Kilmainham Arts Club
The Patriots Inn, Kilmainham
Seats 8pm show 8.30pm sharp
Kilmainham Arts Club is, quite simply, a brilliant event which lights up Dublin’s artistic scene; thanks to the talented artists who show their work, share their stories and perform for an appreciative and warm audience.
This month we feature two visual artists: the accomplished and popular painter Robert Shaw, whose new work is all about seascapes.
And Fiona Aryan will show her illustrations of foxes which she modelled from some urban foxes she got to know, and tell the story of what inspired her illustrations.
We have two contrasting book presentations, the first from Pat Upton – his new, self-published work Mayoings: Hillwalking, the Landscape Poetry of Ancient China, and Mayo.
Secondly, Bobby Aherne’s debut work D’You Remember Yer Man? published by New Island Books, is a light-hearted romp through Dublin’s street characters.
The comedian Eleanor Tiernan will perform stand-up comedy.
Eleanor, a fast, honest and smart comedien, has performed at the Kilkenny Cat Laughs Comedy Festival, the Galway Comedy Festival, in Best of Irish at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, at the Vodafone Comedy Festival.
We will screen the short film ‘I’ve been a Sweeper’ which was winner of Fingal Film Festival Best Student film. This beautiful film was directed by Ciaran Dooley and produced by Mark Holland.
The fantastic new accapella group Vocal Point (Paul Glennon,Gwen Moore,Colm Fewer and Alison Daniel) will perform.
Our main music act for the night is the extraordinary guitarist Pat Coldrick. Pat is hugely versatile and talented, known both as a session guitarist and a classical guitarist. His latest album ‘Cayendo’ is out now and available from iTunes
All of that, plus a fun crowd and it’s free with just a raffle for costs. Spoiling you now.
