“One man, one guitar and a voice sent express mail from Heaven”… Time Out Magazine

Long hailed as one of Ireland’s leading songwriters and performers, Kieran Goss’s music has won him fans across the globe. But if his songs have made him a star, his live shows have made him a legend. Live on stage is where Kieran Goss really shines.

“I’ve toured with Kieran and watched him perform many times. I’ve seen him win the hearts of everyone in the room, not just with his great songs and instinctive musicality, but with his warmth and humour. It’s the performance of an artist at the top of his game, delivered with intelligence and integrity… Kieran Goss is one of Ireland’s national treasures.” Rodney Crowell

Colin Dunne, Tola Custy, Maeve Gilchrist and David Power (Ireland/Scotland) Thursday 24th August 8pm

(opening night of the Charlie Chaplin Comedy Film Festival)

Tech Amergin in collaboration with Music Network are delighted to present the prodigiously talented dancer Colin Dunne, fiddler Tola Custy, harpist Maeve Gilchrist and uilleann piper David Power. This newly-commissioned work, is a sparkling kaleidoscope of melody and rhythm inspired by the natural sounds and shimmering patterns of light that announce Ireland’s day.

‘Edges of Light’ draws from a unique and little known Irish idiosyncrasy: the rising of the sun at Dunsink Observatory occurs 25 minutes and 21 seconds later than at Greenwich, meaning that 8 pm Dublin Mean Time occurs at 8.25 pm GMT! Step in time anyone? According to Deirdre Moynihan, Programmes Manager at Music Network, “This new work is a complete piece, running for about 75 minutes. Some of the tunes selected are quite old and are woven around new compositions, so it’s a mix of contemporary and traditional music with dance not only as a visual element but part of the sound-scape of the whole piece”.

Best known for his performances and choreography in Riverdance and Dancing on Dangerous Ground, Colin Dunne has toured with musical groups The Chieftains and De Dannan and performed at such venues as Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music Hall. Three award-winning musicians from Ireland and Scotland complete the ensemble: Clare fiddler Tola Custy, one of the founding members of ground-breaking band Guidewires, acclaimed harpist Maeve Gilchrist and uilleann piper David Power, a former member of Liam Clancy’s Fairweather Band and regular collaborator with Martin Hayes’ Masters of Tradition Project.

Tickets €20. Pre-booking essential on 066 9478956 /

Art makes us human and true art can make us truer to who we can be as human beings. The song, the poem, the dance, the painting may be beautiful but they truly move us only if they express emotional truths. These songs of Red have moved me greatly.
