The Acoustic Yard, a monthly showcase event featuring singer/songwriters from around the world, will hold its next original collection of songs on Tuesday, March 25, in Matt Molloy's, Westport.
The IMRO supported event launched last month and the inaugural session was filmed by Irishtv.ie
This month, The Acoustic Yard presents three exciting, contemporary songwriters in the form of Kate O’Callaghan from Donegal, Jim McKee, a Tyrone native based in the Burren, and Mayo resident Paul Kirwan.
Kate O'Callaghan’s recent CD The Still Beyond combines evocative melodies with intelligent, considered lyrics. She has a very distinctive writing style that compliments her beautiful vocal delivery.
She has sung at numerous festivals including the Galway Arts Festival and Glastonbury in the UK.
Jim McKee’s new CD Goodness Comes from the Heart is full of catchy tunes and emotive lyrics. Some of his songs appear in the award winning film Songs for Amy, which will be globally released this year. Jim is also an actor and a professional artist with his paintings displayed extensively in Ireland and France.
Paul Kirwan is known around Ireland as front man with his Mayo based Paul K Band. He has a smooth and atmospheric vocal and virtuoso fast piano blues playing skills. Paul has shared the stage with Duke Special, Arlo Guthrie, Deacon Blue and Imelda May and he recently appeared on BalconyTV.
Doors open at 8.30 pm and any singer/songwriters wishing to be considered for The Acoustic Yard or looking for more information can contact David Dee at [email protected]
