Running Beast
Music by Michael Holohan
Text by Donal O’Kelly
A historical chamber-orchestra trad-rap!

Hugh O’Neill, Earl of Tyrone (1550-1616), as you’ve never imagined him before! Dubbed “Running Beast” by Queen Elizabeth’s court, he hurtles through his tempestuous life and his war against Tudor rule in Ireland. Accompanied by an eight-piece band!

Performed by Donal O’Kelly
Uilleann pipes: Mick O’Brien
String quartet: Maire Breatnach
Steve Larkin
Simone Mendonca
Diane O’Keeffe
Double Bass: Dan Bodwell
Percussion: Robbie Harris
Keyboard: Michael Holohan

“O’Kelly’s vividly colourful text, full of battle, political skullduggery and racy courtship, fits hand in glove with Holohan’s suggestive and evocative musicianship to produce a perfectly tailored evening”. DAILY MAIL

“A striking portrait of a striking man .. superb .. Holohan’s score is wonderful .. richly haunting .. wonderfully evocative”. SUNDAY TRIBUNE
