In our 36th year and stronger than ever

Hi Folks,


The new season at The Woodman opened with a bang with an inspired performance from Kieran Halpin. Kieran never fails to delight and this year was no different. Hard on the heel of Kieran were The Edwards Brothers and Dave Sealey. Dave is fondly remembered for his days with brother Al in Cosmotheka and last Friday demonstrated that the humour and timing is still as sharp as ever.


This Friday, 29th September we welcome back Anthony John Clarke, no doubt accompanied by the delightful Elizabeth Van De Waal. Anthony John has, quite rightly, established himself as a firm Woodman favourite who never fails to enthral. An evening spent in the company of Anthony John Clarke is an evening that is guaranteed to be hugely entertaining.


The following week, 6th October, we have a change to the diary. It will not be, as advertised, Joe ODonnal but it will be Donal OConnor.  Donal grew up in provincial Ireland of the seventies, he writes about the people and places he knows and loves, he writes about issues, which are colloquial and yet universal, he writes about ordinary everyday life in an extraordinarily simple way. Is it any wonder that the great Christy Moore described his debut album as "A Pure Joy"?


What can we do to follow this?

We are always trying to think of new guests and ideas for your club; however, at the end of the day it is your club and it needs your support to survive. So what do you want? Are there ways that we can improve the club for the benefit of all? Are there any artists that you would particularly like to see at The Woodman?  Let us know, we would welcome your feedback.


Please direct your comments direct to me. I cant promise that we will fulfil all requests (we cant afford the Oysterband any more!) but we will undertake to reply to all comments received.


We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you soon.


Best Regards,
