Meet The 12 DisciplesMay 18, 2019
Fab Five Freddy told me everybody’s fly, DJ spinning, I said, “My, my…”
Another week, another fine line-up of grooviness for you lazy-ass feck Greystonian who won’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. To quote the great Lady Joni of Mitchell.
As always, there are three diddley-aye fixes available each week – Tuesday’s open session in Dann’s, Brian Farrell and co gathering around the Horse fire on Wednesdays, and Ger Doyle caught in fiddle-driven time warp every Thursday in Dann’s. Forever. And ever.
When the Thursday night kicks in, Christy Dignam and Joe Jewell will be kicking off for their second sell-out show at The Whale – with the bould Dylan E. Crampton in support!
To make sure your Friday night is a-hoppin’, Brian Meakin will be rockin’ the bejiggers out ofDann’s, whilst the mighty mischievous Lua McIllraith brings back her hilarious one-woman show Growing Old (Dis)Gracefully to The Whale tonight. Boom!
Making sure that your joints are rockin’ on a Saturday night, The Beach House Brothers are playing all de hits at The Beach House, whilst over in sunny Kilcoole, Wing Man will be rockin’ the shit out of Lee’s.
On Sunday afternoon, you can choose between Pat’s Fireside Sessions at The Hot Spot at 4.30pm (free, but, hey, donations, baby!), whilst a half-hour before, the Greystones Orchestra latest concert, Summer Lovin’: From LA To Broadway gets underway, under the leadership of Hazel Fortune and conductor Jonathan Browner, and featuring soloist Emer Foley. The concert is at 4pm in the South Beach Pavillion, tickets available here.
A little later in the day, there’s a 30-year celebration for dance teacher Barbara Donnelly, with Dance Magic the perfect way to say thank you for the moves. Happening at The Whale at 5pm.
As always, don’t forget to check out The Whale (including Greystones Film Club goodies and those live satellite link-ups), Pluck’s, and The Hot Spot for all the groovy gigs happening over the coming weeks – plus, of, course, perhaps the finest bar on the planet, The Harbour Bar, which is always free, always groovy, and always should have been built in Greystones.
