The stunning Malt House in Stradbally will be the setting for a new concert ‘Summer Notes’ on Saturday, July 2.
Among the performers is the hugely talented Laois woman, Emer Dunne, who is taking time out from her Hourglass tour to perform in Stradbally.
Also on stage will be Georgina Ireland, Vivienne Graham and Mary Wisley performing music, song and stories from their show “Conversations “
Sarah Troy is a very talented young Laois singer and pianist. A music graduate from NUI Maynooth she is an accomplished piano and vocal tutor and children’s choir conductor.
She is currently making a name for herself on the local music scene and will on the night be performing solo….as well as with her two brothers William on guitar and and Jamie on Bodhrán…debuting as Underscore.
Buīocht are a relatively new and very popular five piece Trad band who are reinventing and rejuvenating Trad music for a more contemporary audience.
They are lively, energetic and engaging – and they promise also to have a couple of excellent Irish dancers with them.
Admission is €20, (€21.50 online) and includes a complementary glass of Prosecco on arrival.
Tickets can be bought online or from the Dunamaise Box Office, Simpsons or from the School Office.
Refreshments will also be available for purchase during the course of the evening.
The St Colman’s annual Electric Picnic Tickets draw will take place on the night, with one pair of Weekend EP tickets and one pair of Weekend Forest Fest tickets up for grabs for the lucky winners.
It is hoped by the Malt House organising committee that Summer Notes will be an Annual event.
This year all funds raised are going to St Colman’s NS in Stradbally.
