Songs of Joyce

Songs of Joyce - performance at the Promenade Cafe

Sinead Murphy and Darina Gallagher (The Shannon Colleens) are just back from performing their sell-out shows in Boston, New York and Moscow to entertain you with a musical evocation of an era, in a show acclaimed by critics and academics alike.

Songs of Joyce brings Sinead and Darina’s own particular earthy brand of harmonies to some of Joyce’s best-loved and popular songs – from bawdy street ballads, to cheeky “Seaside Girls”, nostalgic “Love’s Old Sweet Song”; the pertinent “The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo” and the beauty of Michal Balfe’s “I Dreamt That I Dwelt in Marble Halls”

FRIDAY 25th and SATURDAY 26th MAY at 7PM

STARTER, MAIN COURSE, and TICKET for SHOW : €35.00 and €37.50
bookings €10.00 per person. deposit required.
