UPCOMING SHOWS:



FRIDAY 16th FEBRUARY 2018 - MARTIN & ELIZA CARTHY

DOORS OPEN 7.15PM - SHOW STARTS 8.15PM




The good Doctor Martin Carthy and his twice Mercury nominated daughter Eliza Carthy, join forces to perform songs from their first duo album ever, a new CD of traditional material entitled "THE ELEPHANT", released in May 2014 on Topic Records.

Martin is a legendary ballad singer and guitarist who has influenced a generations of artists, including Bob Dylan and Paul Simon, while Eliza has been twice-nominated for the Mercury Music Prize and a multiple-award winner at the BBC Radio Two Folk awards.

For more than 50 years Martin Carthy has been one of folk music's greatest innovators, one of its best loved, most enthusiastic and, at times, most quietly controversial of figures. His skill, stage presence and natural charm have won him many admirers, not only from within the folk scene, but also far beyond it. Trailblazing musical partnerships with, amongst others, Steeleye Span, Dave Swarbrick and his award-winning wife (Norma Waterson) and daughter Eliza Carthy have resulted in more than 40 albums, but Martin has only recorded 10 solo albums, of which the much anticipated Waiting for Angels (Topic TSCD527) was the latest. Whether in the folk clubs (which he continues to champion), on the concert stage or making TV appearances (he was the subject of the acclaimed "Originals" music documentary strand on BBC 2) – there are few roles that Martin Carthy hasn't played.

He's a ballad singer, a ground-breaking acoustic and electric-guitarist and an authoritative interpreter of newly composed material. He always prefers to follow an insatiable musical curiosity rather than cash in on his unrivalled position. Perhaps, most significant of all, are his settings of traditional songs with guitar, which have influenced a generation of artists, including Bob Dylan and Paul Simon, on both sides of the Atlantic.

"Arguably the greatest English folk song performer, writer, collector and editor of them all" - Q Magazine

Eliza Carthy is undoubtedly one of the most impressive and engaging performers of her generation. Twice nominated for the Mercury Prize and winner of innumerable other accolades over a 20 year career, Eliza has performed and recorded with a diverse array of artists including, Paul Weller, Rufus and Martha Wainwright, Patrick Wolf and Bob Neuwirth. More than most, Eliza Carthy has revitalised folk music and captured the most hardened of dissenters with intelligent, charismatic and boundary-crossing performance.

Eliza grew up immersed in the world of traditional music. She still divides her time between touring and recording with her legendary parents, Martin Carthy and Norma Waterson as well as engaging in numerous pioneering solo and band projects, including work with Pere Ubu and Melanie Challenger, an artist in residence in Antarctica. In what has become something of a parallel career, Eliza has co-presented the BBC Radio 3 World Music Awards, been a regular guest-presenter on the BBC Radio 2 Mark Radcliffe Show and has made many appearances on BBC TVs "Later with Jools". In her own right, Eliza has been the subject of an hour long ITV documentary ("Heaven & Earth") and "My Music" on Channel 5. Comedian and writer Stewart Lee describes Eliza as "Not the Messiah, but a very naughty girl".

FRIDAY 23rd MARCH 2018 - DOMINIC KIRWAN (PLUS SUPPORT ACT)

DOORS OPEN 7.15PM - SHOW STARTS 8.15PM




2014 marked a massive milestone in the career of Omagh singer Dominic Kirwan, 25 years since the talented entertainer signed a record deal with Ritz records and gave to the public his debut album "Try a Little Kindness". 25 years plus now and the story continues Dominic remaining one of the most popular singers touring, performing and recording with a fan base of all ages throughout the world who enjoy his wonderful stage presence and performances. He took to the stage of Omagh Town Hall to dance in a Feis at six years of age and that has been his home basically ever since. From playing the pubs and clubs of his homeland to the cream of the UK’s concert Halls and Theatres its been a stunning rise, a magical journey indeed through the ranks of this business we call "show" for Dominic.

Impossible to pigeon hole since he broke on to the circuit as a professional singer, Dominic from the County of Tyrone where some of Ireland's greatest names in music have come from, has been entertaining professionally since 1989. Audiences big and small of all ages have enjoyed the genial talent that is Mr Kirwan, from the Shetlands to Lands' End, from Malin to Mizzen with the USA, Australia, New Zealand and a fair bit of everywhere else in between thrown in for good measure. Dominic has been a constant on the stages of dance halls, clubs and theatres with a brand of show that has ebbed and flowed but never let the loyal fans that have followed the former car parts salesman, down. Dominic has been described as the ultimate entertainer, at ease with songs such as "Like Father Like Son" to "Noreen Bawn" from "Absent Friends" to "Some Girls". The show is an eclectic mix of songs that just sit begging to be sung in Kirwan's own style.
