Famished, by poet Cherry Smyth, collaboration with composer Ed Bennett and leading jazz vocalist Lauren Kinsella.

The fruit of seven years’ research into the forgotten stories of the Irish Famine and the role played by British Imperialism, Famished combines Smyth’s lyrical poems with Bennett’s cinematic score and haunting vocal interventions from Kinsella to tell the story of one of the greatest humanitarian disasters of the nineteenth century. The result is a lyrical lament that leaves audiences stunned and deeply moved.
