Bealtaine presents an evening of words and music with Niall Williams reading from his novel accompanied by East Clare virtuoso musicians Christy McNamara (accordion & concertina). Niall Williams’ novel, This is Happiness, was one of the great literary successes of 2019. Set in County Clare during the time of rural electrification, it is a musical, evocative, rhapsodic and deeply moving work. Two of the main characters in the novel go on a quest to find the legendary (real life) fiddle player Junior Crehan.
