Enigmatic and complex, Joe Heaney was one of the greats of traditional Irish singing
(sean nós). 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 Colm Seoighe, Macdara Ó Fátharta, Jaren Cerf, Lisa O'Neill,
Damien Dempsey, and sean nós singers Mícheál Ó Chonfhaola and Pól Ó
Ceannabháin, and beautiful black and white cinematography, SONG OF GRANITE is a
distinct portrait of Heaney’s life and a marvelous exploration of music and song.
