“Yeats’ Women” tells the story of Yeats’ life and all the women who supported him, helped him, loved him, broke his heart and inspired him to become Ireland’s greatest poet of the twentieth century. They illustrate the story with his poetry and with music and song. Harpist and singer Claire Roche has put a number of Yeats poems to music which she sings to her harp accompaniment and which adds a beautiful dimension to his work. Glynis wrote “Yeats’ Women” for the 150 th anniversary of Yeats’ birth in Sandymount and the first performance was held in Sandymount last year.
