Will arrive at G! by sailboat

Yann Tiersen will embark on a tour like no other when he departs from his home - Ushant, an island off the Breton coast - this summer and sets sail for a tour of Celtic lands and the Faroe Islands.

Tiersen & fellow artist QUINQUIS will be travelling on their sailboat, Ninnog - named after a medieval mother superior, born in 414 who travelled from Wales to Brittany, becoming a protector of women and a champion of sustainability and forestry – to a series of performances in Ireland, Wales, Scotland, England and the Faroe Islands.
 
With several shows already booked in June, July, August and September, taking in Cork, Dublin, Belfast, Edinburgh and Bangor as well as Liverpool and the Faroe Islands, the artists have asked communities to suggest places for them to perform along the route – churches, communes, pubs, squats, beaches and gardens – with the aim of offering a new way to experience performance, for both the audience and the artists.
 
With a manifesto that aims to prioritise interaction and communication, promoting local communities with emphasis on shared experience, the only element that will affect the schedule of the community generated performances that will slot in between the confirmed shows is the wind that will power the boat.
