Inaugural Adelaide Góilín Session ~ 14 June 2014

gg2Our very first Góilín session was held on 14 June 2014 and was a raging success….so good we are already planning another one so keep on the lookout for information and updates!

Over 50 people attended and we had 35 different contributions of song and verse ranging from haunting Irish ballads, verse ‘as gaeilge’,  funny songs and verses, personal poetry, Bush verse and a touch of jazz.

As ‘bean on tí’ (woman of the house)I had the traditional muinteorí (teacher’s)bell but there was no ‘reining them in’, everyone embraced the spirit and listened respectfully.  One patron said ‘it is a very civilised evening’ of great entertainment.  It is a great formula and it worked beautifully.

My thanks to Geraldine O’Reilly for organising the night, and to all who generously contributed songs or verse on the night, we had 35 different contributions from 21 people and the listeners were treated to a great night.  There was so much variety and some wonderful surprises.  It finished with us wanting to know the date of the next one!

Now is the time to start learning that song or verse you love so you can add to the next Góilín Session, and the best news is that you can have the words beside you for back up, as all contributions are from your table.

The Heartstring Quartet ~ Friday 30 May 2014

What a wonderful night of music and entertainment by Siobhan Owen, then the Heartstring Quartet.

The combination of Chris Newman on Guitar/Mandolin, Màire Nì Chathasaigh on Irish Harp, Nollaig Casey on Fiddle/Vocals and Arty McGlynn on Guitar worked so well collectively and individually.  So many styles and influences came together to take the audience on a sonically beautiful journey through time.

Thank you to ShowPro Touring for bringing this tour to Adelaide and to Siobhan Owen for supporting.

Please visit our Facebook Page to see the fantastic photos from the night.
