BIG WARM ACOUSTIC TUESDAY!
Donate an instrument or pay just €5 for a superb gig to help kids in need get musical instruments to learn on.
...The Grand Social,
Lower Liffey St (at Halpenny Bridge)
8pm (first act starts early, last act finishes in time for buses home)
***IF YOU HAVE AN UNUSED INSTRUMENT PLEASE DONATE IT! MESSAGE HERE. BRING IT ON THE NIGHT. OR DROP IT INTO THE GRAND SOCIAL ANYTIME***
The artists appearing will be:
Amazing multi-instrumental singer songwriter who has played the world over and is a regular onstage alongside Lisa Hannigan & Cathy Davey. His songwriting is always deeply soulful and he’s renowned for giving his live performances everything he’s got.
Toby Reiser Quartet
No instruments, just 4 voices a capella performing southern US gospel songs that sound like they’re coming straight out of a wind-up record player. Impossible not to love.
4 French guys playing Gypsy swing. A crackingly good live act. You won’t resist dancing to their version of Inspector Gadget.
Dublin singer/songwriter with a rich repertoire of playful, poetic songs. “...good times acoustic blast...” Evening Herald
Top drawer troubadour with a hugely diverse background from cabaret to being a member of The Pale. Always a very powerful live performer.
01 Soul loving life by Brian Brody
All money is going to help a city centre music school run by Saint Vincent De Paul & volunteers. The music teaching program has been a huge hit with the kids but they need more instruments badly. So how about you spend a fiver, have a night of wonderful live music, all while helping a very worthy local cause right on your doorstep. It’s music fans & musicians helping people directly through music.
