Tribal Drumming

Posted on

The final event of Skerries Soundwaves 2016 was our tribal drumming workshop, one of our favorite’s!

The Little Theatre played host to this two hour workshop which was hosted by John Bowker. John designed the workshop to be inclusive of all groups in our community regardless of their ability!

The first hour consisted of a workshop in which attendee’s got to try their own hand at tribal drumming and showing what they had! This was followed by a short interval and afterwards the crowd were treated to an amazing one hour performance by the drummers.

A great night was had by all.

One of our most popular children’s events this year was our Bubble Shows in Holmpatrick School! Split into two groups to cater for younger children and older, those who attended got to have loads of fun with bubbles! Starting from small bubble’s. to bubble art, to square bubbles, bubbles inside bubbles, smoking bubbles and getting yourself inside a bubble, this fun filled event was a great hit for all!

The catchy ukulele  community “Ukuhooligans” who were fresh from their annual Ukulele festival brought their eye catching Hawaiian shirts and friendly attitude back to Skerries. The Skerries Soundwaves regulars entertained audiences of all age with their fun filled and catchy performance leaving everyone in flying form with a smile on their face afterwards!

Gig at the Mills 2016

Posted on

After the fear of rain making an appearance, we were lucky to have a perfect evenings condition for the 2016 Gig at the Mills! Organised by David Diebold and Cian Mulhall, it was an incredible sold out night in the amazing venue that is Skerries Mills!

Morrisey and Marshall were our opening act as they entertained the crowd with their acoustic set. Next up we had local band Risky Business who really got the crowd rocking away which rolled perfectly into our main act of the night, Something Happens! The hit 80’s  band rocked Skerries Mills and the crowd loved it! An amazing night was had by all.

North Dublin Opera: Mozart’s Magic Flute

Posted on

We were fortunate enough this year to again have an outstanding performance from the North Dublin Opera. This year they wowed the Little Theatre with their performance of Mozart’s Magic Flute.

The magnificent costume’s and performance brought the audience through a strange fairy tale land with princes and princesses, magic genies and wicked queens! It was a very enjoyable and engaging production which brought the magic of Mozart to Skerries.

Classical Summer Breeze

Posted on

It was a wonderful candle-lit evening of light classical music performed by musical sensation Karen Leitner on the flute and Teresa O’Donnell on the harp.

Attendee’s were treated to classical favourite’s with mystic Irish air, Karen’s own heavenly composition and an inspiring finale of “Carnival of Venice”.

Delicious Austrian wine was served at the interval which was kindly donated by the Austrian Irish Society.

The event was a wonderful evening, many  thanks to our sponsors The Austrian Irish Society and The Austrian Embassy in Ireland.
