Robert O’Connor: River Songs
“Expect spine-tingling moments when Robert takes you on a journey through his repertoire of river songs. His voice is a rich baritone marvel.”
– Festival Director.
River Songs is that little known thing – a love letter to the Liffey… and other rivers. Wander through the meadow down towards the Liffey bank and discover one of Ireland’s most charismatic singers as he takes you on a musical journey. From the Liffey to the Nile, baritone Robert O’Connor has crafted a song cycle that combines effortless melody with humorous charm. Life belt not required.
