Little John Nee premieres his newest work with The Tea Dance Triode (Jeremy Howard and Fionn Robinson), for the 30th Earagail Arts Festival.
“Under Milk Wood meets Twin Peaks with a soundtrack by Cab Calloway and the Velvet Underground, that’s not where it’s at, but go down that road half a mile and swing a left at Bukowski’s Grave past Son House and Debussy, keep going till you meet Flann O’Brien – He’ll tell you where it is…Tullyglen.
