Brilliant children's theatre comes to Castlebar

Branar Theatre specialises in children's theatre for the very young where often language is not the most important tool to convey the story. Their work is precisely crafted to tell the story succinctly for the eyes and ears of young children, while introducing them to an amazing, awe-inspiring, work of live theatre. The group will be bringing their show Bláth/The Flower to the Linenhall Arts Centre next Monday, October 26. 

Album review: The Frames

image preview

MY OPINION of The Frames has always been skewered towards the negative because of their debut single, the hideously awful 'The Dancer'. The band's knack of repackaging indie and alternative rock for mainstream audiences made them appear edgy to many - but only if you ignored what was going on in indie and alternative rock. Forgive the Indie-snobbery but that did not sit well with me either.

Folk-Trad hits Castlebar next Thursday

Five-piece Galway-based folk band Vickers Vimy performs at the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar on Thursday, March 14 at 8pm. Vickers Vimy main men Ed Drea and Fintan Hanley write laid back folk tunes in the style of Paul Simon or Jack Johnson. Inspired by the transatlantic flight of the Vickers Vimy from Newfoundland to Clifden, Connemara in 1919, Ed and Fintan wrote and recorded an album. Produced by Daragh O’Toole and mixed by Ger McDonnell, it features Colm Mac Con Iomaire from The Frames and The Swell Season and a good crew of friends and featuring well-known Davitt College Music teacher and school musical producer Eamonn Mulderrig on drums. Vickers Vimy has supported such greats as John Martyn, The Hothouse Flowers, Mundy, The Guggenheim Grotto and Maria Doyle Kennedy, and released the critically acclaimed debut single, ‘Devil on Your Back’ in 2012. The long-awaited debut album That Vinyl Scratch sees light of day some time this month.
