River Man: The Nick Drake Project

Fear na hAbhann: Tionscadal Nick Drake

Nick Drake was unique and his achingly beautiful songs owed as much to the bucolic tradition of Vaughan Williams as the blues.  At the time of his tragic death in 1974, he had only released three albums - Five Leaves Left, Bryter Lyter and Pink Moon.
 
His lyrics were infused with the moods of 19th-Century Romantic poetry and explored themes of love, yearning and self-identity. Fear na hAbhann/River Man takes us into "an infinity of autumns" with Drake’s songs performed by Liam Ó Maonlaí (vocals, piano), Neil Martin (cello), and Peter O'Toole (guitar). 
 
The lyrics have been transcreated into Irish by Gabriel Rosenstock with screen projections by Margaret Lonergan
Produced by IMRAM Irish Language Literature Festival. Funded by the Arts Council and Foras na Gaeilge. 
Duine ar leith ab ea Nick Drake agus na hamhráin áille thochtmhara aige ag éirí as traidisiún búcólach Vaughan Williams chomh maith leis na gormacha. Faoin am ar cailleadh go tragóideach é sa bhliain 1974, ní raibh ach trí albam eisithe aige, Five Leaves Left, Bryter Lyter agus Pink Moon
 
Bhí dathanna le sonrú ar a chuid liricí a mheabhródh meon na bhfilí Rómánsacha ón 19ú haois déag duit agus é ag déileáil le téamaí an ghrá, an tnútháin agus an fhéinaitheantais. Tabharfaidh Fear na hAbhann/ River Man sinn isteach "i bhfómhair na síoraíochta" agus amhráin Drake á gcur i láthair ag Liam Ó Maonlaí (guth, pianó), Neil Martin (dordveidhil) agus Peter O'Toole (giotár). 
 
Gabriel Rosenstock a thraschruthaigh na liricí i nGaeilge. Margaret Lonergan a theilgfidh na híomhánna. 
Arna léiriú ag IMRAM Féile Litríochta Gaeilge. Arna mhaoiniú ag an gComhairle Ealaíon/ The Arts Council agus Foras na Gaeilge.
