Séamus Ennis was born in 1919 and we are already planning and developing ideas to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the great man’s birth. Thanks to Fingal County Council and the Arts Council, 2017 will see a quality programme that will hopefully attract our regular audience members as well as some new faces to the centre. We have a great line up of events for the year including our indoor gigs, art exhibitions, workshops and the return of summer outdoor concerts and the food and craft fairs in the Piper’s Garden. We are delighted to continue with our ‘LOL in Naul’ Comedy Club and this year we kick of our comedy season with the great Kevin McAleer. Gearoid Farrelly will be back in February for the rest of the year with a host of brilliant comedians to entertain us each month. The fortnightly Cinema night also returns along with a special programme of films for young people and children. If it’s music you’re after, we have plenty in store, with the return of Andy Irvine and Donal Lunny, the Henry Girls, Mick Flannery the ever popular Kimmie Rhodes and the brilliant David Munnelly Trio all performing in the coming months. I am especially looking forward to a very special performance by Rioghnach Connolly and her band Honeyfeet. Rioghnach is an emerging talent with a stunning voice and she has been performing to sell-out crowds across Ireland and Britain, so we are delighted she has agreed to perform here. As a charity organisation, it is important that we maintain education as one of our primary objectives and therefore our music school, adult arts & craft workshops and children’s art classes are vital in developing and supporting artistic development in the Fingal and north County Dublin area. In the coming season, there will be music classes, mosaic workshops and two stunning art exhibitions showcasing the work of Leonard Sexton and Aidan Flanagan. So please check our website for up and coming events and if you wish to support the centre why not become a SEAC Friend and enjoy the many benefits of our Friends package! Enjoy and hope to see you at one of our gigs. Ádh Mór Sean Paul O’Hare, Director/Stiúrthóir

Dónal Clancy is an acclaimed guitarist, singer and performer. His father and uncles, of The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem, are often regarded as the first group to bring Irish folk music to a worldwide audience in the 1950′s and 60’s. Dónal grew up in a household and community steeped in music. He spent his early childhood in Canada and the US before his family settled back in An Rinn, Co. Waterford in 1983. His father gave him his first guitar at the age of eight and he was playing professionally by his early teens. After returning from a residency at Delaney’s Irish Pub in Hong Kong in the mid-nineties, he co-founded the group Danú but left soon after to join a trio with his father, Liam, and cousin, Robbie O’Connell. In 1998, Dónal moved to New York where he contributed to albums and tours with Eileen Ivers and The Chieftains on their ‘Tears of Stone Tour’ in Japan and the US in 1999. From 2000 - 2002 he was a member of the Irish-American super-group Solas and in 2003 he re-joined the group Danú who would go on to become one of the most successful Irish bands today. In 2014, to much critical acclaim, Donal released an album entitled ‘Songs of a Roving Blade’. His latest album ‘On the Lonesome Plain’ features a mix of songs and instrumentals, including two of his own compositions ‘A Strike for Victory’ commemorating the 1916 Easter Rising and an instrumental piece entitled ‘Máirseáil na Conrach’, inspired by the dramatic beauty of West Kerry.

This adaptation of Jane Austen’s Lady Susan is a rarity: an 18th century period drama with an over-arching sense of fun. With razor-sharp wit and a cunning that can’t be underestimated, the beautiful and recently widowed Lady Susan Vernon (Kate Beckinsale) takes up residence with her in-laws in a bid to win the heart of the eligible Reginald De Courcy, her sister-in-law’s wealthy and dashing younger brother. Using merciless tactics, charm and resourcefulness, Susan outmanoeuvres all who stand in her way. “Breathlessly funny… Beckinsale doesn’t miss a beat.” Tim Robey, The Telegraph “…fizzles with wit, intrigue and creative amorality.” Donald Clarke, The Irish Times “Lady Susan, an epistolary novel that probably dates from the middle of the seventeen-nineties, has been transformed by Stillman into a brisk and cutting comedy of manners.” Anthony Lane, The New Yorker Director: Whit Stillman, Duration: 93 minutes Language: English, Cert: G

David, Joseph and Shane coming from Mayo and Sligo respectively, show great reverence to the old recordings, also blending some new compositions into the mix.

There is no one in the whole wide world of music quite like Pierce Turner; a unique visionary, the owner of a voice that drips emotion, a consummate lyricist and the creator of tunes which are both complex and accessible.

From Mayo, David Munnelly is widely regarded as one of the most influential Irish accordion players of his generation: he has played with legendary Irish bands De Dannan and The Chieftains, and for 15 years fronted The David Munnelly Band. Shane McGowan (guitar), from an area in south Sligo known as Lavagh (his father, Harry is a wellknown flute player from the area), comes from a musical family and started at an early age, giving his first public performance at the age of 5. Playing Irish music as well as rock, swing and Jazz, he joined Dave and the band having previously toured with Lunasa, Zakir Hussain, Sean and Dolores Keane, Blas, Slide, Geraldine McGowan, John Carty and At the Racket, among others. Joseph McNulty is an accomplished musician on both fiddle and bodhrán. He credits a lot of his success to having spent years in the company of Peter Horan R.I.P. who was regarded as one of Sligo's finest musicians. Joseph has toured with Ragús in mainland Europe and has spent time working in the National Folk Theatre of Ireland. Highly recommended!

Born and raised in Wexford town, Pierce’s musical journey began as a boy soprano in his school choir and regularly sang in the local festival, an experience he describes as “Like living in a Catholic version of Pet Sounds” (The Beach Boys classic album). Spells in various beat groups, and folk rock groups ensued before he and long-time friend, (and future Black 47 singer/guitarist) Larry Kirwan set off for New York “Just to escape the restrictions of Ireland and my own self-inflicted restrictions.” They had a minor radio hit as a duo before forming a new wave band, The Major Thinkers. Since then Pierce has released numerous albums including 1996’s live ‘Manana in Manhattan’ the following year’s superb ‘Angelic Language’, 2001’s ‘Three Minute World’ which was voted “One of the hundred greatest Irish albums of all time” and 2004’s The Boy to be with” to great critical acclaim. Record companies and record stores have problems categorizing Pierce (one Irish shop currently stocks his releases in the Sean-Nos section!), but the man’s talent is unstoppable and deserves a far wider audience.

Commences 3pm All welcome, but please RSVP by emailing info@tseac.ie or call 01-8020898 Aidan Flanagan is a Meath based printmaker who specialises in creating original prints of the landscape of Ireland, real and imagined. For this exhibition, he has created a new body of work using and combining various printmaking techniques. The resulting work is a combination of editioned prints, monoprints and monotype prints. Some of these prints were influenced by, and commenced during recent residencies at the Cill Rialaig Art Project in Co. Kerry. His landscape works are also inspired as a result of his 34 years of service in the Irish Air Corps. During that service, he was privileged to have the opportunity of viewing the landscape of Ireland from a “bird's eye” perspective. Aidan learned the art of screen-printing on his own during late 1990's, learning further printmaking techniques through a series of workshops in Graphic Studio Dublin during 2012. He creates all his work from his home-based studio in Ratoath, Co. Meath. This is Aidan's third solo exhibition of prints, having previously exhibited at Toradh Gallery, Ashbourne; RHA; RUA; Graphic Studio Dublin; Solstice Arts Centre; Dunamaise Arts Centre; Carlow Visual; International Print Center, New York; Manhattan Graphics Center; Center for Contemporary Printmaking, Norwalk, Connecticut and Taller Galeria Fort, Cadaques, Spain. Aidan Flanagan’s work will be exhibited in our Easter Snow Gallery until the beginning of April 2017. Open daily, from 10am to 4.30pm. Admission is free.

Eleanor Shanley’s 2016 presented a busy year from the off, especially so on the back of her successful ‘Forever Young’ album launch last autumn. Spring was spent touring Canada with De Danann, and some very special Irish live shows including RTE Radio 1’s open-air concert in O’Connell St. Dublin as part of the city’s 1916 Commemorations. Spring 2017 will commence with a tour of Denmark; Eleanor was awarded The Danish Folk Music Award in 2015, a testament, were it needed, to her popularity in this market. She is only the second Irish artist to receive this honour since its inception 20 years ago. Eleanor’s last single, including ‘Smile’ and ‘Dragonflies’, signalled the final release to radio from her current album ‘Forever Young’ ahead of the release of her new album in 2017. In a career which has spanned over 20 years, Eleanor still possesses a voice as pure and lyrical as the first day she stepped in front of a microphone with De Danann in 1990. Renowned for her unique interpretation of Irish and Roots songs, Eleanor Shanley has been at the top of her profession since her first appearance with the legendary De Danann.

Disney-Pixar's Finding Dory reunites everyone’s favourite forgetful blue tang, Dory, with her friends Nemo and Marlin on a search for answers about her past. It's been one year since Dory helped Marlin recuse his son Nemo. The three of them have now become very close friends. One day when Dory remembers where her parents live, she, Marlin and Nemo head off on an epic quest to find them. What else can Dory remember? Who are her parents? And where did she learn to speak Whale? Their journey leads to them a Marine Life Institute where they begin a hilarious and heart-warming search and meet some new friends. Directed by Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo, WALL-E) the film features the voices of Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Ed O'Neill, Kaitlin Olson, Ty Burrell, Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton.

Slow Session Sun 19th Feb, 8pm See page 4

A big-hearted film, full of small, understated moments of magic, the New Zealand-based comedy-drama Hunt for the Wilderpeople is an off-kilter charmer. Ricky Baker (Julian Dennison) has been written off by Paula, his unkindly social worker, as a bad egg: “We’re talking disobedience, stealing, spitting, running away, throwing rocks, kicking stuff, loitering and graffiti,” she gravely explains to the youngster’s new foster mother, Aunt Bella. Bella wisely ignores her and soon wins the boy over with hot water bottles, birthday songs composed in his honour, and by butchering wild hog. The pair have just bonded when Bella dies unexpectedly, leaving Ricky in the care of gruff “Don’t call me uncle” Hec (Sam Neill). Terrified at the prospect of being returned to the unkindly Paula, Ricky soon takes off into the New Zealand bush with Hec in pursuit. They’re deep in the forest when Paula and her bumbling police sidekick Andy find an empty house, and the comically inept child services duo draw their own wild conclusions. A national manhunt ensues. Can Ricky and Hec stay ahead of the posse? “Irresistible!” Rolling Stone “Comic dynamite” The Guardian The People’s Movies Director: Taika Waititi, Duration: 163 mins Language: English, Cert: 16

This dynamic folk orchestra from the multicultural melting pot of Sligo’s music scene, formed in 2005, NoCrows’ growing output of original material reflects its diverse musical roots, from Irish traditional to Latin rumba, classical, jazz, rock and Balkan music. “Why Us?” contains thirteen original musical delights, five songs and eight instrumentals and was recorded in Rian Trench’s Meadow Studios in Wicklow in September 2016. The band’s most mature recording to date includes compositions by all six members and displays the growing presence of multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter, Ray Coen. “On this album” says Coen, “we have tried to capture the feel of our live performances, with all six of us recording together in one room. We believe that we have captured the essence of NoCrows on this CD”. NoCrows are: Felip Carbonell (guitar, percussion, voice), Ray Coen (guitar, fiddle, voice), Anna Houston (cello, mandolin, voice), Eddie Lee (double bass, electric bass, voice), Oleg Ponomarev (violin, voice) and Steve Wickham (fiddle, mandolin, viola, voice). “…oh, what a joy to listen to!” Irish Music Magazine “…a beautifully wrought selection of instrumental music… Swing rarely felt this good” Irish Times This is always a sell-out show at the SEAC, please book your tickets early to avoid disappointment!

“Seldom has conspicuous greatness been more accessible” CityLife “One Jools Holland Appearance away from runaway success” Manchester Music Review Recently signed to Peter Gabriel’s Real World Label and guesting member of Afro Celt Sound System, Honeyfeet have in Ríoghnach Connolly, one of the most striking front women on the scene at the moment. Someone called it folk-hop. Someone else called it barrelhouse-pop. Someone called it jazz-funk. It's definitely not that. Folky, poppy, bluesy goodness. Eat it all up, and grow big and strong. Songs about eating people! Dancing on graves! Infidelity! But it’s not all bad news. Manchester’s finest ethio-trad exponents have the skill, charm and (frankly) tunes to pull it all together into a joyful, foot-banging sound. Honeyfeet released the album ‘It's a Good Job I Love You’ in November 2013. Their next, as yet untitled album is due for release soon.

Doors 8pm Commences 8.30pm €13/€10 advance booking €15/€12 at the door From Co. Kerry, in a former life, Karrie O'Sullivan was a successful horse-breaker and remains a woman of the land, living and working on her farm. Her other lifelong passion has been, of course, music. Like any 'real' artist, she only writes music that comes from her soul, and is, in fact, a selfproclaimed “reluctant performer”. Karrie has previously appeared at the SEAC with Mary Coughlan (who will be recording two of Karrie’s songs for her next album). English singing star Rumer has also expressed an interest in recording one of Karrie’s songs for a 2017 album release. These, and many more endorsements from very credible sources, have validated Karrie's and others’ belief in the importance of her song-writing talent. “Which local star in any field should the world outside of Britain & Ireland know about? The Kerry singer Karrie, she has a beautiful voice.” Declan O' Rourke “Karrie O'Sullivan is Ireland's Joni Mitchell.” Sharon Shannon “I was driving late at night when I first heard Karrie’s song on the radio. Something in her voice connected with me and I pulled over to the hard shoulder and cried for about 20 minutes!” Mary Coughlan

Packed with that signature Aardman wit and charm, Shaun the Sheep will have you rolling in your seat with laughter so catch it if ewe can! - Toronto International Film Festival 2014

Inspired by the true story of Ireland’s biggest cocaine seizure in 2007, The Young Offenders is a comedy road movie about best friends Conor and Jock, two inner-city teenagers from Cork who dress the same, act the same, and even have the same bum-fluff moustaches. Jock is a legendary bike thief who plays a daily game of cat-and-mouse with the bike-theft-obsessed Garda Sergeant Healy. When a drug-trafficking boat capsizes off the coast of West Cork and 61 bales of cocaine, each worth €7m, are seized, word gets out that there is a bale missing. The boys steal two bikes and go on a road trip hoping to find the missing bale which they can sell, so as to escape their troubled home lives... but Sergeant Healy is in hot pursuit. Since its premiere at the Galway Film Fleadh where it was awarded Best Irish Feature, The Young Offenders has become the fastest Irish film to break the €1million mark at the Irish Box Office and has gone on to charm Irish and international audiences alike. “Sell all your cocaine and buy a ticket to see this film!” Graham Norton “Anarchically funny”

Jem Mitchell is a singer/songwriter from North East Dublin. Signed to A&M records America at 19 with Fire Water Creed, Jem moved to Los Angeles to hone his song-craft. Having fronted a number of indie rock bands in the late 80's/early 90's and following a 14-year hiatus, Jem has re-emerged onto the live music circuit and has been steadily gigging. His debut 5 track EP ‘Sweet Amphetamine’ was released in mid 2015 and has established him as an accomplished singer songwriter, with rave reviews and awarded best male vocal from Pure M magazine. Jem continues to collaborate with long-time friend and guitarist Ken Browne [Christy Dignam (Aslan) King Christian Sound (Ex Missing Link) Razorlove]. Also added to the lineup is the stalwart rhythm section of brothers John and Mark Colbert. Jem’s music has been described as alt country, drawing on a rich seam of Americana and roots music. Highly recommended!

Saturday 25th March Doors 8pm Commences 8.30pm €22/€18 advance booking €25/€20 at the door Mick Flannery is an Irish singer-songwriter. His debut album Evening Train resulted from his time spent studying music and management at Coláiste Stiofáin Naofa in Cork. It featured tracks which had previously won Flannery two categories at the International Songwriting Competition in Nashville, Tennessee, as judged by his idol, Tom Waits. Following the release of his #1 album By The Rule in 2014, Mick Flannery took a short break and began writing again in 2015. His latest album I Own You features some of Mick’s finest material to date. Basing himself between the counties of Cork & Clare, Mick was moved and motivated by current events around the world, specifically one tragic event in April 2015 that inspired the title track. Speaking very directly, Mick states; "The song ‘I Own You’ is based on the idea of the "poor man" breaking into the "rich man's" house. It was inspired by wealth inequality in capitalist societies. It was also informed by the Baltimore riots, after the killing of Freddie Gray by police. I hoped the song would portray the anger felt by disenfranchised, powerless people. The video is intended to send the message that the greed of the super-rich must at some stage be reckoned with". “I Own You is arguably his most impressive record yet.” The Irish Examiner Don’t miss Mick Flannery up-close in the intimate setting of the SEAC.

Based on real events, Fontaine explores this fraught situation with great humanity and sensitivity. Mathilde protects the nuns not only from further attacks but also from the convents hierarchy who wish to conceal the scandal at all costs. “Played with restraint and individuality by a fine ensemble, this is a moving but provocative study of belief, duty, compassion and acceptance.” David Parkinson, Empire Director: Anne Fontaine, Duration: 115 minutes, Language: French, Polish & Russian (with English Subtitles), Cert: 15 (UK)

All welcome, but please RSVP by emailing info@tseac.ie or call 01-8020898 Recently considered for the East End Painting Prize, London. Leonard Sexton received an equivalent Bachelor of Art and Design from D.I.T. Dublin in 1987, majoring in painting. He cites conversations with the painter Patrick Graham as forming the major part of this training. In a career spanning nearly thirty years as a full-time painter, he has exhibited in England, Ireland and the US and has had work shown at major art fairs. His work forms a part of many private collections. His Broken Halo series completed in 2008, is housed in part of Dublin's UCD University. Since then his painting has tried to personalize and draw comparisons between certain social and political ideals. Titles of bodies of work from the last decade include 'The Ballad of Arthur Mac Bride', the negotiating of lives; ‘Images from the Life of a Dancer’, their connection to the world outside; 'The over Familiar’, the inclusion of all in one space; ‘A Matter of Unsustainable Weight’, depicting the structures and weakness of mankind; ‘A London Room’, the awareness of waiting and what we do in time, and currently a large body of work influenced by the text of Dante's Inferno. He was selected to paint RADA, exhibited at the National Theatre for Buro Four and included in the selected group representing Irish Art at Westminster Hall. Leonard Sexton’s work will be exhibited in our Easter Snow Gallery until the end of May 2017. Open daily, from 10am to 4.30pm. Admission is free.

The Clan recounts the astonishing true story of a seemingly normal middle-class family that trafficked in the kidnapping, ransoming and murder of the wealthy. The disappeared - los desaparecidos - are words that carry special resonance in Argentina. Long associated with the crimes of the military junta of the 1970s, the term takes on a different, but no less chilling, meaning in the hands of filmmaker Pablo Trapero. On the surface the Puccios look like most other families. Steely-eyed patriarch Arquimedes presides over a household where his wife, sons, and daughters gather for evening meals and discuss their days; but can anyone be innocent of complicity in a crime when they hear and ignore the screams coming from the basement? “A story so nuts it could only be true.” Indiewire “Full of Scorsese-like swagger.” “A thrilling crime saga.”

Donegal, The Henry Girls’ music is infused with the rich cultural heritage of their native Donegal but with a transatlantic flavour. Over the last number of years, they have become one of the finest Irish exponents of folk/roots music. Their shimmering harmonies and delicate musicianship have been revered since their early days but in the last number of years they have been renowned for their song-writing skills; having successfully learned to interweave their traditional roots with contemporary elements, earning them both commercial success and spectacular critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic. Since the release of their highly acclaimed 2011 album ‘December Moon’ they have toured extensively in Europe and America and recorded their second album, ‘Louder Than Words’ once again with legendary producer Callum Malcolm (The Blue Nile, Heidi Talbot). The print reviews have been strong too, with fRoots magazine describing their music as “full bodied and powerfully dynamic” while Music News Nashville proclaimed “get ready to listen, folks, because this is something special”. The Henry Girls are renowned for their captivating, heart-warming and often moving live performances. Those fortunate enough to see them ‘live’ on stage will all agree with the sentiments of The Irish Times who simply described the experience as “a joy”.

Workshop & Independent Event / Ceardlann & Imeacht Neamhspleách

Saturdays (from 28th January) From 10am - 12pm Suitable for adults & teenagers ages 16+ €40 booking deposit, payable in advance €20 per session (a total of €240 for 12 sessions, the rest payable weekly). Do you think “art” is only for artists? Do you struggle to manage your stress, time, energy or money? Does self-care come behind everything else in your life? Join Anne McDonald for a 12 week program using the works of Julia Cameron to reawaken your creativity, reenergise your life and learn how to take as much care of yourself as you do for others. Each 2 hour workshop will show you how to help you take a step back from your busy life to slow down, achieve more and set goals for your own self-care and creativity. Sessions include discussion and exercises based on Cameron’s book each week followed by a creative activity. No skill required! Anne McDonald has worked for many years with groups and individuals in Ireland and the UK to help them build strong personal and professional boundaries and to prioritise their own self-care and creativity. She believes that whereas we encourage children to play from the moment they are born, we lose the ability to play as adults and in doing so, lose the one thing that will help us deal with the stress of modern day living, our imagination.
