Shaking Bog, Poetry Town, Culture Night & DUBLIN ALIVE!

It’s been a busy season as live readings and concerts, mostly outdoors, got up and running. It is so good to be performing again, personally-in person- live and in 3D! Not to mention going to live events and readings. The weather didn’t just hold up – it has been amazing.   There was A Gap in the Clouds at Powerscourt Japanese Gardens with Shaking Bog and Poetry Town on the 11 Sep. Thanks to all who came.   Culture Night, 17 Sep as part of Bray Poetry Town at the Bandstand. A gorgeous evening with Jane Clarke and singer songwriter Amy Barrett, various skateboarders and competing live music, oh and a full moon!   Then on Sat 18 Eavesdrop, myself and Mary Barnecutt, took to the stage as part of Dublin Alive! Dublin City Council’s local performance festival in Mount Bernard Pk, Cabra.   The following weekend, Sat 25th we popped up in St Annes’ Pk Raheny in blistering sunshine to perform in Festival in A Van which has fulfilled a long held ambition!
