Song Of Granite

SONG OF GRANITE is a critically acclaimed, lyrical and unconventional account of the life of the complex and enigmatic Joe Heaney, one of the greats of traditional sean-nós singing. Shaped by the myths, fables and songs of his upbringing in the west of Ireland in the early 1900s, this film charts Heaney’s emergence as a gifted artist and how his career success came at a personal cost as he journeyed from rural Connemara, through to Glasgow and eventually on to New York City. Song of Granite is a distinct portrait of Heaney’s life and a universal exploration of the power of the human voice, directed by Pat Collins.
