Event Details

SIngers and broadcasters, Jane Cassidy and Maurice Leyden (pictured below), present a musical narrative telling the story of Mary Ann McCracken, social reformer and unsung heroine of the 1798 Rising.

Maurice and Jane recount Mary Ann’s life and times, weaving letters and historical detail with related folk songs. First performed at the Belfast Folk Festival in the 1990s, the show was such a success that they have been performing it regularly ever since, such is the appeal of Mary Ann McCracken’s story and of the beautiful songs that illuminate it.
