Handful of Hermits

Take a Handful of Hermits is a series of short programmes showcasing the variety of art forms practiced by an award-winning West of Ireland arts group, the Hermit Collective. The Collective provides a stage and exhibition area, along with mutual support, for experienced artists and performers and for relative newcomers and takes the arts into the community, in venues across Connacht and beyond.

Throughout the series, Anni Wilton-Jones and Jessamine O’Connor interview poets, musicians, storytellers, painters and even a puppeteer.

The first two programs will be broadcast together on CCR on Sunday, September 3rd, at 2 pm.

The first 15-minute show, “A Mix of Musicians”, features Gregory Daly, a member of the Hermit Collective House Band and singer-songwriter Klaus Harder. The second show features a painter, Paul McDermott, and a potter, Jacqui Wright, in “Add in Some Artists”.

This series of six programmes will continue the following Sundays at 2pm: programmes 3 and 4 on Sunday, Sept. 10th with programmes 5 and 6 on Sunday, Sept. 17th.

Update: Shows will be repeated on Tuesday evenings, at 8pm.
