On Thursday, October 6, Ballina Arts Centre will present: An Evening with Mike Absalom. The Swinford-based painter, poet, raconteur, multi-instrumentalist, multi-linguist, potter, printmaker, songwriter – the list goes on – has done it all. Forty-odd years ago, he performed at the Royal Albert Hall. Monty Python’s Flying Circus hired him to distract a studio audience during scene changes. This brought songwriting success and the Old Grey Whistle Test and endless tours. And then he flew away and like a bee in a flower garden touched down in so many honeyed spots that there is no space here to list them. From Tierra del Fuego to the Yukon, from Iran to Paraguay and even for the World Harp Congress he sang and wrote and told stories and played his harp or his guitar. Now he’s coming to tell them here at home.
