JOHN SPILLANE, Eleanor Shanley, Frankie Lane, Mick Hanly, and Paul Kelly are coming together for a major night of folk’n’trad entitled Folk The Recession.
Folk The Recession takes place in Monroe’s Backstage Bar tomorrow from 8.30pm.
Eleanor Shanley, the only female singer ever to record with the Dubliners, has been touring with The Fleadh Cowboys’ Frankie Lane and Paul Kelly for the past three years across Europe and Ireland. She enjoyed a successful collaboration with the late, great, Ronnie Drew, and toured Ireland, China, and the US with De Danann.
Mick Hanly is one of Ireland’s finest singer/songwriters and is best known for ‘Past The Point of Rescue’ made famous by Hal Ketchum in the USA and Mary Black in Ireland. Mick has been singing and writing since the 1970s and he served for a time as lead singer with Moving Hearts.
John Spillane has described his native Cork as “the centre of the universe” and it has been a huge influence on this singer-songwriter, and his quirky, clever, and intelligent folk-pop has earned him much critical success and popular support.
Tickets are €15 from Monroe’s. For more information contact Monroe’s on 091 - 583397 or 087 - 9783245.
