An Evening of Improvised Sound and Music at King House, Boyle, Saturday 28th September
Some of the leaders and performers in the DIY music scene make their way to King House, Boyle on Saturday 28th September, 8pm for 'An Evening of Improvised Music and Sound'. Members of the public are invited to come along for this FREE event where musicians such as Ed Devane, Fergus Cullane, David Donohue, Ailbhe Nic Oireachtaigh, John Picardo, David Lacey and more will come together for a completely unique and totally improvised gig using a wide range of instruments including grand-piano, viola, clarinet, bass-clarinet, synthesizers, home-made electronics, percussion and more.
For some of the performers this is an experiment in sound, for others it's an unknown melodic journey - what they will all try to do is create something new and coherent in the moment without the constraints of rehearsals of musical notes. Audiences should expect the unexpected! Saturday 28th September, 8pm | FREE
The Legend of Luke Kelly lives on
Chris Kavanagh, hailed by many as being as great as the real man himself, returns to Roscommon Arts Centre on Saturday 5th October with his show 'The Legend of Luke Kelly' celebrating the music and lyrics of one of Ireland's all time greatest folk musicians. Following on from his sell-out performances in Roscommon previously early booking is highly recommended and with tickets just €17.50 it's a bargain. Booking through Roscommon Arts Centre's box office 090 6625824 or online www.roscommonartscentre.ie.
Take a trip into 'Eden'
'Eden' written by acclaimed playwright and author of RTE's drama series 'Pure Mule' comes to Roscommon Arts Centre on Tuesday 1stOctober, 8pm. This hard-hitting night of theatre takes place over one weekend as the decade-long marriage of Billy and Breda reaches boiling point. What takes place is an insight into a relationship on the verge of break-down. Highly recommended and not for the easily offended. Booking through Roscommon Arts Centre's box office 090 6625824 or online at www.roscommonartscentre.ie.
