posterAn Evening With Joni Mitchell feat. Liz Scattergood 

Friday 12th July 2019 8pm

Returning for the third time to Tech Amergin by popular demand, Liz Scattergood brings an infectious passion for the music of arguably the greatest and most influential songwriter of her lifetime.

Through a selection of Joni’s material spanning 4 decades, she weaves some of her own delightful songs along with insights into Joni’s life and music.

Liz’s spellbinding voice and guitar playing are backed by her multi-instrumentalist husband Andrew ‘Skatz’ Scattergood on piano, guitar, percussion, and vocals.

Booking is essential for this show because those who were lucky enough to catch Liz in previous shows will surely want to return.

All profits from this concert and the prize raffle go towards multisensory equipment and materials for Innabubble’s unique sensory puppet adventure ‘The Mergle’s Tale’ for people with intellectual disabilities or dementia, and young children. This inspiring, stimulating and unique show will be on at Tech Amergin too, three days after Liz’s performance. (See website for details www.innabubble.com )

‘The Mergle’s Tale’

A magical, musical, sensory puppet show for your inner child

The Mergle’s Tale is a story from deep beneath the sea of the not-quite mermaid girl Sheah, who is banished by the evil Nefando for being different. Using her magical gift of making stories come alive, Sheah takes her new friend Otto on an inspirational journey through a world of imagination towards a final showdown with Nefando in the stars.

This modern fable from Innabubble’s director Andrew ‘Skatz’ Scattergood is unique, fun and full of puppets, lights, songs, bubbles, pirate fish and an octopus artist who thinks he’s a genius.  It’s ‘a tale of no tail, with a mermaid attached!’ Tickets €5pp. Pre-booking essential on 066 9478956.

Bothering the Dead! POSTPONED

Songs, Stories, Rants, and Revelations – all in one very unique performance!

A Reckoning with the Ancestors

Written & performed by Catherine Cunningham

Saturday 20th July 2019

When Catherine receives an unusual transmission from a tomato plant, she is forced to reconsider the legacy of being part of a good and decent Irish Catholic family.  She reluctantly agrees to its request that she sing the song of the natural world “on whom you depend for everything that you have and everything that you are.”

As the song unfolds, she rapidly finds herself mired in a world of liars, emperors, sorcerers and astronauts – with an interventionist granny hovering in the background.

She discovers a generations-deep conspiracy to banish the natural world from her seeing, and ultimately finds herself in a confrontation with her long-dead Granny – and the proud line of women who came before her.

These women lure Catherine down through the pain of her cultural and family herstory and then into her own personal psyche where she is shown how she too has made a bargain not to see – and how this has cost her “the seeing of her eyes and the living presence of love”.

Highly irreverent and deeply spiritual, Bothering the Dead is an ecospiritual journey of healing and reconciliation culminating in a message from the ancestors that unless we remember our true relationship to the world around us, we will bequeath a terrible legacy to coming generations. Tickets €12. Booking essential on 066 9478956.

with special guest Annie Kinsella

Wednesday 31st July 2019 8pm

Kieran  Goss and Annie Kinsella return to Tech Amergin with songs from their critically acclaimed debut duo album ‘Oh, The Starlings’…… songs, stories and harmonies that transport the listener to another world, this is music from the heart, for the heart… A show to make you laugh and cry… A show to move you with its honest beauty… A show not to be missed.

“Oh, The Starlings, the debut album from Irish duo Kieran Goss and Annie Kinsella, is quite simply stunning. Great songs, beautiful harmonies and an artistic triumph that constantly reminds us that less is more.” Irish Times

“Individually, they are both gifted singers but when they sing together, magic happens… the harmonies, the chemistry… just sublime.” Time Out Magazine.

Recorded in New York with eight-time Grammy winning engineer and mixer Kevin Killen at the helm (David Bowie, Peter Gabriel, U2, Elvis Costello), ‘Oh, The Starlings’ has been described by songwriter Rodney Crowell as: “So good, it’s heartbreaking… the record itself feels like an old friend.”

Having already won the kinds of reviews that signal their elevation onto the international stage, Kieran Goss and Annie Kinsella’s ‘Oh, The Starlings’ is a work of art with poetry and melody at its heart. While at times reminiscent of the great music of the 70s – Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell or Leonard Cohen – Goss and Kinsella have undeniably succeeded in creating something magnificently, uniquely theirs: an album that is both classic and modern, simple and multi-layered, quiet and dynamic. Tickets €25. Booking essential on 066 9478956..
