Irish Famine Museum

Irish Famine Exhibition The Irish Potato Famine was the most catastrophic event in Ireland’s turbulent history. It is also regarded as being one of the worst Famines in history (deaths as a proportion to population). The use of the word ‘Famine’ in this context is controversial, for Ireland at the time was part of the richest Empire in the World (the British Empire). There was sufficient food in the country throughout the ‘Famine’ years, yet over a million people died from starvation and disease, and millions more were forced to flee. Some historians prefer to use the name ‘Great Hunger’ to describe this period of mass death from starvation and disease. This exhibition tells the story of what happened during those horrific years. We use rare 19th century photographs, witness accounts, contemporary sketches as well as maps and statistical information. A 15 minute film with seating is included in the exhibition and the average time spent by visitors is 1 hour. A DVD of the exhibition can also be purchased at the venue. This exhibition is dedicated to all victims of the Irish Potato Famine or The Great Hunger. Please go to Irish Famine Museum for more information

The first is his 1986 release, ‘Into The Light’, which Chris had shrewdly envisaged could be the record that might place him fully centre stage as an international artist – and so it proved, thanks to one song in particular: ‘The Lady In Red’. It was the composition which finally established him as a known singer-songwriter around the world and has since become an undeniable evergreen classic. It achieved No. 1 status in 47 countries, including the UK, reached No.2 in America and has now sold in excess of 8 million copies. To this day, it remains one of the most played songs on the planet; in America alone, it has been the recipient of six annual ASCAP (Association of Composers and Publishers) Awards, presented to acknowledge it as among the Top 20 most played records in the United States in a period of 12 months. The second album is ‘Moonfleet & Other Stories’, from 2010, which took Chris on the most ambitious, demanding and evocative journey of his long career which, by then, had resulted in albums sales approaching 50 million worldwide. “I gave myself the biggest challenge in writing and recording that album,” Chris estimates. “It was very […]

Joseph “Joe” Gatto, James “Murr” Murray, Brian “Q” Quinn, and Salvatore “Sal” Vulcano are collectively known as the The Tenderloins, the quartet rose to fame on the reality TV programme, Impractical Jokers. Premiering on TruTV in December 2011, the hidden camera series sees the friends coerce one another into doing public pranks. It quickly set itself apart from its contemporaries by filling the show with clever humour rather than slapstick or crude comedy. Recent pranks have seen members of The Tenderloins fall instantly head-over-heels for a stranger, make some unusual suggestions in a city planning meeting, and attempt to gift-wrap shoppers’ groceries in a supermarket. In early 2018, TruTV announced the renewal of Impractical Jokers, taking it into its eighth season. The 26 brand new episodes are set to be aired from February 2019, with a feature-length film also in the works. The Tenderloins have announced that they’ll be returning to the UK in October 2019 with a brand new show. Their live shows see the four-piece bring their improv and comedy experiences to stages across the UK, blended with footage and associated stories from the hit TV show.

Multi-platinum Icelandic quintet Of Monsters and Men have announced a run of UK and European dates in support of their new album FEVER DREAM, including an Olympia Theatre date on Thursday 23rd October! Of Monsters and Men went from the talk of Iceland to the top of the global conversation on their 2011 debut, My Head Is An Animal. Not only did the record go platinum, but it also produced an international smash in the form of “Little Talks.” The breakthrough single earned a quintuple-platinum certification from the RIAA, made history as “the first song by an Icelandic band to cross 1 billion streams on Spotify,” and landed the band a performance onSaturday Night Live. The group appeared on official soundtracks for franchises such as The Hunger Games, The Walking Dead, and Beat Bugs, to name a few. In the midst of this rapid rise, 2015’s Beneath The Skin bowed in the Top 3 of the Billboard Top 200 and the band starred in an episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones in the same year.

Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark, one of the UK’s most iconic bands, are back with their first new album in 14 years, the appropriately entitled ‘History Of Modern’. And what a return. Andy McCluskey has called it ‘our best album since Architecture and Morality’ – and few would disagree. The album was produced by OMD and mixed by one of the UK’s most in demand producers Mike Crossey (Artic Monkeys/Blood Red Shoes/Razorlight). ‘History of Modern’ is a powerful, pulsating, vibrant and contemporary album with a strong pop sensibility. Tracks such as ‘Pulse’, ‘Save Me’, ‘Sister Marie Says’ and ‘The Future’ are huge future dancefloor fillers while others like the downtempo ‘Bondage Of Fate’, ‘If You Want It’ and ‘Sometimes’ are quite simply beautiful, classic OMD songs.

Since emerging in 2012, singer, songwriter, and producer Blackbear has released alt-R&B albums Deadroses , Digital Druglord , and Cybersex — each extolling the pleasures of sex, drugs, and luxury consumerism. His streaming hits, the platinum-selling “Idfc” and the double-platinum “Do Re Mi” (“Do Re Mi, I’m so fucking done with you girl”), further established the 28-year-old. Blackbear is no musical lightweight. He’s an effortless songwriter with a keen ear for melody, a knack for distilling complicated ideas into tight, precise lyrical spaces, and a relentless perfectionist who prizes technical excellence as a producer and mixer. Aside from his own prolific output of singles and EPs, Blackbear earned his bones working with the likes of Pharrell Williams, Nick Jonas, Childish Gambino, Linkin Park, and — most notably — Justin Bieber, for whom he co-wrote the 6x-platinum single “Boyfriend” with his friend and Mansionz collaborator Mike Posner. A savvy entrepreneur, who also runs his own label, Beartrap Sound, Blackbear became the first recording artist ever to monetize his own Soundcloud.

At the end of the 1970s momentous change was afoot in Britain and the world – in society, politics, fashion and culture – and the musical landscape was also about to change forever. The guitar-driven dominance that had propelled rock and punk throughout the decade was about to end, as synthesizers signalled the sound of the future and video transformed the look of the pop charts. The 1980s were about to explode into life and nothing would be the same again. At the heart of this seismic leap into a futuristic new dawn were two records that set the template for much of what was to follow. Visage’s single ‘Fade To Grey’ from the band’s debut eponymous album and Ultravox’s single ‘Vienna’ from the album of the same name were global hits that shared the same stark ambience, European aesthetic and electronic heart. The albums that birthed those landmark singles expanded that sonic palette even further and brought the art-school alternative into the very centre of the mainstream.

Think of a beautiful tapestry with many vibrant colours. Think Blues, Soul & Jazz. This is the stunning voice of Niamh Strong. Born into the entertainment business, her father Rob Strong is the legendary Blues performer, and brother Andrew Strong was Decco Cuff in The Commitments. Niamh first lifted a microphone at the tender age of 9 when her father was jamming with other musicians, astonishing everyone in the room with an impressive blues run. There and then, it was obvious this little girl had natural talent. Niamh joined her band The Three at 18 and penned several original songs. Four of these songs were selected for her first demo. John Polinsky, a musical lawyer from New York, heard this demo and arranged two showcases in New York in Arlene’s Grocery Store and the Cutting Rooms. Several A&R people from different major record labels attended the showcases which were a huge success. Niamh finally decided to go with Robert E. Pineda from Ray Charles’ company. She was brought to Los Angeles to record one of the original songs and shoot a video. Blues Legend Ray Charles described Niamh as having “moments of genius in her voice.” Niamh returned home to […]

Brought together in Stockholm by guitarists Peter Lindgren and Mikael Åkerfeldt in 1990, Opeth added progressive influences and acoustic instrumentation to their brand of Swedish death metal. As the group progressed, it was very common for an Opeth live set to fly in several different musical directions — and an average song lasted no less than ten minutes. Impressed by their originality, Candlelight Records released their debut full-length in 1995, which was titled Orchid, and featured a rhythm section of bassist Johan de Farfalla and drummer Anders Nordin. Edge of Sanity mastermind Dan Swano produced the band’s ambitious second album, Morningrise, in 1996, after which they embarked on a brief tour with Morbid Angel. Century Media took notice and not only licensed Opeth’s first two albums for the United States, but also planned on releasing their next album on both sides of the Atlantic. With the recruitment of bassist Martin Mendez and drummer Martin Lopez (ex-Amon Amarth) to replace the departed de Farfalla and Nordin, Opeth’s third album, My Arms, Your Hearse, was released in 1998 to glowing reviews, establishing the band as a leading force in progressive metal with death roots.

When The Haunted Host premiered at the infamous Caffe Cino in Greenwich Village in 1964, it did so illegally due to its explicit portrayal of homosexuality. This play – coming a half decade before the Stonewall Riots of 1969 – was one of many artistic catalysts that propelled the early Gay Rights Movement in the United States. Jay is an eccentric Greenwich Village homosexual with a gift for playwriting. He is haunted by the untimely passing of his former lover, Ed.  Frank is a young, straight man in search of a playwriting mentor and a place to stay for the night. When Jay opens the door to realise that Frank is a dead-ringer for the late Ed, he sees an opportunity to re-enact the past and absolve himself of old sins. With lightning-fast dialogue that’ll have your cheeks wet and hot with laughter, the two deconstruct truths about art, gender, drugs, society, death, sexual orientation, friendship, love and how much you can give to a person without losing yourself in the process. Written by Robert Patrick, the most produced playwright of the Off-Off-Broadway scene, Melia Theatre Company are delighted to present the Irish premiere of this riotous comedy. This is […]

“It’s not fair!” The notion of justice is of paramount importance to children, and key to the appeal of the Cinderella story. But whatever your favourite version, you will find something uniquely dark, yet sparkling and touchingly redemptive in Rossini’s La Cenerentola. This production unfolds from the very pages of books and celebrates the idea of literature, of fantasy, of escapism, and most importantly of Goodness Triumphant. The age-old fairytale resonates as much today as it did in times gone by. The story of Cinderella has been whisked up into an opera many times. But only once with the sparkle and affection of Rossini’s version of 1817. The title role is taken by Tara Erraught, Ireland’s most sought-after singer, who is celebrated for her rich vocal fireworks and dynamic stage presence, and is especially acclaimed in the operas of Rossini.

Three reclusive former child stars are forced to sell their lavish South Dublin home when they finally run out of money after years of living to excess. Having gathered to mourn their manager’s death, things begin to get weird. Long held secrets come unravelled, a popular dance craze takes on new importance, lifelong friendships are tested and a dead dog oversees it all. Are these overgrown children ready to leave behind their fantasy world for a life more ordinary? “Hollow and Dead-Eyed Beasts” is a sort-of-kind-of-comedy; a bit about friendship, not quite regarding fame, almost concerning childhood with one hand vaguely in the area of death whilst also enjoying a passing reference to a popular 90s dance craze with the faintest nod to ritual and only slightly on the subject of the housing market (though having nowhere near enough of a perspective to qualify as satire). And this is all to say nothing of the really rather dead dog. Brought to you by Some People Theatre Company, the team behind the sell-out Dublin Fringe Festival show “White” (Pick of the Fringe 2018. – The Sunday Times, “Simultaneously cutting and laugh out loud funny” – MEG.ie, “At times exceptional, vividly satirical” […]

But more than the cultural diversity of the individual players, the defining characteristic of Snarky Puppy’s music is the joy of performing together in the perpetual push to grow creatively.

Belfast’s Bright Umbrella Drama Company present a fast paced, modern military dress version of Shakespeare’s classic of jealousy, anger and mistaken revenge. The Turks are attacking Cyprus and General Othello, ‘The Moor’, is sent with an army by the Venetian Duke to stop their advance.  In the claustrophobic atmosphere of a Cypriot military stockade, the psychopathic Iago convinces Othello that his wife, Desdemona, is having an affair with The Moor’s right-hand man, Captain Cassio. The result is an explosion of mistaken motives, violence and murder.  Shakespeare’s original script abridged to 130 minutes including interval. ‘Othello is a triumph for the Bright Umbrella Drama Co… Sam Mahadeo’s Othello uses light and shade across his performance… Glenn McGivern plays scheming Iago as a brutal bully hidden in plain sight, never showing signs of weakness… Bryony Randall gave Desdemona a sense of pluck, looking up adoringly at her new husband Othello and delivering tender moments – and some sweet singing – but also capable of turning up the emotion when its required… As a story of racism, love, deception and jealousy, misplaced trust and loyalty, and hyped up with planted evidence, suffocation and revenge killing … the universal themes of Othello certainly resonate […]

Five years after his last comedy tour FORCE MAJEURE made comedy history having played 45 countries including all 50 US States AND in four languages, making it the most extensive comedy show ever, EDDIE is back to his roots with an all-new rather personal show which expands on his own very unique, totally surreal view of life, love, history and his ‘theory of the universe’. “It is getting close to the time when I have to go off for a while to have a political life. But before I do that, I want to keep giving audiences around the world the best stand-up comedy shows that I can – especially at a time of Brexit-hate and Trump-hate. My new show is about everything from humans over the last 100,000 years to talking dogs and animal superheroes. I am looking forward to coming to see everyone again.” WUNDERBAR is a delicious insight into the surreal and fantastical world of EDDIE IZZARD. This is intelligent Bunkum of the highest order. Presented by Mick Perrin Worldwide Ltd. This show may contain strong and imaginative language.
