Ancient Pulsing (Poetry with Music)
Tommy Makem, known as the modern day Bard of Armagh, was regarded around the world as 'the Godfather' of Irish music. Armed with his banjo, tinwhistle, poetry, stagecraft and his magnificent baritone voice, Tommy mesmerized audiences for more than five decades. He died in 2007 having helped to reshape Irish music and culture throughout the latter half of the 20th century. Many of his original songs have become standards in the Irish folk world.
