For our last Irish gig this year (apart from 33 children's show in the Ark!) we are heading to the legendary Leo's Tavern in Meenaleck, West Donegal, which is the home of world renowned acts Enya and Clannad. We have been asked to headline at the well established 'Clubeo' on Friday October 16th. Clubeo is a regular night for emerging and enthusiastic singers, songwriters, musicians and bands to perform and showcase their music in an encouraging, vibrant and entertaining environment followed by a 45 minute concert by a special guest, which in this case is us!
Clubeo was aunched by Clannad's Moya Brennan and is supported by notable local musicians and performers including Donall MacRuiari and Ian Smith and was born from a passion to give a stage to performers who might not otherwise have one.
Their mission is to encourage a variety of songwriting so the stage is open to all to showcase their talents. There is also a special emphasis on Irish language singing and writing. Gaelic language and tradition is an integral part of the modern local culture and Moya and co hope that this will become evident in performances.
We're so proud to delighted to have been asked to play at this event and we hope some of you can make it along for the craic!
