A larger-than-life figure on the Irish folk scene, Dark Horse on the Wind celebrates the life and songs of ballad singer Liam Weldon. Featuring contributions from young musicians such as Lankum, Lisa O’Neill and many more, Myles O’Reilly’s film celebrates a legendary character that Ireland almost forgot, and the vast footprint his songs and words have left behind in the
consciousness of the Irish diaspora.
The film was introduced with a mini-concert from Irish musician Cathal McConnell (Boys
Of The Lough) and followed by a discussion led by Cathal about his memories of Liam Weldon.
