The project includes singers from, and will tour to, places where there was significant activity in Easter 1916. 

The singers taking part in the project are:
Paul O’Reilly (Wexford), Rosie Ní Ghallóglaigh (Meath), Sandra Joyce (Galway), John Tunney (Clare/Galway), Jerry O’Reilly (Dublin), Fergus Russell (Dublin), Paddy Berry (Wexford), Aileen Lambert (Wexford), Larry Joy (Tipperary)

'An exquisite songwriter' The Sunday Times
