Today at 4pm, Sunday 9th August 2015, the Yeats Thoor Ballylee Society hosts a benefit concert for the permanent restoration of Thoor Ballylee. Featuring music, poetry and the spoken word, all inspired and drawn from the works of W.B. Yeats, the concert takes place in Yeats’s iconic tower. Listen as Joseph Sobol, master guitarist and performer on a rare 10-string Sobell cittern, alongside vocals by Kathy Cowan, performs a ‘mystic cabaret’ described by the Chicago Sun-Times as ‘rapturous’ and ‘irresistible’. Come along to see the tower resound with musical echoes, and support Yeats Thoor Ballylee Society in its ongoing efforts to restore and reopen the tower permanently.
