Due to the recent tragic events in our town on Friday 25th August, our original plans of a large scale dance event at the Civic plaza have been changed. We are relocating some of the planned events to Hearn’s Hotel’s ballroom to present you with a multi-faceted and multi-cultural programme featuring musicians, storytellers and performers from this Isle and beyond. Over the course of the evening, they will share their talents and passion, and remind us all of the importance and healing power of the arts in bringing us together, reach out across difference and celebrate being in the present moment as a community.

This event is free, but ticketed. Please follow the Eventbrite link above to book your free tickets.

7.30pm: Storytelling with Orla McGovern

Órla Mc Govern is an award-winning Storyteller, performer and writer based in The West of Ireland. She will share a story from her repertoire of Irish mythology, accompanied by singer, writer, improviser and storyteller Niceol Blue.

8.15pm: Fresh Air Collective

Jazz/Klezmer Band Comprising of Edel Sullivan (violin), Ruti Lachs (piano accordeon) and Eileen Healy (guitar), the Fresh Air Collective will open the evening’s musical proceedings with a selection of waltzes, tangos, klezmer and gypsy jazz music that will surely make you want to dance and hop about!

Baile An Salsa is a Celtic Salsa band that brings together an international mix of world-class musicians to deliver a distinctive blend of Latin rhythms and traditional Irish Music – a fusion which they call “Salsa-Trad.” The musicians seamlessly blend their influences from Latin America, Europe and the United States to create a contemporary twist of traditional tunes with original compositions. Vocals in English, Spanish and Irish, provided by the band’s founder, Andres Martorell, meld with the group’s vibrant combination of instruments, creating a full, rich sound that is fun and danceable. Make sure to bring your dancing shoes
