Enigmatic and complex, Joe Heaney was one of the greats of traditional Irish singing.  Shaped by the myths, fables and songs of his upbringing in the west of Ireland, his emergence as a gifted artist came at a personal cost.  Featuring performances from Lisa O’Neill, Damien Dempsey, Seamus Begley and sean nós singers Micheál O’Confhaola and Pól Ó Ceannabháin, the film is an intense exploration of music and song.

In partnership with: Harvest Films, South Wind Blows, Roads Entertainment in association with Bord Scannán na hÉireann/Irish Film Board, BAI, TG4 and with the financial participation of  Société de Développement Des Entreprises Culturelles – Québec, Telefilm Canada.
