Twin Headed Wolf Album Fundraiser

Saturday 30 November at 7 pm

Twin Headed Wolf Poster  ‘Twin Headed Wolf’ is an eccentric folk flavoured double act hailing from the wonderful West Clare. Described by Hotpress Magazine as “a playful, experimental, ingenious mix of old and new” their stage show is a carousel of ever changing instruments most recently including a typewriter, some bones, half of a teacup and of course a saw and an old milk jug!

Drawing their inspiration from each other’s imaginations, bonfire singsongs, circuses and scrapyards, their twin edged harmonies juxtaposed with sinister lyrics and a raw sound lend an ethereal flavour to folk music.

They have made a name for themselves in the Irish music scene supporting acts such as Ronan O Snodaigh, Duke Special, Katie Kim, Luka Bloom and Mundy and have performed live with Cian Finn and Glen Hansard. They have played a myriad of Festivals over the past two summers, venturing from Electric Picnic to the experimental shores of Norway’s Jovial Biennalen and to almost every Irish festival in between. They have been featured acts in the RDS Music Show for the Festival expo and have played in many of Irelands top music venues.

This gig is a fundraiser to help them finish working on their first album. They have planned a very special show, filled with theatrics, experiments, surprises and crowd participation!

Doors are at 7pm, and they ask that you donate whatever you can to help them finish their album.  Feel free to dress up, bring your friends, imaginary or otherwise, and enjoy the show!

40 Years Behind The Lens at RTE – Photographic exhibition and lecture – By Godfrey Graham

On the 22nd November @ 8pm

The Courthouse Gallery is marking the 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination on the 22nd November with a presentation and lecture by Godfrey Graham.

Godfrey Graham, Ryan Tubridy and John F Keane

Godfrey Grahams’ lecture promises to be a fascinating account of the life, times and memories of a cameraman. He saw first hand, the changes in Ireland and the world as well as meeting some of the most famous (and infamous) politicians, authors and entertainers.

Through his lens Graham has captured John F. Kennedy, Nelson Mandela, Princess Grace, Patrick Kavanagh, Brendan Behan, Robert Mitchum among the most noteworthy personalities of the latter half of the 20th century.

Godfrey Graham joined RTÉ Television shortly after it was launched as one of its first lighting cameramen. For the next 40 years, he worked on some of the station’s most significant programmes, and he covered the visit to Ireland of US President John F. Kennedy
