Even though our doors are currently closed the show still goes on. We have teamed up with the Earagail Arts Festival to present Little John Nee’s The Tilt of the Sky tour from 21 to 25 July 2020.

We have commissioned renowned performer Little John Nee to take a tour of seven Donegal villages and towns (Malin, Culdaff, Raphoe, Letterkenny, Dunfanaghy, Gort an Choirce, Rathmullan) for a series of pop-up solo performances.

The lockdown allowed us all time to contemplate what was really important to us while at the same time putting a stop to any rambling.

For Little John Nee rambling is as important as anything and the hankering was growing stronger every day of the lockdown. So it is with a skittish exuberance beneath the tilt of the sky he takes the long road from Malin to Rathmullan creating fresh adventure along the way through song, story and throwing shapes.

In Rathmullan for the finale of the six day adventure Little John will perform for the first time “Blues Boy on Batt’s Walk” a musical spoken word climax to an evening of song and story that conjures a teenage Don Quixote camping at Kinnegar 1976 that opens with the line …“I was sixteen now I’m sixty”. It will also be broadcast live on Highland Radio.

With sincere thanks to McGrorys Hotel, Dillons Hotel, Corcreggan Mill and the Station House Hotel for their support of this tour.
