Inspired by the works of W.B. Yeats and other great Irish poets, Ancient Rain combines the spoken word with a  song-cycle of new compositions. Kelly and O’Sullivan,  both mesmerising performers, inhabit a range of diverse  characters as they reveal a tapestry of themes, from the cost  of love and the price of independence to the inadequacy of faith and the power of forgiveness.

Ancient Rain sees O’Sullivan’s majestic vocal command unite with Kelly’s understated yet evocative lyricism here in the  service of stories of love, loss and redemption.
