This film is an edited footage of songs and conversations

In September 2006, Phil Hession spent two weeks completing a residency in 'The Curfew Tower', Cushendall. During this time he invited local traditional singers to join him in singing in the tower. Participants were mic'ed up to a sound system and speakers were placed on the roof of the tower, so as residents and passers by could listen in. This film is an edited footage of the songs and conversations that went on.
