Programme One

Tonight Imelda May tells her life story through her songs, from Johnny Got a Boom Boom to Meet you at the Moon - she talks about being a Liberty Bell and shares some hilarious stories from her youth and her life in London, including singing at Bar Mitzvahs to supermarket openings where she had to perform on palettes. Coming from a tight knit family in the Liberties - she speaks with affection about them - even wrangling her father into singing a love song to her mother!

A night of musical memories and a celebration of one of Ireland's hottest new talents.
