About Colin Dunne
“★★★★★ Warm, funny, respectful and irreverent”
—The Irish Times
Created by Colin Dunne in collaboration with Sinéad Rushe and Mel Mercier.
Virtuoso traditional Irish fiddle player Tommie Potts’ (1912-1988) iconic 1972 album The Liffey Banks, the only recording of his music commercially released in his lifetime, is heralded for its melancholy and mischief. Many also consider its elusive rhythms unfit for dance.
Armed with an LP, tape recorder, portable speakers and sheets of flooring, celebrated dance artist Colin Dunne sets out to confront this controversial album with a style as evocative and idiosyncratic as Potts’ own.
