Terryglass, County Tipperary

Festival Opening with Jamie Lee Forde & Richard Brennan

Date: Wednesday 16th August

Time: 7.15pm

Venue: Terryglass Hall

Join us for the Festival Launch with some great local music from Jamie Lee Forde and performance poetry with Richard Brennan.

We are delighted to have Jamie as part of the Festival’s opening night celebrations. At just 19, Jamie, who hails from Cloughjordan, is already getting amazing exposure. Some of the acts he has supported include The Riptide Movement and Ryan Sheridan. Jamie is definitely “One To Watch”!

Richard Brennan is a performance poet who has been captivating Irish audiences for the last few years, performing at Electric Picnic and Body & Soul, as well as at Longford and Skibbereen Arts Festivals. Richard is MC for the Scene of the Rhyme in Tullamore, a monthly showcase of the best in spoken word, live music and comedy.

Richard’s material is wry, meditative and observational, seeking to extract the extraordinary from the seemingly mundane.

Jenny Fox’s exhibition, ‘The Places In Between’ and Damer House’s ‘Homeland’ will also be launched at the opening.

Come along and enjoy and find out what we have on offer for the 19th Terryglass Arts Festival!
