Tionscadal The Pogues

Ba sa bhliain 1982 a tháinig The Pogues le chéile i gcathair Londan. Níorbh fhada go raibh pobal dá gcuid féin acu agus
iad faoi dhraíocht ag an meascán mire de phunc agus ceol traidisúnta na hÉireann. Cumadóir amhrán den chéad scoth é an príomhamhránaí Shane MacGowan, file agus nua-sheanchaí, a chorraíonn na mílte lena ghuth agus lena gheáitsí. Faightear macallaí ó scríbhneoirí eile ina shaothar, leithéidí J P Donleavy, Sean O’Casey, Flann O’ Brien agus an Bheachánaigh, ar ndóigh. Thar aon bhanna eile i stair an cheoil Éireannaigh is iad The Pogues is mó a thug annála na himirce dúinn, annála a cheiliúrann an diaspóra agus a chaitheann súil ghéar, leis, ar an stoiteachas a bhaineann leis an imirce, an briseadh croí.

The Pogues were formed in King’s Cross, London, in 1982, and quickly mesmerised audiences with their fusion of hi-octane punk and Irish traditional music. Tonight, IMRAM presents Songs of the Damned: The Pogues Project. Featuring award-winning poet and singer Marcus Mac Conghail on lead vocals, he will be joined by Belfast band The Pogoes – comprising Jim McCarthy (banjo, mandolin), Aaron Loughran (bass), Lou Campbell (guitar), Sean Lavery (accordeon), Stevie Porter (whistle & uillean pipes) and Hal Gordon (drums). The songs have been transcreated into Irish by poets Liam Ó Muirthile and Gabriel Rosenstock; and designer Margaret Lonergan has created on-screen projections of the lyrics.
