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

From its beginnings in 1980 as the Dublin International Organ Festival, Pipeworks has brought to Irish audiences a diverse programme of music-making with the organ at its centre, fully exploiting not only the wonderful range of instruments to be found in Ireland, but the splendid cathedrals, churches and concert halls which house them. Since 1980 Pipeworks has mounted sixteen major festivals, centred on the International Organ Competition which attracts young virtuosi from every corner of the world. These festivals have secured Ireland a respected position in the international organ-playing scene and enhanced the appreciation of Irish audiences for the King of Instruments, its unique and thrilling repertoire and the extraordinary talent of its players. In recent years Pipeworks has expanded its remit to explore Ireland’s organ heritage, and developed an education and outreach programme designed to introduce people to the organ, nurture young talent and help local communities in identifying and promoting their own instruments. Pipeworks has also presented ground-breaking series of complete works, including those of J.S. Bach, Felix Mendelssohn, Dieterich Buxtehude and Olivier Messiaen, as well as the complete organ symphonies of Louis Vierne, all given by organists resident in Ireland.

Lana Del Rey is an American singer-songwriter born in 1986 in Lake Placid, New York. Her debut single, Video Games, launched her into the public eye in 2011, becoming a huge viral hit when the video she produced received over 20 million hits online. The album that followed, Born To Die, was one of the best-selling albums of the year worldwide and included top 10 hits such as Blue Jeans and Summertime Sadness. Del Rey’s musical influences range from Frank Sinatra and Elvis to Bob Dylan and Eminem, and her own style is one that is hard to pinpoint. With a jazzy voice and often cinematic, atmospheric music, she is at times reminiscent of Hollywood from the Golden Era, but this classic style is enthused with the modern beats of hip hop, giving Del Rey a unique and instantly recognisable style all of her own.

The first comedy troupe composed of people with Asperger’s Syndrome performs their trademark absurdist sketches, ripe with hilarious wordplay and unexpected breaking of social conventions. “Instead of focusing on the condition, the four men who make up the troupe perform skits and monologues that reflect their thoughts, perspectives and offbeat sensibilities, often characterized by deadpan and absurd humor… the guys are not looking for sympathy laughs or polite applause. Their show is not an autism awareness campaign, they say. They want people to laugh simply because they’re funny.” – NewYork Times Running time : 90 mins including an interval Age Guideline : 11+ Follow Asperger’s Are Us on Facebook and for more information on the comedy troupe visit their website.

Legendary singer-songwriter and actor Kris Kristofferson has confirmed an extra Dublin concert date on 25th June. His original concert date at The Helix, Dublin on 24th June is now sold-out. Kris Kristofferson made his name in 1970s as a country music singer and songwriter with songs like Me and Bobby McGee and Help Me Make It through the Night. His songs have been performed by legends like Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash, along with Kris himself. A Star Is Born, the 1976 film in which he starred with Barbara Streisand, gave Kris his first hit movie appearance (and another hit album), a feat which has been repeated in the 1990s with appearances in films like Blade and Payback.
Kris Kristofferson has been making things happen his entire life. Born in Texas and raised in a military family, he was a Golden Gloves boxer who studied creative writing at Pomona College in California. The Phi Beta Kappa graduate earned a Rhodes scholarship to study literature at Oxford, where he boxed, played rugby and continued to write songs. After graduating from Oxford, Kristofferson served in the army as an Airborne Ranger helicopter pilot and achieved the rank of Captain. In 1965, Kristofferson turned down an assignment to teach at West Point and, inspired by songwriters like Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash, moved to Nashville to pursue his music. In addition to many other awards, Kristofferson is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, winner of the prestigious Johnny Mercer Award from the Songwriter Hall of Fame, and was honored with the American Veteran’s Association’s “Veteran of the Year Award” in 2002. For Kristofferson’s 70th birthday in 2006, his friends and admirers gifted him with a tribute CD, The Pilgrim: A Celebration of Kris Kristofferson. Stars including Willie Nelson, Russell Crowe, Emmylou Harris, Gretchen Wilson, Rosanne Cash, and Brian McKnight recorded 17 of Kristofferson’s compositions for the tribute. In […]

Foals are a British-based indie rock band. Originally formed by Jack Bevan and Yannis Philippakis, the band’s trajectory has been remarkable. They’ve earned critical acclaim (NME and Q Award wins, plus Mercury Prize, Ivor Novello and BRIT Award nominations) and fan devotion (1.7 million sales of their four Gold-certified albums, plus over half a billion streams at Spotify since 2015) in equal measure. And while the majority of contemporaries have fallen by the wayside, Foals continue to hit new peaks. Seen as one of the best live acts in the UK, Foals have once again embraced that love for the unconventional with the bravest and most ambitious project of their career: not one, but two astonishing new albums: Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost. A pair of releases, separate but related, they share a title, themes and artwork. Part 1 will be released on 8 March with Part 2 following in the autumn. A string of new dates to support the new releases kick off in June.

Born in Kansas City, Monáe had always dreamt of becoming a singer. She moved to New York City to pursue her dreams and studied drama at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy. Monáe released her first EP in 2003 called The Audition. The singer released her first solo full-length album, Metropolis, in 2005, and scored a Grammy Award nomination for Best Urban/Alternative Performance for her single Many Moons. In 2015, Monáe announced that with Epic Records, she’d created her own independent label, Wondaland Arts Society, an idea she had all those years ago. Now known as Wondaland Records, this made her one of the few African-American women in the industry who run their own record label.

Due to demand, Dylan Moran has announced four extra shows at Vicar St on 3, 4, 5 & 6 July 2019 with his show Dr Cosmos. Moran will once again offer his unique take on love, politics, misery and the everyday absurdities of life, all served with poetical panache from one of the finest comedians of his generation. Moran has been called the Oscar Wilde of comedy and his famed style – deadpan, witty and crackpot lyricism – promises to be an unmissable journey through his interpretations of the world, swerving cliche to offer a cutting blow to our idiosyncrasies. Dylan Moran is a comedian, actor and writer who, in 1996 at the Edinburgh Fringe, became the youngest ever winner of the Perrier Award. He went on to co-write and star in Black Books which won two BAFTAs. Other notable screen roles include Notting Hill, Calvary, Shaun of the Dead and Run Fatboy Run. Moran has toured the world many times, including versions of his show as far afield as Kazakhstan, Ukraine and across the US. His last tour, Off the Hook, took in 149 dates across the globe.
Most famous for his role as lead singer for Pearl Jam, a band that formed a fundamental part of the grunge music scene of Seattle in early nineties, Eddie Vedder became a reluctant pop icon much like his then contemporary Kurt Cobain. Alongside Nirvana, Alice in Chains and Soundgarden, Pearl Jam became the “voice of the passion and fears of a generation” according to Time magazine, on whose front cover Vedder was featured in October 1993. However, despite huge success for all the bands listed, Pearl Jam’s debut album, Ten, outsold them all, reaching platinum record sales 13 times over. Tackling difficult subjects such a depression and suicide, Vedder’s lyrics touched the otherwise disenfranchised youth of Generation X, connecting people through music in a way that had not felt possible by other genres of the time. Born in Illinois but raised mostly in California, Vedder’s first band, Bad Radio, although successful in his hometown of San Diego, never reached a larger audience. It wasn’t until ex drummer from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jack Irons, connected him to the other members of the band in 1990, that Pearl Jam became a possibility. Iron’s sent Eddie a demo tape of the […]
