Fergus O’Farrell was the charismatic voice of one of the most compelling and influential groups to emerge from the Irish music scene in the 1990’s. In celebration of Fergus’s life, this May will see the release of ‘Breaking Out’, a documentary film about Fergus’ incredible journey. Alongside the film’s release, there will be a special performance from Fergus’ band Interference in the National Concert Hall.
Although they rarely play as Interference, when they do it is a magical force of nature. For this very special show, Glen is delighted to join the band to sing the songs and to help celebrate the release of the film ‘Breaking Out’ and its emotional and inspirational soundtrack. The album includes the timeless song ‘Gold’, which became a stand-out moment in ‘Once’, the Oscar-winning film and multi-Tony-award-winning musical. This remarkable collection of musicians includes Maurice Seezer, Paul Tiernan, Camilla Griehsel, founding members James O’Leary, Cal McCarthy and Maurice Culligan, and long-time collaborators John Fitzgerald, Anthony Noonan, Bertrand Galen and Marja Gaynor.
On May 15th, Element Distribution will release ‘Breaking Out’ the remarkable story of Fergus’ life filmed over 10 years by director and friend Michael McCormack. Winner of Best Irish Documentary at the Galway Film Fleadh 2019 and hailed by Screen Daily as “ deeply affecting” and “… privilege to watch”.
