, Kojey Radical (UK), nominated for two MOBO awards in 2016 and credited for his explosive live shows and subversive storytelling ability.
Dublin poet Stephen James Smith’s response to a spoken word commission on the Festival’s theme Ireland You Are ….. inspired Young Blood. Smith is central to the rise of the vibrant spoken word genre in Ireland today. His passionate delivery of epic new poem My Ireland, most recently performed at the Oscar Wilde Awards in LA, is something not to be missed.
Smith is joined by poets: Abby Oliveria; the formidable Emmet Kirwan (Heartbreak, Dublin Oldschool, RIOT); Colm Keegan, John Cummins; 16 year old Natalya O’ Flaherty; Felispeaks and Sarah Clancy. Vocalist and musician Katie Laffan completes the stellar line up, although expect more surprises on the night!
Young Blood will amplify the voice of a generation!!
