7:30pm  Viewing of The Camino Voyage - Stackhouse Theater, Elrod Commons
The Camino Voyage documents the modern-day re-creation of the centuries-old pilgrimage from Ireland to St. James' tomb in Spain. A crew including writer and poet Danny Sheehy, artist Liam Holden, stonemason Brendan Moriarty, and musicians Glen Hansard and Breanndán Ó Beaglaoich travel 2,500 kilometers over three summers in a hand-built traditional boat. The Camino Voyage is the recipient of several awards. Watch a trailer

Breanndán Ó Beaglaoich is the SSA keynote speaker and will participate in a talk-back after the showing of The Camino Voyage. Be sure to come to the keynote Saturday at 3:30pm in Wilson Hall to hear him play his accordion and talk about his efforts to keep Irish traditions thriving.
