July for what is his sixth consecutive tour of the country. On his Irish
tour three years ago, Gary met singer songwriter Janet Holmes and
musician Colin Henry, both from Belfast, Northern Ireland. Janet is
known throughout Ireland as a beautiful singer and a talented songwriter and
currently has two albums on release. Colin is a well known
multi-instrumentalist with his main instrument being the resonator guitar of
Dobro. Colin toured with Gary for the last two years and on some gigs Janet
joined them on stage. This year they have decided to make it permanent and

and the musicianship is of the highest standard. This is original acoustic
music at its best.

Voices Theatre Company
are for the Dark"
27th May 2010 @ 8.30 p.m.
Other Voices Theatre
Company in Town Hall
Voices Theatre Company presents a stunning, unique evening of dramatic
entertainment: We are for the Dark, three one-act plays
encompassing a gamut of emotions from joy to despair, experienced by three
very different women with one shared trajectory, the are heading into ‘the
dark’. The Bright Day is Done: a new play by internationally
acclaimed screenwriter Gerald Wilson: a young journalist comes to interview
an ageing actress and inveigles her into recreating some of her most
acclaimed roles – but he is not what he seems. Baglady by
Frank McGuinness: an old woman is trapped in a surrealist nightmare of the
past as she confronts – and is confronted by – the abused child she once
was; an innovative interpretation of a work by one of Ireland’s leading
playwrights. The Jewish Wife by Bertolt Brecht: It is Germany,
1935 - a Jewish wife packs her bags as a nightmare of the future looms. It
is a recurrent motif of tragedy; every day someone, somewhere, harassed by
prejudice and fanaticism, is packing a bag or making a bundle. It adds up to
a programme that is emotionally evocative, thought-provoking and always,

Trad Group GRÁDA in Town
Gráda is one of Ireland's most
successful touring bands, performing over 150 concerts across the globe
annually at major festivals and venues such as The National Geographic
Headquarters in Washington DC, The Royal Glasgow Concert Hall and the Sydney
Their sound is deeply rooted in the Irish tradition, but also layered with
fresh, jazzy tones and strong rhythmic grooves. Gráda have released
three critically acclaimed CDs to date and have just finished recording
their fourth CD in Nashville.
Gráda are: Nicola Joyce (vocals, bodhrán) from Galway; Gerry
Paul (guitar, banjo, vocals); Andrew Laking (double bass, vocals,
guitar); David Doocey (fiddle, concertina, whistle) from Mayo. David
is at the forefront of the younger generation of Irish traditional
musicians, having won several All Ireland awards on concertina and fiddle
and last but by no means least, Stephen Doherty also from Mayo,
(flute, whistle, melodeon, piano, bodhrán). Stephen is an All Ireland senior
flute champion and award winning accordion and bodhrán player.
New Album ‘Natural Angle’
On their new CD, ‘Natural Angle’, Irish band Gráda launches headlong
into the cross-genre world of new acoustic music, bridging traditional Irish
and Appalachian tunes and songs with Americana songwriting. Gráda, whose
name means "gradient" in Irish, have always drawn on their melting pot of
influences from New Zealand and Ireland.
On this CD the American edge and bluegrass twang set their Irish melodies
and styles in sharp relief. Four of the twelve tracks are American
songs—although some of those have older Irish roots—and there are three
original songs from the band, including, for the first time, an original
song by vocalist Nicola Joyce. Gráda sought out famed bluegrass musician
and singer Tim O'Brien, whom they had met at the Tonder Festival in Denmark
in 2005, to produce the CD in Nashville. Capturing the explosive energy of
the band in the discipline of a Nashville studio was a challenge and a
Gráda's improvisatory relish may seem at an angle to how people think about
Irish traditional music, but it's natural for this quintet. With an
acoustic, contemporary sound, Natural Angle’s free, loose feeling focuses on
melodies both new and old, Irish and Appalachian. Supported by the band’s
unrivaled instrumental prowess and emotive vocals, Natural Angle captures
the tangible excitement and explosive energy Gráda brings to over 150 stages
in 20 countries year after year.
Gráda is appearing @ the
Town Hall Theatre, Kiltimagh on Thurs. 13th
May 2010 at 9.00 p.m
Garrymore Drama Group
'Pull the Other One' -
16th April 2010 @ 8.30 p.m.
Garrymore Drama Group, is proud to present “Pull the
Other One”, a comedy by well known Playwright, Norman Robbins.
play, Albert Perkins is blessed with a loving wife Muriel and cursed with a
fearsome mother in-law, Boadicea. When his good friend Hilary Armitage
writes to him reminiscing about good times they used to have, Boadicea reads
the letter and determines to remove her daughter instantly from the clutches
of this sex-fiend. Albert has a hard time explaining that the letter is
perfectly innocent, and anyway Hilary is a man. It isn't helped when he
turns up wearing a blonde wig and a glamorous dress. By the time Hilary
manages to explain that he has just come straight from doing his drag act at
the local pub, it's late and Boadicea has bashed Albert with the poker and
even when he comes round, Albert's troubles are far from over. In a weak
moment, he agrees to model for a girl student wearing mainly a potted plant
and Hilary, anxious to make amends for the misunderstanding he has caused,
offers to deputise for Albert at bell ringing practice at St Humphrey's.
Both these acts of kindness bring disaster in their wake.
