The Wonders of the Wake with Kevin Toolis

The Wonders of the Wake is a totally unique Irish Trad Arts show that revives the ancient Irish art of keening with our hauntingly beautiful Mná Caointe on stage to celebrate the wonders of the Irish Wake and bring a tear to the eye and joy to the heart. There is Sean Nós singing, Celtic laments, harp solos and another unique revival - bardic poetry. Yeats and Homer all take a turn on stage too. The Wonders of the Wake is the best wake you’ll ever go to but just right there on stage in front of you.

 Wonders of the Wake is collaboration between the beloved Irish singer Niamh Parsons, the world renowned harpist Joleen McLaughlin and her sisters Karen and Lorna  McLaughlin of the Henry Girls and the BAFTA winning writer Kevin Toolis. Wonders of the Wake is based on acclaimed writer Kevin Toolis’ bestselling book My Father’s Wake: How the Irish Teach Us to Live, Love and Die,
