Monday 4th, November’s Kilmainham Arts Club

The Kilmainham Arts Club takes place next Monday, November 4th at

The Patriots Inn, Kilmainham. Please be there on time, seats 8pm, we will kick off at 8.30pm sharp.

Hello All,

In place of our regular Kilmainham Arts Club, for November, Kilmainham Arts Club is delighted to host a unique performance event by Stephen James Smith & Enda Reilly. The pair offer a fusion of traditional and contemporary music and poetry that is both compelling and exhilarating.

The Smith & Reilly ‘Arise and Go!’ album has received critical acclaim and as a result Stephen and Enda have tour extensively around the Irish festival circuit, as well as around the UK and Europe.

Their video of ‘September 1913’ has featured on RTÉ’s arts show The Works and on the IFTA award winning documentary ‘No Country for Old Men’.

"Occasionally, just occasionally something truly beautiful, original and enticing comes to your ears. And when it does it strikes deep and lingers long. ‘Arise & Go!’ from Stephen James Smith and Enda Reilly does that and more." -Tim Carroll Folk Words
