Street Lights Album Out Today featuring Homeward Bound


Colm was delighted to perform along with a collective of Irish musicians called Street Lights on the charity single “Homeward Bound”, a cover of the classic 1966 tune by Simon & Garfunkel. The single and album were produced to generate funds to assist those in the homeless community. Peter McVerry Trust, Focus Ireland, and Simon Community are the recipients of all profits of the single and album sales, which will go directly to rehoming and rehousing on a national level. You can purchase the song here at your choice of online vendor.

The album is out today and features tracks from Bell X1, Snow Patrol, Saint Sister, Richard Hawley with Lisa Hannigan, James Vincent McMorrow, Damien Dempsey, Luka Bloom, Villagers, Stephen James Smith, David Gray, The Frames, Lisa O’Neill, Glenn & Ronan and Celtic Woman.

Wildflowers – a feminine genesis

Colm will be traveling to New York City in October to perform the music for a production called Wildflower – a feminine genesis presented by La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club & the Irish Arts Center of NYC. There will be 4 performances Oct 18-21. For more information & ticket links please visit irishartscenter.org.

Inspired by the lush symbolism of Irish poet William Butler Yeats, internationally acclaimed dance artist Maureen Fleming invents surreal movement poetry, curving into shapes of shattering beauty. Fleming’s new interdisciplinary celebration of femininity combines dance and mesmerizing visual theater in a series of “vision poems.” Fleming juxtaposes her singular movement with geometric moving sculptures and brilliant lighting by longtime collaborator Christopher Odo. 


Featuring live music by renowned Irish composer and violinist Colm Mac Con Iomaire (founding member of the Frames) and uilleann piper James Mahon, with pianist Bruce Brubaker performing music of Philip Glass.

Exploring the “immortal waters” of the mystical feminine, Wildflowers asks: “Is immortality an elusive paradigm or present in the here and now?”
