‘NightVisiting’ reconnects us to the social role that night time social house visits once played in our oral traditions and folklore, and in the preservation of our songs and stories from tender love songs to the bawdy, to songs of loss and longing. Lisa Lambe collaborates with musicians and performers to create an evening celebrating the old songs, stories and tunes from around the hearth, bespoke to each location she visits. In the west, Nightvisiting is known as ‘Bothántaíocht’ or ‘Cuairtaíocht’, in the southern counties it is known as going ‘Scoraíochting’.
