The Voyage of St Brendan
By Marion Kenny & John Kenny
Join sibling duo Marion and John Kenny as they explore the legendary voyage of St Brendan and his monks into the unknown. Volcanoes, icebergs, sea monsters, strange beings, courage and spirituality all play a part in this ancient adventure story of St. Brendan. Known as ‘The Navigator’ he is widely believed to have sailed from Ireland to America hundreds of years before the Vikings and thousands of years before Columbus. Words and music will be woven together in a magical blend, featuring harps and the ancient Celtic Iron Age horns of the Deskford Carnyx from Scotland and the Loughnashade horn from Ireland.
Written and Performed by Marion Kenny and John Kenny. Filmed at the Scottish Storytelling Centre.
