Motherland : Songs Of 20th Century Women

Antelope Productions Presents MOTHERLAND : Songs of 20th Century Women Performed by Edel Murphy (Celtic Woman, Riverdance) & live band. Featuring evocative projected images alongside thought-provoking spoken word, Edel Murphy performs iconic songs of struggle and celebration from such songwriting greats as Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Nina Simone, Kate Bush, Nanci Griffith, Dolly Parton, and The Beatles. Following extensive tours with Grammy winning shows Celtic Woman and Riverdance, Edel Murphy – singer, actor and musician – and live band bring you through the Dustbowl of the Great Depression, into the homes of 1950s urban desperation, down streets of protest in the 1960s and into the tumult of the 21st Century.
