“The Longing” is a collaborative traditional singing project between renowned artists Pauline Scanlon and Barry Kerr.
Both established performers in their own right but also long-time collaborators on their respective endeavours, this alliance is an inevitable outworking of years of concerts, sessions and late night sing-songs, where a mutual repertoire and telepathic understanding of expression has cultivated a powerful force in song.
Focusing on traditional songs where feelings of longing for home, freedom, love, acceptance and peace are central themes, they have created beautiful, contemporary arrangements whilst celebrating and amplifying the essence and deep truths within our tradition.
