Winestead at Triskel

The director of Triskel, Tony Sheehan, came to the premiere of Winestead in East Yorkshire, June 22nd 2017 and invited us to perform an extended version of the programme in Cork. Gavin had done a pubic interview at Triskel when the GB Ensemble performed The Sinking of the Titanic in Cork as part of the Titanic centenary tour in 2012. It is a very fine venue, and happens to have an organ - the small organ in the tiny village church of Winestead had been used in the UK premiere.
