We all know about Maud Gonne, but have you ever heard of George, aka Mrs. WB Yeats? Tune in to “Georgie’s Vision”, to learn more about this extraordinary but self-effacing genius who was the catalyst for her husband’s greatest poetry, yet said “thank-you for leaving me out”. Featuring Professor Margaret Mills Harper, official biographer Ann Saddlemyer, grand-daughter and harpist Caitriona Yeats, Benedictine Monk Mark Patrick Hederman, poet John Montague, Olwen Fouere, Ingrid Craigie, David Heap, and Pat Laffan, among others. A Deirdre Mulrooney production for RTE Lyric FM with the support of BAI Sound and Vision Scheme.
The incomparable Olwen Fouéré provided the voice of Georgie Yeats, reciting the words from A Vision that Georgie channeled in her automatic writing, providing creative inspiration and guidance for W.B.
I had a lot of fun on this creating some very atmospheric sounds for readings to try and create a suitably occult listening experience!
Georgie's Vision will be broadcast on RTÉ Lyric FM on September 30th 2016 at 7PM
