Newsletter September 2006
In our 36th year and stronger than ever
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.
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.
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.
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"?
can we do to follow this?
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.
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.
look forward to hearing from you and seeing you soon.
