“Modest in subject but ambitious in form, Song of Granite delivers a profile of not just a singer but the country that made him.”
— Indiewire

Irish Premiere
Q&A

Song of Granite revolves around the life of the great traditional Irish singer, Joe Heaney. The harsh landscape combined with the myths, fables and songs of his Connemara childhood helped shape this complex and fascinating character. Enigmatic and complex, Heaney’s devotion to his art came at huge personal cost.
