The one and only Pat Shortt brings his hilarious new show I Am the Band to the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar on Saturday, March 23 at 8pm.
Pat Shortt’s new one-man comedy show charts the life of solo lounge musician Dixie Walsh. The show is a tribute night where Dixie’s peers and friends (the audience ) come to celebrate his career, as Dixie reminisces about the path his career has taken and the struggles he has had to endure to get to the top of his game. Pat Shortt is one of Ireland’s best-loved comedians. As Dixie Walsh, he has had one of the biggest selling number one singles with “The Jumbo Breakfast Roll”. A much-loved character in two of Pat’s sell-out shows, Dixie now takes centre stage to tell his life story and shares his unique style of music with you. Pat Shortt’s quirky interpretation of rural Irish characters brings to life Dixie’s mother, his teacher and other locals who queue up to recall their daft memories of Dixie and his music. I Am The Band is a hilarious look at life on the back roads between Ireland’s dance halls, and a tribute to one of this country’s true music legends - Dixie Walsh.
