We're delighted to have two returning musicians this month. Andy Lawlor accompanied Donal Coghlan last year and now is performing his own set with Karina Buckley. Also returning to the Sessions is Ronan Leonard who is currently recording a new CD set for release at the end of the month. We're also excited to have the Sillan Players perform an extract from their recently successful production of Una Pooka by Michael Harding. We hope to see you all there. It's going to be fun.
We're looking forward to kicking off St Patrick's weekend with our monthly Sessions on Friday March 16th downstairs at Nixy's as usual. Featuring comedian/poet Dave Hynes, Dublin indie-folk band Pine the Pilcrow, singer/songwriter Sam Geraghty and traditional musician Sharon Argue we're sure to be in for a great night's entertainment.
