Harp and feet at Naul, 10 Apr. 2015 (and elsewhere from 1 Apr.)

Thanks to the Séamus Ennis Arts Centre (SEAC) at Naul, Co. Dublin, for its schedule of events up to Friday 10 April. On that day, percussive dancer Nic Gareiss (USA) and Edinburgh harpist Maeve Gilchrist will present a 'Dance the tune' workshop (3.00 p.m.) and a concert (8.30 p.m.). Doors open in both cases half-an-hour before show time; admission for the workshop is €10 in advance, and for the concert €13 / €10 in advance and €15 / €12 at the door.

Nic Gareiss has danced over here several times, recently with This Is How We Fly. Your editor has enjoyed his duet with Bruce Molsky on 'Jeff Sturgeon' pretty well as much as anything on YouTube (see it here). From the video on the SEAC website, Maeve Gilchrist is an outstanding harpist for traditional dance tunes. The Naul night is in fact the last chance to see them on a ten-day tour in Ireland; the full schedule is:

Wed. April 1st: Kaleidoscope Night, Odessa Club, Dublin 2
Thurs. 2nd: The Spirit Store, Dundalk, Co. Louth
Sat. 4th: 'The House Presents', Annesley House, 70 North Strand, Dublin
Sun. 5th: The White Horse, Ballincollig, Co. Cork
Tues. 7th-Wed. 8th: Teaching residency, Irish World Academy, University of Limerick
Thurs. 9th: Cultúrlann Sweeney, Kilkee, Co. Clare
Fri. 10th: Workshop and concert at Séamus Ennis Arts Centre, Naul, Co. Dublin
