The Shoestring Collective


A friend of mine is involved in this fascinating sounding event on Saturday, January 19th, 2008

James Joyce Centre
35 North Great George's Street
Dublin 1

Guests on the night include:

LOUIS STEWART
Louis is Ireland's greatest living jazz guitarist and has played with jazz legends such as Benny Goodman and Dizzie Gillespie. What more need we say! Seriously…

CHIARA BROWNE
Originally from Australia, Chiara has lived and performed in Ireland for a number of years, and she released her critically acclaimed album Night Time in 2006. On January 19th, Chiara will be joined by a very special guest – the award-winning actress, playwright and sister – Sara Browne! Sara is a Sydney-based performer and a founding member of acoustic duo The Ladycakes.

COMEDY FROM MELISSA NOLAN & MELANIE PHILIPS
Melissa and Melanie will be performing material from their comedy show A TOUCH OF KLASS. The show is based on two outlandish Dublin beauty therapists, and has been recently made into a pilot for television and picked up by Midas Production Company. "A TOUCH OF KLASS - If you can't spell it, you haven't got it!"

POETRY FROM COLM KEEGAN
Colm is a poet and short story writer, and he has been short-listed on two separate occasions for the prestigious Sunday Tribune / Hennessy Award.

CIARAN MacAODGHAN (Fiddle)
Ciaran is an award-winning traditional Irish fiddle player. He has toured extensively and is sure to be one of the highlights of January's club.

the iciclethieves
Built around the song writing partnership of Sandra Adams and Colm Cunningham, the iciclethieves will perform new compositions, some relics, and a borrowed gem or two.

LOOKING FOR THE HEART OF SATURDAY NIGHT
A short comic piece written by Stephen Kennedy and performed by Seamus Brennan.

And, as if all that was not enough, we will also throw in an award-winning short film for good measure. You can't say fairer than that!
