Scullion’s self-titled 1979 debut album included abstractions from James Joyce - ‘The Fruit Smelling Shop’. Now, in celebration of Bloomsday, Wednesday 16th June, the seminal folk rock band share a reimagined version of the song as part of The Bloomsday Festival – a unique literary festival happening online for 2021, which is made possible thanks to Culture Ireland, The Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht Sport and Media, the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland, and the James Joyce Centre.
