Introducing The Crankie Island Song Project: an artistic archive of stories and songs from Ireland’s rich musical tradition. Celebrated singer Cathy Jordan, of traditional powerhouse Dervish, brings these tales to life with music, sound, and visuals, preserving them for future generations. Using a ‘Crankie box’—a unique storytelling device with scrolling illustrations—this project beautifully marries song and art. Featuring a selection from an archive of  32 songs, one from each county in Ireland, the Crankie Island Project is a musical atlas of the island, highlighting themes of love, loss, rebellion, and revelry. Join Cathy and her virtuostic musical ensemble as part of their nationwide tour this October, blending haunting melodies with captivating visuals for an unforgettable experience. The show will showcase a specially commissioned scrolling illustration by Kildare Native, Gráinne Bath Enright.
