KAM rows in this year on Culture Night--celebrated accross the country featuring free arts events--with a Blckboard Venue, an open mic event for all ages, styles, genres, and types of performance. The event is free and open to the public for performers and audience alike. Musicians, singers, dancers, poets, and thespians are all welcome. Watch this space for more information coming soon.
Two-time Meteor award winner, John Spillane has confirmed with KAM for a GiG Room performance Sat, Nov. 28. John is one of the most accomplished songwriters in Ireland today. Among those who have covered his songs are Christy Moore, Karan Casey, Pauline Scanlon, Cathy Ryan, Sharon Shannon, Sean Keane, George Murphy, to name a few. He performs to audiences large and small everywhere.
John’s performances shimmer with the magic realism that permeates many of his songs as he effortlessly flits between beautiful poetry tinged with melancholy to roguish, irreverent Cork humour. If you are looking for a night of good ‘craic’, a John Spillane show should not be missed.
In 2005, four musicians got together for an informal session in one of Sligo’s most unique pubs, Shoot the Crows. Soon the Wednesday night session was one of the most famed in the area, with musical styles from Irish traditional to Latin bossa, and a lot more in between. Encouraged by the weekly rapturous response, the four musicians, harking from different musical and cultural backgrounds, agreed to join forces and take their unique styles to the next level.
Thus, NoCrows were born.Read more: No Crows feat
