Laughter and Music Are Just the Tonic This January
Down Arts Centre has the perfect remedy for January, with Nuala McKeever and The Rapparres sharing their own brand of humour and music.
On Friday 25 January at 8pm, Nuala McKeever transforms the awful into the awfully funny in her new show, ‘Letting Go or Losing It’, with her trademark wit.
The show looks at the trials and tribulations facing women of a certain age, including a hilarious take on weight gain, menopause, bereavement and becoming invisible. Throw in a disappearing libido, Donald Trump and comfy shoes, and the picture gets even more depressing. But Nuala is equal to the task – facing the inevitable slide with laughter. See the funny side of life in this entertaining show; tickets are selling fast!
Traditional music will be on show on Saturday 26 January at 8pm when The Rapparees perfrom at the Centre where the group will launch their fourth album, ‘Recharged’. Hailing from Belfast, this is one of the most engaging bands to burst onto the Irish music scene in recent years. The line-up includes Joe McKeague, one of Ireland’s finest ballad singers, complimented by the vocals of his cousin Gerard McNeill. Kevin Mawdsley’s fiddle and guitar and banjo player Conor McCaffrey, as well as four time All-Ireland bodhrán champion and accordion, Steven Flanagan complete the line-up of this exciting folk band.
