These Sessions aim to encourage the participants to learn a repertoire of new tunes while playing with other musicians at slow to moderate tempos. All welcome. Hosted by Paudie O'Connor, a Button Accordion player well grounded in his local Sliabh Luachra tradition as well as being a nationally recognised performer. A list of tunes which are regularly played at the Slow Session is available to download from our website here.

Monday 25th June - Photographic Exhibition by Simon Prunty ~ Exhibition

Photography Exhibition By Simon Prunty 300w

Simon Prunty is an artist from Dublin. He is a graduate of NCAD (The National College of Art and Design) with a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art Media. Simon’s photographic work focuses on a passionate revival of traditional analogue photographic practices and his most recent ongoing body of work is based entirely in traditional black and white 35mm and Medium Format analogue photography; entitled, “Looking for Peace”. Each image is hand-printed by the artist in the darkroom on archival silver gelatin paper. The work explores a quiet, minimalist and mysterious aesthetic, assuming no concrete answers about the world it depicts, but rather displays scenes with an almost agnostic nature; gathering questions and celebrating the unknowable. Simon has also taught traditional darkroom skills to students at DUPA (Dublin University Photography Association) in Trinity College, Dublin. This exhibition will be displayed in our Easter Snow Gallery throughout June and July from 10am to 4:30pm daily. Admission is free. All welcome.

Maudie 300w

Maud Dowley, (Sally Hawkins) is a bright-eyed and determined young woman who, despite suffering from juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, is desperate to live independently from her over-protective family and gain the freedom to paint the colourful art she passionately creates. On applying to become a housekeeper for reclusive fish peddler Everett (Ethan Hawke), the two social misfits form a bond that soon leads to marriage. As Maudie’s creative output increases, a chance encounter with a visiting New Yorker eventually leads to wider recognition of her talent.

FreddieWhiteSmall 300w

Freddie White has long been synonymous with music of the highest quality. He has been part of the fabric of the live music scene in Ireland since the 1970’s and his albums continue to sell well, amongst his loyal and newfound fan base. Born in Cobh, Co. Cork into a musical family, by age 17 he was playing professionally. At 19, he moved to London, were he busked in subways, and developed his unique voice and guitar style. His earliest recordings, which were re-mastered and re-released in 2004, are still hugely popular among his loyal fan base.

  • “The sparse and haunting ‘Live on Tour’ is still among the greatest Irish albums of all time.
    ‘Do You Do’ swings and struts just as profoundly. Imagine those two cuts of vinyl made decade ago, they still stand as perfection” - Irish Times

    Entitled “PRODIGAL SONGS”, Freddie’s latest album is a collection of songs about the power of love, the power of music, an observation on the history of Ireland over the last 100 years… and one song about a certain dog, and with a healthy inclusion of some rare covers.

    Freddie moved to Sydney, Australia in March 2011 but continued to tour Ireland and the UK regularly. Since then he resided in New York City for some time and has now returned to Ireland. He is currently putting the finishing touches to his new album ‘One Heart Beating’ for a spring release. He will be touring in June and July 2018 where new songs will feature along with Freddie’s classics from his 40-year career as a principal in the orchestra of Irish folk and rock music.
