Song of Granite

The life story of traditional sean-nos singer Joe Heaney, from County Galway, Ireland. This film 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 a huge personal cost. By the time of his death in Seattle in May 1984, he was widely recognised as one of the most important figures in Irish traditional music, having won fans and admirers from every part of the globe and, most particularly, from the folk music scene in the United States.
