Shadows And Light -The Songs & Stories of Joni Mitchell - Saturday 30th September, 8pm,Tickets €18.50/€16 (plus €1 Booking Fee)
The three-piece Shadows and Light perform stunning interpretations of iconic singer songwriter Joni Mitchell’s legendary song book, including classics from the landmark ‘Blue’ album, along with numbers like ‘Hejira’, ‘Secret Place’ and ‘Hissing of Summer Lawns’. With vocalist Maura Vambeck, Dave Mulligan on guitar and Paul Enright on keyboard, their hypnotic performance of the lyrics and life of Joni brings to vivid life Joan Anderson, the poet, artist and mother.
Maura: “I have been haunted by Joni Mitchell for years. Since college days, when my room-mate played her hits over and over on CDs, sang them with a guitar, or played them on the piano. The
piano sat where most people’s TVs sat. Her lyrics haunt me too. I’ve always been one for lyrics. They roll around on my tongue till I get used to them. It has been so cool to finally get a chance to sing some of her tunes with great musicians who love this music nearly more than me!”
Ritchie Remo - Friday 13th October, 8pm,Tickets €20.00 (plus €1 Booking Fee)
Ritchie has been busy touring all over the North of Ireland in various theatres for the last three years. Each tour gets bigger and better. As he has started to play dance venues in the South this year, he has decided that now is his time to branch out with his concert tour also.
The #CountryBoy tour consists of special guests including a primary school and Ritchie, along with his concert tour big band, entertaining the crowds for over 2 hours.
Ritchie is renowned for giving his fans what they want, his show will have the audience singing along and dancing as he invites people on stage to dance the hucklebuck with him.
As his fan base is expanding in County Tipperary and he always love the craic down there, this was an obvious choice to kick start the Southern phase of the tour.

Mick Hanly & Donal Lunny - Saturday 11th November, 8pm, Tickets €20.00/€18.00 (plus €1 Booking Fee)
I suppose it was inevitable that two stalwarts of the Irish music scene, whose careers have intertwined many times over the last 45 years would sooner or later emerge in the guise of a musical duo. The combination of songwriter Mick Hanly and multi-instrumentalist and composer Donal Lunny is a marriage made in musical heaven. Both have honed their musical skills to perfection and play with a freshness and enthusiasm that belies their years on the road.
In the 70’s Lunny produced Hanly’s two folk albums, the much loved Kiss In The Morning Early and As I Went Over Blackwater for Mulligan Records. After his departure from the ground breaking Planxty, he went on to found and fronting the hugely influential Bothy Band. After some years on the Continent with Andy Irvine, Hanly decided to go it alone and explore a more contemporary song writing style. However, their paths crossed again when Hanly took over from Christy Moore as vocalist in Moving Hearts. After 14months with the band he quit to concentrate on song writing. The Hearts went on to record the magnificent instrumental album The Storm, which contained Lunny’s beautiful composition Tribute to Peadair O’Donnell. Lunny also founded Coolfin and continued to produce and play on a variety projects too numerous to mention.
Meanwhile, Hanly clocked a huge success in the US with ‘Past The Point Of Rescue’. Recorded by Hal Ketchum….. it picked up a 3rd BMI award in 2002 for 2 Million plays on American radio. His songs were also recorded by the likes of Dolores Keane, Mary Black, Ronnie Drew, Delbert McClinton, etc. When recording his latest album, Homeland, Hanly again called on Lunny to add his unique sound to 4 of the tracks. The album is a joy. Hanly is joined by many of his old friends as he grapples with bringing a traditional influence to some brand new stories. Lunny, as always adding his unique touches to the mix.
