Confirmation

'CONFIRMATION' is Inspired by XNTHONY's Confirmation booklet from 2002 and the Roscommon County's rejection of the Marriage Equality Referendum in 2015. The project explores the intersection of rural life and queer life, promoting both Roscommon and rural life as a force for good. The project will take the form of a live pop concert experience and will premiere in Autumn 2018

Leading the project through writing and overall creative direction XNTHONY is joined by a stellar team of creatives. 

Conirmation is Funded by Arts Council Ireland, Creative Ireland, roscommon County Council and Roscommon Arts Centre.

 ODU  Musical Direction & Song Writing  ODU has always been destined to be a curator of colourful pop.  “I’ve always been drawn to people who make balls out pop; people who have personality and something to say like Marina and The Diamonds, Tove Lo and Susanne Sundfør; credible artists who have made their mark by being vulnerable and telling their story without ever dulling their pop sheen.”
