The Dock - Luka Bloom(19th/Oct - 19th/Oct)

MyCarrick Event - The Dock - The Dock - Luka Bloom Tickets €20 / €18
With a poet's heart and a rockster's soul, Luka Bloom is regarded as one of Ireland's most respected contemporary folk artists, having produced over 20 albums since the 1970s, Bloom continues to push the boundaries of what his music can do. A master interpreter, Bloom has continued to balance original songs with reinventions of tunes by a diverse range of songwriters. Like many who write songs, Luka's orchestra of choice is the guitar. What makes his career a little different is his constant search for a new voice within the guitar. The guitar is the landscape on which the song is created, and he is forever probing that landscape for new inspiration. No effects, no gadgets. Time, effort and a whole lot of love bring forth new voicings within the instrument, and bit by bit, the songs come to life. And eventually they fly, bringing Luka with them to be heard in Byron Bay, San Francisco, Hamburg, or even Doolin. Almost 40 years since recording his first album, Luka Bloom comes to The Dock Theatre on October 19th with his latest album 'Frugalisto'. More info and Ticket Booking here....

Me, Sara
by Dylan Coburn Gray Directed by Amy Conroy
"'If a cow fell over you'd all go and look at it' he says"
Sara Tansey's father is just back from overseas and is being very annoying! Just because he's bought her oranges doesn't mean he can say nothing happens in their town. He wasn't there when the murderer came. But was he really a murderer? Or a Playboy? Or both? And does the Playboy see just how clever and nice Sara is?
Passionate, lyrical and angry Sara invites us into a world where people are made by the stories they tell and parents need to be told who their children really are. Based on Synge's The Playboy of the Western World this is the the third of our Priming the Canon series. Priming the Canon brings standalone plays based on the classics directly into schools. With pre and post show workshops and online curriculum based materials Me, Sara brings a timeless Irish classic into the heart of the classroom.
