An evening of music to launch Grainne Milner-McLoone’s new albumThe Songs of Sam Henry, with an introduction by Joe Mahon.

The performance will be followed by discussions, refreshments and CD signing.

As a PhD researcher in English at Ulster University, local musician, and Northern Bridge Candidate, Grainne arranged and recorded a number of songs from Sam Henry’s Irish song archive as part of her collaborative PhD with the Causeway Coast and Glens Museum service.

Sam Henry was a folk song collector from Coleraine who, over a period of 30 years, collected what he called the ‘Songs of the People’ from various communities across Northern Ireland. The collection holds over 800 songs reflecting themes of place, home, and nature. Grainne’s album captures a number of these, chosen to highlight how both the landscape, and local tragedy can be expressed in folksong, revealing a unique sense of place for the people and communities in the North of Ireland. 

We look forward to welcoming you to discoverThe Songs of Sam Henry,and celebrate the music of our local communities.
