Kilmainham Arts club March 3rd

Greetings All,

We are really looking forward to a great Kilmainham Arts Club on Monday March 3th and hope that you can join us.

As usual, it is in The Patriots Inn, Kilmainham, there is no cover charge and all are welcome. Come 8pm- we will start at 8.30pm sharp.

It is a chance to connect with other artists, make new friends and enjoy the variety of artistic talent that we are fortunate enough to have around us…

Upcoming singer/songwriter Robert Jones will play his original acoustic songs with folk and blues hues.

Fiona Dowling Visual Artist and Storyteller has as her artistic ambition ‘to be an open book, one with full colour illustrations’. Her paintings and drawings tells of heartbreaks and romance, of Buddha and the Beatles, of childhood longings and 1980s fashion with disarming honesty as well as an irrepressible sense of humour.

Fiona is currently creating new work for the Five Lamps Arts Festival, to include a show of erotic folktales and folksongs as well as a musical kitchen table. (attached see image)

Sean Ruane, a Meath poet whose one-man show ran at the fringe in Edinburgh in August, shares his uniquely engaging poetic performance with us.

David Thomas Smith has studied Documentary Photography but as an artist has pushed the boundaries of his practise – images of earth taken by satellite are transformed into artistic pieces which explore our origins. Smith’s works have been exhibited internationally, they have also appeared in a diverse number of publications from Esquire, Wired Magazine and The Huffington Post.

Poet Maeve O’Sullivan, featured recently on Arena, will read from her just published work ‘Vocal Chords’. This is Maeve’s second collection of poetry from Alba Publishing following her debut collection of Haiku poetry ‘Initial Response’.

Jig Time – featuring Two Fiddles, Two Flutes, Concertina and Guitar – come together to produce an intricate and subtle set of Irish Traditional Music.

“We nod to the bodhrán and whistle players.

We sing. Our instruments are invisible. We carry them

everywhere. They are our own, and only

they can marry the words to the tunes.”

(excerpt from the title poem from ‘Vocal Chords’)
