Traditional Irish music with world influences, in a relaxed environment.

The first ever relaxed performance at Band on the Wall, this is a fun and interactive musical experience in a welcoming environment, with plenty of opportunities for participation or just to sit and listen.

Open to everyone, but particularly appropriate for anyone who may find the usual gig environment challenging.

One of folk music’s rising stars, Emma’s unique style combines her trad Irish background with a fusion of world influences. Supported by Ben Cashell (Cello), Dom Kane (Guitar & Vocals) and Pete Mitchell (Percussion).

This relaxed performance is suitable for children and adults with autism, sensory and communication impairments and learning disabilities as well as individuals who are deaf, hard of hearing, blind and partially sighted.

Produced in collaboration with Brighter Sound and Band on the Wall and supported by Manchester City Council, the show will feature visual cues, audio description and British Sign Language interpretation.

There will be a relaxed attitude to movement and noise. You can move about, dance, sing or just listen. ‘Chill-out’ spaces in the Picturehouse are available.
