About the event


Christine Tobin - Returning Weather (UK premiere)

"A singularly beautiful  sound-world which draws in elements from traditional Irish music, jazz  and contemporary classical in an entirely seamless way. (Jazzwise)    Christine Tobin's newest project, Returning Weather,  imaginatively weaves song, spoken word and a stellar group of musicians  from diverse disciplines together, with the live shows expanding upon  the material with additional spoken word passages and visual effects.    Returning Weather charts a journey which is part homecoming, part  memoir, inspired by Christine’s return to Ireland after many years  abroad and explores themes of finding home, dwelling and landscape,  reconnecting with a cultural background, reshaping a sense of identity  and belonging.    "Tobin’s vocals, veering from acrobatic to sultry, are tailored  perfectly for the material, her evocations of time and place precise.  Classy and lovely.” (★★★★ Independent)   Tobin was commissioned to write this evocative new song cycle by The  Dock Arts Centre, with an Arts Council of Ireland, Music Commissions  Award. All the words and compositions are by Christine, with the  exception of 'Still, Life' which a poem by Eva Salzman set to music by Tobin.    Christine Tobin vocals/compositions Aoife Ní Bhriain violin David Power uilleann pipes/whistles Phil Robson guitar/electronics Steve Hamilton piano
