We will continue to do Sunday open mic in Annascaul. Thanks to all that attended the open music event we had last Sunday at the café. These included Michael Dorgan, Michelle Flannery, Paul Kennedy, Aisling and Mairead Duffy, PJ Callaghan, Clare and John from The Dingle Ukulele Band and we had two lovely German people that joined in also on the day.
Their music was “awesome”. and so heartfelt.
The café is open every Sunday if you wish to practice and enjoy the company of other musicians,dancers or story telling renditions. Special thanks to Pat Duffy for this lovely video he made .
Aidan at Annascaul Café can be contacted at 086 8035464 to book a free place. This is open to all, young and old with complimentary treats for musicians, dancers and singers who play.
The idea of these sunday open mic in Annascaul is to make them accessible to all. Yiu will enjoy these sessions if you have an interest in music. We are not referring to just the moderate type musicians but also those that are nervous of their abilities. Please come if you are willing to” give it a go “. In fact we totally admire those that are willing to stand in front of others and perform to the best of their abilities. We are calling on anyone who is a poet, musician, recanteur, comedian, fiddle player, or likes guitar etc
Many people attend these sessions where audience members may perform on stage whether they are amateurs or professionals, often for the first time or to promote an upcoming performance. Performers may use a microphone but in most cases the acoustics are very good where we dont usually use amplification
In relation to these sunday open mic in Annascaul We dont usually ask performers to sign up in advance but it would be great if they can get in contact in advance and indicate whey they wish to play and do. The cafe will provide free food an refreshments but we encourage you to bring your friends and family fo us to cover costs on the day.
Ross is one person that play at the cafe on Sundays but we welcome everyone who wishes to get involved. Session start at 2pm each sunday from February 2022. Riona O Madgain played here for Tapas night in 2022.
