Late night Bank Holiday Special! The Space @ The Dock presents THE BARLEY MOB followed by reggae & roots DJ set

Gare St. Lazare Players Ireland present THE END by Samuel Beckett

Crucial Reggae vibes and soulful sounds

followed by post show Q&A with Conor Lovett “It is, as ever, a towering achievement of acting and directing.” Sunday Independent

The BaRLey MOB are a 7 piece group hailing from Ireland, whose collective influences have fused to create a unique style of music. Described as one of the hardest working bands in Ireland, they bring a fresh blend of uplifting music to their listeners, embellished and delivered with equal measures of rock riffs, soulful melodies, folk jigs and infectious beats. This is “Everybody’s Music” relevant to all of its listeners, spreading a message of positivity. Born from days of economic uncertainty and personal obstacles, The BaRLey MOB have set out to entertain, move and relate to their listeners. Through energetic and electric live shows they leave the crowds feeling as though they were involved in something special. Anthems such as “Never be lost” and “Everybody’s’ Music” tell the story of the importance of music in our lives, while a crowd favourite, “Stand Up, Rise Up”, urges us all to stand up and be counted amongst our peers. Friday 23rd March

‘A LIGHT IN THE DARK’ House Party

The End is a short story by Samuel Beckett which he began in English and finished in French. In it a man recounts an episode late in his life when, having been expelled from an institution of care, he finds his own way in the world. He meets a variety of characters and situations before finally lying down to let life ebb away.  It is one of Beckett’s most complete, most compelling and most beautiful works and is a Gare St Lazare favourite.  Directed by Judy Hegarty Lovett and performed by Conor Lovett. Gare St Lazare’s unique and simple approach to the work of Samuel Beckett, Herman Melville, Conor McPherson and Michael Harding has been acclaimed internationally for its freshness and accessibility and their Beckett work in particular has turned a whole new audience onto the sublime work of an Irish writer that has had a profound impact across theatre, music, literature and film. They have performed their work all over Europe and the USA and as far afield as China, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, India, Argentina and Israel.

€10

You are invited to a house party with some young local actors and musicians, where you can sit back and enjoy the stories and the music, old and new, in an enjoyably relaxed atmosphere, MC’d by local actor and writer Ronan Geoghegan. Expect an eclectic mix of storytelling, acting, and music performed by young local and national performers, in comfortable surroundings, much like the old Céilí houses that were once so common in rural Ireland. Performers include Ronan Geoghegan, Noelle Kielty, Leitrim singer/songwriter Paul McDonnell and many more.

Leitrim Live Music Club presents LAU

‘Quite frankly, the best band in the world right now’ Channel 4 

In 2004, sat around a kitchen table in Edinburgh, Lau took their first musical steps. Now, to have achieved so much, in so few years, is staggering. The warmth and excitement they generate with each new release, and at every live gig, has culminated in armfuls of plaudits, including three consecutive ‘Best Group’ at the BBC Radio Two Folk Awards from 2008, to 2010. In front of an audience the trio is renowned for scaling new musical heights, their seemingly telepathic musical communication fusing ten minute epics with the full spectrum of emotions. Their talents are such that MOJO magazine commissioned them to record a version of ‘Dear Prudence’ for a Beatles related cover mounted CD. Featuring guitarist and singer Kris Drever from Orkney, who also performs with Kate Rusby; fiddler and composer, Aidan O’Rourke, a founder member of Blazin’ Fiddles, who has also performed with Eddi Reader, Brian Finnegan and jazz artist Andy Sheppard; and accordionist Martin Green, who has toured in the bands of Eliza Carthy, Joan Baez and many more.

An acoustic evening with MARTIN CONNOLLY, EILEEN O’ BRIEN & DEIRDRE MCSHERRY

Martin Connolly is a highly regarded accordion maker, musician and teacher from Killaloe, Co. Clare, who grew up steeped in traditional music. Music sessions were commonplace in the Connolly household, with names like Paddy O Brien, Joe Burke and Charlie and Ben Lennon regular visitors. The connection between the Connolly and O’Brien families stretches back two generations. Eileen’s grandfather Dinny O’Brien was a frequent visitor to the Connolly household and subsequently Martin’s brother Seamus and Eileen’s father Paddy joined forces to record one of Ireland’s most acclaimed duet albums, “The Banks of the Shannon”. Having played music together for many years, Martin and Eileen have a mutual understanding and appreciation of each other’s musical style and also possess the common bond of being influenced by Paddy O’Brien. The result is a wonderful classic duet of fiddle and accordion and they will be accompanied for this gig by Deirdre McSherry, from Tipperary, who has also been influenced by the O’Brien musical heritage. A talented and expressive accompanist and flautist, Deirdre has played music with Eileen for many years and featured on two of Eileen’s albums.

Embarking on a tour to celebrate his first ‘commercial’ album, entitled “Oh Pioneer”  since “I never thought this day would come” in 2008, Duke Special reflects from his recording studio: “Standing on the edge of recording a new album is a daunting task. Behind you are the sessions and songs you have recorded previously, some popular, some well known, some dear to your own heart but not celebrated, some completely overlooked... ahead are other peoples’ expectations, your own hopes for the record, the worry of shitty reviews, paying the bills and so on but... I love the adventure”.

Moving Stills explores the representation of a utopian community in the west of Ireland. Using the medium of film and photography, the work seeks to explore the auto-biographical difficulties and philosophical challenges posed by representing a community in which Wallace came to live as a child.

Joe Hanly - One of its legs is both the same

Joe Hanly studied Fine Art in .N.C.A.D graduating in 1977 and completed an MA Fine Art in NCAD 2001.

School of Art and Design 1984 and was a lecturer Fine Art Print at Dun Laoghaire School of Art and Design from 1981 to 1984. Hanly is interested in people’s capacity to support and negotiate the highly complex and mindboggling array of multi-sensual experiences they encounter continuously each day. Work for One of Its Legs is Both the Same consist of painting/montage and digitally generated print into which are gathered as diverse a selection as possible of unassociated items of content, familiar, partially familiar and completely unfamiliar. They are set into paradoxical relationships of an abstract and /or choreographic order in which the elements themselves are left to find their own dialogic positions, each seeking to tap that innate aesthetic and invite new readings from unanticipated associations. Both Ruby Wallace and Joe Hanly will give an artists talk during the run of the exhibition. Please keep an eye on our website for details: www.thedock.ie 19

All singers and ‘non singers’ very welcome. To find out more please email me on info@yasia.org/ or 0831 227 282  AN INTRODUCTION TO KIRTAN (CALL AND RESPONSE CHANTING) This is a very joyful way to sing, without any singing experience necessary. The chants are simple mantras, in sanskrit, and are sung in a call and response format, so there’s no need to know the words, or the melody! This is a nondenominational practice. A beautiful and simple way to connect to your heart, through your voice, without needing to sing in perfect pitch or ‘get it right’. To find out more about Kirtan, go to: www.yasia.org or email: info@yasia.org or call:0831 227 282 .

Leaving home - finding home. Writing out the experience of exile, emigration, immigration and belonging. This workshop considers the histories of emigration and immigration. It covers the meaning of land, people and spiritual practice and what those losses involve, particularly the loss of language. Experiences involved in arriving in a new land are considered, and firmly relate to the reasons for departure. Memory, stories, song carry the past, and we consider how this happens. The workshop will involve a talk by Robyn and discussion of her work as an example of the experience of a third generation Irish Australian and that of other poets/writers such as Eavan Boland and Vincent Buckley. She will guide you through the particulars of writing, a meditative moment and the creation of a piece of work, followed by detailed feedback. Each participant 21


workshops& classes is given notes to keep relating to the topic, as well as copies of Robyn’s or other poems which exemplify the theme. It is useful if participants bring an item relating to the topic, e.g. photos, a piece of lace, music, trinkets, which they can use in an experiential moment within the workshop. Suitable for poetry and prose writers, both beginners and more experienced. Dr. Robyn Rowland has published nine books, six of poetry. She is winner of, among others, the Writing Spirit Poetry Award, Ireland 2010. She has created two CD’s: Off the tongue and Silver Leaving - Poems & Harp with Irish harpist Lynn Saoirse. She is an Honorary Fellow, School of Culture and Communication, University of Melbourne, Australia.

SPLÓDAR presents SIVE

8.30pm €15/€12

by John B Keane. Directed by Prin Duignan

Described as a piece of theatrical magic, Keane’s Sive has consistently lit up Irish and world stages since it was first produced in 1959 and characters such as the innocent young girl Sive, the scheming Mena and the ruthless Tomáisín Seán Rua are as recognisable today as they were back in the fifties. Keane brings his genius to bear on the story in language of sublime lyricism and his introduction of the traveller Pats Bacach and his balladeer son Carthalawn is one of the most imaginative devices in modern Irish drama . Splódar are proud to present this great play in this, the tenth anniversary of the author’s death. Sat 24th March

PADDY KEENAN

34

8.30pm €15/€12 The greatest living uilleann piper in the world today returns to the Glens. Paddy, a founding member of The Bothy Band, is the gold standard by which all uilleann pipers are judged today. He is a third generation master piper. His family were a Travelling family steeped in traditional music with both his father and grandfather accomplished players. Paddy’s own skill and talent on the pipes has drawn comparisons from fellow musicians to that of Jimi Hendrix’s legendary ability with a guitar. Rightfully acknowledged as the most accomplished uilleann piper performing today, Paddy can claim his place alongside such open-style legends as pipers John Cash and Johnny Doran.

THE WOODY PINES

Last time North Carolina band Woody Pines toured over here as a trio, reviewers unanimously declared them to be one of the most entertaining acts on the Americana circuit. Now, as a four-piece, and with a brand new album to promote, the band is promising once more to  deliver what The Scotsman declared was “a rollicking and engagingly idiosyncratic” show.

Billy Joe Shaver, the top gun Outlaw Country legend described by Willie Nelson as “possibly the best songwriter alive today,” declared: “They’re the best damn band I’ve ever heard!” 8.30pm €15/€12 Sunday 6th May Family Ticket €40 (2 adults and up to 3 children)

Their sound could have come barrelling through the grille-cloth of those big console radios in the living rooms of the 1950’s, when the traditional sounds of rural America were still on the minds of young musicians transferring the old-time music to a distinctively modern age. Their tight instrumental work and line-up fiddle, banjo, mandolin, bass and guitar - is reminiscent of early bluegrass, but their powerful approach is whole-heartedly old-time, centered largely by the fiddle.

‘GROWING ARTISTS II’ MANORHAMILTON SCHOOLS EXHIBITION

Opening reception 1pm-6pm Fri 23rd March. Show runs until 12th April. The second year of ‘GROWING ARTISTS’ involves all the main Schools in Manorhamilton and guest school St. Columbans from Belcoo. St Clairs secondary school, who initiated Growing Artists I in 2011 will display recent work from pupils exploring different artistic processes and materials as well as a series of portraits of the pupils.

Organised by the artist Christine Mackey workshops were held at the Gael Scoil, Manorhamilton and extended to other schools. Through a playful combination of mediums and approaches led by the students the project focuses on our relationship to rivers and plants, trees, forests and birds including the illusive trails left by indigenous animals in the landscape. Historical stories such as the Dobharchu is re-visualized as a detective story in search of the famed ‘water dog’ at Glenade lake. Participants include over 100 Pupils from the following schools: St, Clairs, Comprehensive School, Manorhamilton. Gael Scoil Manorhamilton. Mastersons NS. St. Columban’s Primary School, Gorteen, Belcoo. Growing Artists II is organised and curated by Edel White, Art Teacher, St Clairs; Artist, Christine Mackey and Sean O’Reilly, Director, LSC. 41


SHIRO MASUYAMA

Sligo County Council Residency Exhibition - Fred Conlon Award, Opening reception Fri 4th May. Show runs until 24th May. Masuyama studied architecture at Meiji University, Kawasaki, Japan where he became interested in the intersection of architecture and art. Often placing works in public and city spaces Masuyama reads the context of the site using architectural techniques and uses popular motifs and images to draw the attention of passers by. Masuyama’s work has been described as ‘interventionist’ and ‘interactive’ as he aims to draw the attention of people who have no prior connection to the world of art. He describes his work as four-dimensional and only complete when those who view it become involved as this ‘fourth dimension’ and an integral part of the work.
