CLONMEL JUNCTION FESTIVAL 2017 This programme has been carefully created around the theme of the Black Sheep – and in doing so we are inviting you to come and try something new, dive into the unknown, use the festival to experiment with different shows and events. It’s time to come and be different; to see your town differently; to see Clonmel stand out from the crowd this July as it comes alive with a world class programme of music, theatre, dance, colour and much more. We are incredibly proud to present the only Irish performance in 2017 of the award-winning Swan Lake/Loch na hEala by Teac Damsa, which is a real honour for the festival this year as it is one of THE

most sought-after shows in Ireland. We are also thrilled to present many Irish exclusives at the time including This is the Kit, Jesca Hoop, Yuki Numata Resnick and more. The CJF17 artists-in-residence programme will invite Katie Hanlan, Lay of the Land and James Earley to create new work directly responding to the theme of the festival. Crash Ensemble will be our ensemble in residence presenting many events throughout the week. Come and be the black sheep with us in Clonmel this July – you won’t regret it! Mary, Rebecca, the team and Board of Directors.

This event is a sublime mix of Crash Ensemble’s sensibilities, together with Nico Muhly’s arrangements and Amidon’s inimitable voice. Not to be missed! He cast out demons in a strange incantation dance on stage… and was generally awesome. His voice has a brittle, smooth, American twang it’s hard not to like. Brilliant, brilliant gig. - Nialler9

TUE - SUN EXIT STRATEGY BY THE PROJECT TWINS & PETER NASH FREE MAIN GUARD

launching tues 4th at 5pm tues - sun 9am-5pm (last entry 4:15)

‘Exit Strategy’ is a new exhibition by The Project Twins & Peter Nash. The work looks at notions of identity, herd mentality and despair. Through the use of humour and subtle alterations of familiar visual references, the artists create a playful sense of unease and uncertainty in the exhibition. The Project Twins are James & Michael Fitzgerald, an art duo originally from Cashel, Co. Tipperary who are now based in Cork city. They work across a range of disciplines including illustration, printmaking, painting and three-dimensional work. Bold and playful graphics explore ideas of absurdity, oddities and the mundane. Peter Nash is an artist originally from Carlisle, Northern England, currently based in Cork city. Nash's work includes drawing, installation and sculptural assemblage. Using re-appropriated materials and imagery, his work examines human fallibility in a digital age of instant information, mistruth and increased automation.

Rosie began to play music after being Inspired by the vast, rugged landscapes of her coastal hometown Downings.
