World renowned artists gather in Bellaghy to mark what would have been Seamus Heaney’s 80th Birthday.

Seamus Heaney HomePlace, on Saturday 13 April, will welcome acclaimed US composer Mohammed Fairouz, Adrian Dunbar, Bríd Brennan, the Codetta Choir and more for ‘In New Light’: An occasion to mark what would have been Seamus Heaney’s 80th birthday.  
Since the unexpected passing in 2013 of the Nobel Prize awarded poet, Seamus Heaney’s words have continued to stir the emotions of those that enjoy his poetry and the work continues to inspire a new generation of writers and artists.
Poems like Scaffolding, Mid Term Break and Digging have been lauded by people from all over the world including New York based, Arab-American Composer, Mohammed Fairouz. Mohammed Fairouz, born in 1985, is one of the most frequently performed, commissioned, and recorded composers working today. He has been hailed by The New York Times as “an important new artistic voice” and by BBC World News as “one of the most talented composers of his generation”.
