Language (English Subtitles)

Veteran musician and filmmaker Nick Kelly sets off to cycle from his home in Dublin to the Glastonbury Festival in Somerset, carrying all his gear on his bike and playing shows en route, to prove it’s possible to tour live music without driving. He’s accompanied by his long-suffering friend and musical partner Seán Millar, who tracks Nick’s progress by bus, and joins him onstage each night. The day they finally played Glastonbury Nick turned 60, officially outliving his famous politician father. So, while inspired by environmental concerns, The Song Cycle is also a story about other forms of sustainability too. A funny, moving and thought-provoking film about Mother Nature, Father Time and Brothers on the Road.
