Welcome to the Sutton House Music Society

A Weave of Words and Music

with Marj McDaid and Tell Tale Tusk

Marj McDaid has lived in Stoke Newington for nearly 40 years, and has made several appearances at the Opera Cabaret and given poetry readings for the Stoke Newington Festival. As a vocal coach she has worked on many productions at the Arcola Theatre, for Out of Joint and in the West End. Her CD of Irish songs with harpist Rodhri Davies raised over £5k for the hospices in Hackney and Derry, her home town.

In this insightful, lively and personal selection she will read Irish poetry from the 6th to the 21st century, leavened with songs (some traditional, some her own settings) including vocal and instrumental contributions from the exciting young group Tell Tale TuskClever, witty and deep”. Alongside work by Damian Gorman, Seamus Heaney, Patrick Kavanagh, Eavan Boland etc, Marj will include some recently published poems by friends – the whole reflecting aspects of Irish identity.
