Listings at The Model during Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann

Jack B. Yeats: The Music Has Come
10 August – 18
The Model is delighted to present an exhibition of work by Jack B Yeats that looks at music as a key device in his painting. Throughout his working life Yeats had a strong interest in music – particularly colloquial song that aimed to stir political or patriotic sentiment in the listener. Yeats often sought to capture some of this sentiment in his work, and The Music has Come will consider some of his finest paintings as direct responses to the vernacular music of his day.

Nora Mc Guinness: The Stories Of Red Hanrahan
10 August – 18
On the occasion of Fleadh Cheoil na hEireann, The Model is delighted to present An exhibition of McGuinness’s illustrations of WB Yeats’ much loved collection of stories.

No Meadows in Manhattan by Brian Leyden & Musician Brian Conway
13 August @ 1:15 pm – 2:00 pm
No Meadows in Manhattan is Brian Leyden’s account of how his American relations came ‘home on holiday’ every Summer at the height of the hay saving and the O’Carolan Festival, and lifted his family out of their workaday lives with their enthusiasm for the ‘old country’, the music and the craic; gracing his childhood summers with a note of emigrant heartache and joy.
