The 17th edition of Culture Night (Oíche Chultúir) will take place on Friday, 23rd September 2022. This special night is brought to you by the Arts Council as a national snapshot in time that celebrates culture, creativity and the arts. It also seeks to promote the belief that our rich and varied culture is alive, treasured and nurtured in people’s lives, today and every day. It is delivered nationwide in cities, towns, villages and rural locations. As part of this celebration, we are proud to present ‘Eágsúla,’ a live show of music and song brought to you by some of our local performing artists that showcases aspects of our culture.
The name of the show, ‘Eágsúla,’ is an Irish word loosely interpreted to mean ‘diverse,’ ‘different,’ or ‘varied,’ and it was chosen as a testament to the diversity of cultures that exist within our own locality, and to acknowledge the contribution that each one makes to our community. The musical journey that these artists have planned will remind us that although we may come from different traditions, music speaks to us all and can give expression to the common feelings and experiences we share.
The concert will feature tin whistle, keyboard, mandolin, guitar and vocals and include Irish traditional music, folk, American country, and maybe even a few surprises! Everyone is invited to attend. Admission is FREE, but booking is essential to reserve your seat as places are limited.
Please join us for this very special evening that takes place during the Celtic festival of ‘Mabon’ to mark the Autumn Equinox.
