A note from the Artistic Director
Nollaig Shona daoibh a cháirde go leir – Seasons Greetings to you from all of us at Triskel.
We’ve got some amazing music and cinema for you this month, right through the holiday season, and into the New Year.
Josh Ritter makes a return visit to us, this time in trio format, for an unforgettable night of acoustic music, followed by our annual performance of Handel’s Messiah presented by the Irish Baroque Orchestra, with the choir Resurgam; the sublime Oratorio, as it was originally conceived, is this year directed by the award winning John Butt.
We have an amazing mid-December weekend of “indie” music too: beginning on Friday 13th with HALVES who will headline a very special evening of contemporary Irish and Irish based music. Special guests on the night are Come On Live Long and relative newcomer Liza Flume.
On Saturday 14th the acclaimed Julie Feeney returns to us to perform, following her sell-out shows in the US.
Then on Sunday 15th an extraordinary night of, well, a blend of circus, street performance and incredible music in the unique style of Jerry Fish and his incredible Electric Sideshow.
We continue with two special concerts around the Solstice;l first time visit to Christchurch for the amazing Mary Coughlan and an atmospheric night of entertainment with Vladimir’s Viennese Christmas.
We’re providing plenty of cinema for children and adults for the holiday season too, ahead of our intensive programme of film screenings and activities in the New Year.
We re-open this year on the 28th December and to help get you out of the house after the celebrations, we present Declan Sinnott and then, in their first appearance at Triskel The Celtic Tenors.
We’d like to say thank you for your support during 2013, and we hope you’ll continue to support us in the New Year.
