Special performances from Camille O’Sullivan to be broadcast online on Midsummer’s Day
Camille O'Sullivan invites you into her home, in which she has been in isolation since March 12, to perform a special set of songs for her beloved Cork Midsummer audience. She’ll take you from her kitchen to the garden to the broom cupboard, guiding you through the calmness and chaos of her day, reflecting on what we’re all going through right now, before settling you to sleep with a lullaby.
