Pat Coldrick - LIVE in Mick Murphy's, Monday, Feb 2, 2015

Pat Coldrick returns to play an intimate show at Mick Murphy's Bar, Ballymore Eustace, Co. Kildare, on Monday, February 2nd. Doors open 8:30pm, and admission is just €12

Pat Coldrick's session work and classical appearances have earned him a reputation of being one of the finest and most versatile guitarists in Ireland. As well as his touring performances, he has appeared on National Radio and T.V. and has studied with world renowned guitarists David Russell and Gabriel Esterellas. Pat has achieved worldwide acclaim for his unique sensitive and expressive style in his playing.

In 2014, Pat released his second album, 'CityJam', to critical acclaim. A collection of original compositions, together with a carefully chosen selection of classical, and more contemporary pieces, CityJam is a triumph, and showcases Pat Coldrick's superb talent, and his ability to reach his audience in a way few other 'classical' guitarists can. He is so much more than a 'classical guitarist', and his ability to connect with, and move his audience with his music, is inspiring, and, at times, moving. Highly recommended.

'Antarctica' -

John Spillane - LIVE in Mick Murphy's, Ballymore Eustace, Monday, January 26, 2015

John Spillane has been a regular contributor to live music in Ballymore Eustace for many, many years, and it is always a pleasure to welcome him back, particularly when he's bringing brand new music in the form of a collection of songs from his new record, 'The Man Who Came In From The Dark'.

John is a musician, songwriter, performer, recording artist, storyteller, poet, dreamer – a canvass filled with color and brilliance.  His music transports the listener; his live performance captivates the audience.  In a world filled with strife and upheaval, a time-out with John Spillane is enough to ease the load a bit on anyone lucky enough to bask in his light. The man and his music are pure magic, and you can see this for yourself when he plays BAG @ Mick Murphy's on Monday, January 26, when Doors open at 8:30pm, and admission is just €12 at the door.
