I'M BRINGING MY HUSBAND!"  - Kris Lasher, 2017 Attendee

Following an amazing launch of the Music in the Mournes program in May, 2017, Krista Detor and Dr. Rod C. Taylor return to Ireland to explore the art of songwriting, essay and poetry through Irish literature and culture by way of traditional irish words and music. We discover the landscape, mythology and history of Ireland by way of the celebrated authors who have been directly influenced by the place: James Joyce, Sean O’Casey, Seamus Heany, and C.S. Lewis, who created the magical world of Narnia.

Through this interactive, immersive, interdisciplinary program, Krista Detor and Dr. Rod Taylor, along with a number of Ireland’s lauded writers, offer a unique and exciting experience through which participants will further develop their writing skills while also gaining a deeper understanding and appreciation of Irish culture and its enduring and far-reaching contribution to the arts.

Guest Artists have been Poets John MacKenna and Maurice Devitt, Songwriter Colum Sands, and Vocalist Amanda Biggs
