MOUNTSHANNON Arts will to present an evening of music and poetry at St Caimin’s Church of Ireland, on Friday, December 17 at 8pm.
The night will begin with a recital from Bríd O’Gorman, Cyril O’Donoghue and Clí Donnellan presenting a mix of music, song and familiar melodies. Each of these artists have independently produced their own CDs and have performed together with other musicians over the years. They are very excited to perform as a trio for this recital.
This performance is followed by a poetry reading from Michael Durack, a Ballina poet with East Clare roots. He will include poems from his most recent book ‘Flipsides’.
The final performance will be from John Canny, Pat O’Connor and Terence O’Reilly. This trio have performed the best of East Clare traditional music for many years both at home and abroad, having produced CDs independently and together. Mountshannon Arts are delighted to be able to have them perform live on the night. This is a free Christmas event and has been funded by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sports & Media and Clare County Council under the Live Local Outdoor Performance Scheme.
