image preview

In January this year Louisburgh potter and artist Anthony O’Brien travelled to Tatiko, a small village in northern Nigeria to film the traditional potters at work. The Tatiko potters are all women, who work without potters' wheels, kilns or any specialised equipment. The pottery they make is for everyday use, for cooling water, storing oil and grain, and for cooking over the open fire. But what makes their pottery so special is that it is stunningly beautiful, finely decorated in a rich red clay. There are some 50 women potters in Tatiko, making hundreds of pots every week, which are all sold in the local market. People come from all over northern Nigeria to buy their work.

Top songwriters at this year’s Westport Arts Festival

Westport Arts Festival has announced the addition of two notable music acts to this year’s October line up. Fionn Regan has already stimulated interest in Ireland and abroad, garnering nominations for the Irish Choice music award and the internationally acclaimed British Mercury music prize. Regan’s acoustic-based music has been compared favourably to Bob Dylan, both in terms of poetic lyrics and for moving from finger-plucking acoustics in his first album The End Of History, to a fuller sound in Shadow of an Empire. His abilities as a wordsmith are evident with music that is laced with metaphors and analogies. He is an accomplished performer and includes this year’s Glastonbury among his many performances.
