Performance Poetry goes Live, Wild and Nationwide with Dave Lordan and Elaine Feeney
Writers and performers Dave Lordan and Elaine Feeney are to tour their much anticipated new books with their Where’s the Sacrifice? tour over the summer months.
Lordan and Feeney are both award winning writers and stars of Ireland’s exploding live poetry and cabaret scene.
Lordan’s book Invitation to a Sacrifice is the follow up to his acclaimed debut The Boy in the Ring which won both the Kavanagh and Strong Awards for poetry, the first book to do so. Feeney, who won the coveted Cuirt Festival Slam in 2008, releases Where’s Katie?, her debut collection.
Both are renowned for the passion, energy, and humour of their live shows. Their dual tour promises to be one of the most popular and enjoyable live literature events of the summer.
Shows are to take place in Galway, Dublin, Greystones, Dundalk, Cork, Clonakilty, Limerick, Tralee, and at the Electric Picnic Festival. See Poster for details.
