The highly successful Summertime Cabaret Show is returning to the McWilliam Park Hotel, Claremorris, for one night only, on Wednesday, July 20. Suitable for all ages, this unforgettable show featuring world class music, song, and dance proved to be a roaring success last summer. This year’s once-off show is a charity event being organised in conjunction with Western Care Association and Cáirde Crann Mór, Ballinrobe.
The summer cabaret show is produced and hosted by Annette Griffin and John Staunton. Annette is resident harpist/singer at Ashford Castle and has travelled and performed the world over. John Staunton is guitarist/singer with Daniel O' Donnell and John has travelled extensively with his music and singing.
Great care has been taken to ensure that the artists who perform at the cabaret are world class and joining Annette and John this year are Brendan Shine, accompanied by his daughter Emily, with his style of singing and accordion playing, talented country singer Gerry Guthrie, the super Ballinrobe tenor Sean Costelloe, Castlebar-based comedian Frank Forde, the Riverdance themed Turley/Duggan Academy of Irish Dance from Claremorris, and the excellent McWilliam House Band will be providing support to all the artists. Following the cabaret patrons can finish their night off with dancing in Kavanagh's Bar to the great sounds of Carmel McLoughlin.
All proceeds from this once off summer cabaret will go to support Western Care Association’s local services for people with intellectual disabilities and their families in the south Mayo area. Tickets costing €25 are available from McWilliam Park Hotel by calling (094 ) 9378000, from Western Care Association by calling (094 ) 9029136, from many local outlets throughout the county and online at www.iregister.ie/summercabaret
