Remember is a performed poetry piece by Sorcha Fox with an original live score - dulcimer, fiddle, guitar and percussion Remember is a challenge, personal and political, to look at Ireland and our role in it. It is a call to action and a challenge to listen to and amplify the voices of those who hold the seeds of who we might be.
