Open Trad Night - Danns Bar @ Danns Bar

For the past 15 years every Tuesday evening, Danns bar has been the location for great session music.  As the night progresses, different musicians arrive, and the music suddenly takes a left turn, down through the Ring of Kerry, before detouring back up through the Burren before a quick trip over to Nashville.

“We’re open to everyone and anything,” says Hughie Browne, the man with the whip, and the keeper of the flame for all these years. “It’s what makes it interesting not only for those listening but, perhaps more importantly, for us. We’re not here to play the same old songs week after week. We’re out to find something new each week…”

And with so many singers, pipers, banjo players, guitarists, turning up each week, it’s easy to see how a song might never remain the same.

Christy Dignam & Joe Jewell: Some Songs and Stories @ The Whale Theatre
May 23 @ 8:00 pm – 10:30 pm
Christy Dignam & Joe Jewell: Some Songs and Stories @ The Whale Theatre

Christy Dignam and Joe Jewell will be performing their intimate acoustic show “Some Songs and Stories” live at Whale Theatre.

The show features some well known Aslan songs plus many songs by other artists that influenced Christy and Joe throughout their career. The lads tell some great stories about their lives in one of Ireland’s most famous rock bands. The show is a must for any fan, and it is really a very special treat to experience this great show in such an intimate environment.

Christy Dignam is regarded as one of Irelands greatest singers and performers ever. Despite Christy’s recent health scare, he is still performing and has never sounded better. U2’s Bono is a big fan of Christy, and has said about Christy “What a voice, what a voice, the Angel of Dublin“. U2 invited Christy to perform with them at their recent sold out Dublin gigs, but Christy had a prior engagement at a charity fundraiser show, and had to turn down the invite from the biggest rock band in the world.

There is some great humour in some of the stories that Christy and Joe tell. It’s two lifelong friends since childhood in Finglas, who lived the rock and roll dream, and survived to tell the tale.

The Six Marys @ Whale Theatre
May 29 @ 8:00 pm – 10:30 pm
The Six Marys @ Whale Theatre

Comedy Theatre

Back by popular demand, the wonderful The Six Marys returns to the Whale Theatre after 5 sell out shows. This one-woman-show presented by Jean Farrell and directed by Joe McCarrick is a comical yet poignant look at life, from childhood in the 1950s to the present day.

It draws very much on the influence of religion as taught by the nuns – preparing young Irish Catholic schoolgirls to imitate the virtues of the Virgin Mary. The Six Marys are fun-loving girlfriends, who grow into practical, everyday housewives. The light-hearted atmosphere helps us concentrate on their journeys through the decades delivering all kinds of sharp and comical observations. Jean Farrell has plenty to say about the teenage pursuit of Mr Wonderful followed by the reality of married life, teenage children and growing waistlines.

With accompaniment Catherine Gallagher singing some of the biggest hits of these foundation-shaking decades, The Six Marys is a fun-filled, poptastic trip memory lane. And one that you’re never quite likely to forget.

It’s no joke that I’ve finally become a stand up comedian at 66 years of age. And I’m loving it – Irish Times 

Mary Black said she Married a lovely sexy man who had turned into a sofa that grunts. Mary Grey remarked that her husband’s idea of foreplay is “eight pints” or “Are you awake?” – Irish Times

Mack Fleetwood @ The Hot Spot

Mack Fleetwood @ The Hot Spot

Ireland’s premier tribute to the Super group Fleetwood Mac, bring you on a magical musical journey from the Peter Green blues era to the multi-platinum selling Anglo/American band that still tour today.

Originally the “Best White Blues Band” to come out of the 60s, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac had several memorable hits.  He influenced scores of others great bands that were to follow them, and/or cover their songs, such as Led Zeppelin and Santana.

When Peter Green left the band, Mick Fleetwood & John McVie kept the show on the road, being joined first by Christine Perfect (later McVie) and then Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. These three talented and prolific songwriters brought a distinctive style and unique fusion of rock, pop and country to the band. The turmoil of the bands private lives was played out in their music. Nicks & Buckingham soon gained iconic status in fronting the new line-up. Fleetwood Mac enjoyed a rebirth, producing many classic hits including the outstanding Rumours album. They went on to even greater worldwide success than the original line-up.

6 piece band, MACK FLEETWOOD deliver a spellbinding show. Their love of the material and musical prowess shines through in each song. They will bewitch you with authentic renditions all your favourite Fleetwood Mac hits.  PLEASE NOTE – LIMITED SEATING

Outdoor Movies @ The Cove: Bohemian Rhapsody @ The Cove

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY (UK/USA/PG12/134mins)

The winner of four Oscars – including Best Actor for leading man Rami Malek – Bohemian Rhapsody has proven to be one of the most popular films of the past 6 months, hitting all the right notes for fans of Queen around the world.

Unashamedly populist, and packing quite a few solid gold, singalong hits, Bohemian Rhapsody is also a film that’s perfect for a party. Especially a party on a beach.

Taking place down at The Cove in Greystones on Saturday, June 8th, this is one beach party that cannot be missed. Especially when you consider that the good people at Whale are charging a mere €5 to help cover the costs.

Throw in the traditional free food truck treat – we reckon, given that it’s June, and it’s Freddie, ’99s all round! – and you’ll be tripping the light fandango in style.

Sunday Café Session - James & the North Shore @ The Hot Spot
James & the North Shore – cohesively form a folk sound with sub-Celtic influences and a working class ethos that recalls Billy Bragg
The band have released an 8 song debut via Factotum CO titled “Lover? I Barely Know Her”. Recorded live from the floor, the album displays the band at their most honest and raw. James Bryan’s stark lyrics and delivery are reminiscent of a Leonard Cohen or Jason Molina. The North Shore provide the backbone that guides the ship. Sometimes they veer into wildness, other times into calm.

Strolling Through Ulysses! @ The Whale Theatre

Strolling Through Ulysses! is a one-man show that tells the fun-filled story of Bloomsday – June 16th 1904 – the iconic day around which James Joyce’s Ulysses is based.

Written and performed by Robert Gogan Strolling Through Ulysses! guides you through the curious events and quirky characters of Ulysses, in a humorous, entertaining and informative manner, with extracts from the novel which best illustrate the various aspects of Joyce’s writing – the comical, the descriptive and the complex – without compromising the integrity of the great book.

Written and performed by Robert Gogan Strolling Through Ulysses! guides you through the curious events and quirky characters of Ulysses, in a humorous, entertaining and informative manner; with extracts from the novel which best illustrate the various aspects of Joyce’s writing – the comical, the descriptive and the complex – without compromising the integrity of the great book.

Joyce, speaking about Ulysses once famously declared, ‘there is not one serious line in it.’ Strolling Through Ulysses! certainly proves that!  It is bawdy, irreverent and great fun!.  So hold onto your hats and take a deep breath as Robert Gogan takes you on a 75 minute whistle-stop tour through the fun and laughter which is the backbone of James Joyce’s extraordinary and celebrated novel. 

Over 16’s only

Reviews

Given the burnished Victorian interior of the pub, and Gogan’s pitch-perfect balancing of narrator, actor and observer, it turned out to be a wonderfully bawdy experience – and one that certainly enlivened our dinner conversation afterwards. – The Irish Independent 

Gogan is an engaging and well-rehearsed raconteur. His edited selection of excerpts cut right to the heart of Ulysses ….. succeeds in making Joyce accessible even to those who have only the sketchiest context for the work – The Sunday Business Post 

Having seen Strolling through Ulysses in the International Bar I knew it would chime well with Out to Lunch audiences but little did I know it would become one of the most enjoyed and talked about shows of the festival. Robert Gogan gave a hugely energetic and insightful presentation on the humour of Ulysses which sent the large audience out with a smile and with a new understanding of Joyce’s masterpiece. A perfect Saturday afternoon show. Sean Kelly, Director, Out to Lunch Arts Festival Belfast 2016

Open Trad Night - Danns Bar @ Danns Bar

For the past 15 years every Tuesday evening, Danns bar has been the location for great session music.  As the night progresses, different musicians arrive, and the music suddenly takes a left turn, down through the Ring of Kerry, before detouring back up through the Burren before a quick trip over to Nashville.

“We’re open to everyone and anything,” says Hughie Browne, the man with the whip, and the keeper of the flame for all these years. “It’s what makes it interesting not only for those listening but, perhaps more importantly, for us. We’re not here to play the same old songs week after week. We’re out to find something new each week…”

And with so many singers, pipers, banjo players, guitarists, turning up each week, it’s easy to see how a song might never remain the same.
