Martin Carthy and Dave Swarbrick 6th Sept

`Arguably the greatest English folk song performers, writers, collectors and editors of them all’ Q Magazine

 

For more than 40 years Martin Carthy has been one of folk music’s greatest innovators, one of its best loved, most enthusiastic and, at times, most quietly controversial of figures. His skill, stage presence and natural charm have won him many admirers, not only from within the folk scene, but also far beyond it.  Trailblazing musical partnerships with, amongst others, Steeleye Span, Dave Swarbrick and his award-winning wife (Norma Waterson) and daughter Eliza Carthy have resulted in more than 40 albums, but Martin has only recorded 10 solo albums, of which the much anticipated Waiting for Angels (Topic TSCD527) is the latest.
Dave Swarbrick was born in London in April 1941 and moved to Yorkshire when only three months old. At the age of six he learnt the rudiments of the fiddle from the local fiddler, Mr. Bootham. When he was eight years old the family moved to Birmingham. Dave left school there and at the age of fifteen became apprenticed to I.C.I. as a letterpress printer.During his indentured years Dave toured and recorded extensively. Amongst the huge back catalogue from that time are three Radio Ballads with EWAN MacCOLL, PEGGY SEEGER and CHARLES PARKER. Dave’s lifelong passion for folk music was born in those busy years. His printing apprenticeship was mainly spent “on the road” or in the Manager’s office.  We’very excited to welcome back the greatest folk duo of all time.

Tommy Fleming 12th Sept

TOMMY FLEMING

We are so lucky and excited to have such a distiguished artist as Tommy Fleming coming to the Irish Centre this Autumn.

Tommy Fleming has many times been described as the “Voice of Ireland” and is one of Ireland’s top entertainers.

Tommy, who was born in Aclare Co. Sligo, Ireland in 1971 and was the youngest of six children, started singing while still at school. While fronting his own local band, a chance encounter with Phil Coulter at a charity function near his home lead to a big break onto the world stage where Tommy appeared as a guest singer on Phil’s USA tour. This then lead to the singer entering into the music business as a solo artist.

Shortly after securing a record deal everything looked set to flourish when a tragic car accident left the singer with a broken neck leaving his music career on-hold indefinitely. After many months of convalescence, Tommy returned to the stage having had to start over and is now regarded as one of the finest singers worldwide and is currently enjoying a hugely successful career spanning the last 18 years.

 Tommy turns each song into his own with his own unique and powerful style touching emotions in you that only music can reach.

A Tommy Fleming concert is a musical experience not to be missed with one song more haunting than the other. He has a universal appeal to all ages and backgrounds with a fan base that is growing stronger worldwide year by year.

BERNADETTE: Notes On A Political Journey (2011)Bernadette Devlan

90 minutes

This documentary by director Lelia Doolin, made over a nine year period, charts thestory of Bernadette Devlin McAliskey’s (born 1947) political journey in Northern Irelandsince her explosive entry into the public arena in the late sixties. She intermixed socialism, Irish republicanism, anti-clericalism and feminism with general political impracticality and radical brashness. Today she co-ordinates a publicly funded cross-community grassroots organisation in her home in County Tyrone. Star and Shadow Cinema, Sunday 19th Oct, 7.30pm £6 Concessions £4.

www.starandshadow.org.uk/

ADAM & PAUL (2004)Adam and Paul

83 minutes

The film by director Lenny Abrahamson is a stylised, downbeat comedy, following Adam & Paul through a single day around Dublin, which, like every other, is devoted to scrounging and robbing money to buy heroin. It is not a film without hope; it is a tender, unsentimental and very funny testament to the persistence of the human spirit in even the most damaged and marginalised of people. Star and Shadow Cinema, Wednesday 22nd, Oct, 7.30pm £6 Concessions £4.

Tyneside Irish Festival – BEOGA 17th Oct

BEOGA

Cultural logo

Presents

Its a welcome return to one of Tynesides best loved Irish trad bands the lively and ever exciting  Beoga. Who’s sound lies firmly within the Irish tradition, however, they are not afraid to incorporate other genres’ nuances into their music. From bluesy riffs to Astor Piazzola-style jazz, to a raunchy New Orleans jamboree vibe, their music always returns to a wonderfully bouncy Irish sound. The result is traditional, with a huge sense of fun and adventure and it all works – wonderfully well. A great band to have for this years 28th Tyneside Irish Festival!

Presents

Sean started his career playing accordion in the family ceili band in his native County Derry. Success came quickly when he started singing and recording. The public loved his easy-going country and Irish medleys so much that his cassettes became the official top sellers on UK market stalls!

Twenty years ago he teamed up with Tony McIlvanna, a stalwart of several leading showbands. Together they have gone from strength to strength and their recordings have led to regular tours of Australia and the USA. It’s great to welcome them back to meet their many fans in the North East.
