About this show

Experience Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter Susan McKeown's moving musical explorations of the link between creativity and mental health, as she performs live with her band for the launch of her seventh solo album, Singing in the Dark. The celebrated warmth of McKeown's vocals shine through Singing in the Dark, which sets the lyrics of some of the world's best known poets writing through the lens of depression, mania and addiction - Theodore Roethke, Anne Sexton, James Clarence Mangan, Lord Byron, Violetta Parra, Nuala Ni Dhomhnaill - to her signature mix of original and world music. The evening will include a live conversation moderated by Live from the NYPL's Paul Holdengräber, featuring Susan McKeown and author Kay Redfield Jamison (Touched with Fire: Manic-Depressive Illness and the Artistic Temperament).
