Ben Reel

'The Nashville Calling` is the title of upcoming 9th studio album by Irish artist Ben Reel due to be released early 2020. Produced by Will Kimbrough and Tommy Womack and featuring Garry W Tallent on bass from the legendary E Street Band. The album contains 11 new tracks all written by Ben Reel which was recorded at Skinny Elephant studio in Nashville. It was all done and dusted in just 3 days with all live takes. Following the critically acclaimed experimental slow burner `Land of Escape' from 2018, this new record has a more Americana, Rock, live band feel.

 

Since his debut album `This Is The Movie' back in 1999, Ben has reinvented himself from album to album, influenced by different styles of music over the years. As one critic saying,  " He's not afraid to throw in some in folk, soul, reggae vibes, which in turn call to mind John Hiatt at his best". Another describing it as somewhere in the middle ground between rock and jazz or a sound that is sometimes reminiscent of Dylan and the Band.

In a solo career which now spans over 20 years Ben has received  worldwide critical acclaim with numerous high profile TV/Radio appearances like BBC, RTE and Dutch NPO radio. Supporting names like Jools Holland, Alabama 3 & The Cranberries and has collaborated musically with such names as Hal Ketchum & The Blockheads. He has co written and performed live with his fellow countryman Tony McLoughlin and some of Nashville's finest like David Olney & Irene Kelley.

In the past Ben was selected to play an official showcase at Folk alliance in Memphis TN and has toured as double bill with Tommy Womack (Nashville) in the U.S & UK and also with legendary American folk singer/songwriter Eric Andersen in the UK & NL. While in Nashville he has been invited to play the famous Bluebird cafe on a number of occasions, most recently Sept 2018.

Over the last 10 years Ben has enjoyed successful tours in Ireland, UK, Europe & U.S.A, receiving rave reviews and attracting a growing loyal fan base. He has graced big festivals such as Jamming@Hippie Jacks (USA), Musiktan festival in Bilbao, (ESP). Haarlem Jazz & Huntenpop (NL), Robin Hood folk festival (UK), Kilkenny rhythm & roots, Cork jazz & Electric Picnic (EIRE).

Golden Jackets & Black Bow Ties

30 January 2020 8:00 pm - 01 February 2020 10:00 pm

Golden Jackets & Black Bow Ties
In this new play, Johnny Johnston and Mick Garrett are two veteran musicians whose long musical careers look set to end playing in small pubs in the local area where they get little attention and even less adulation. Then out of the blue comes a chance to play a big gig which fires their enthusiasm right up. But as they start rehearsing, a rariety, we begin to get an insight into their relationship and motivation for performing to disinterested punters.

In this comedy where Buddy Holly looms large, where they attempt to make a funeral singer a star and where a sceptical drummer keeps them in check, these two long time friends, with the help of Johnny’s wife Mary, discover their need for recognition in whatever guise it comes.   

Supported by the Creative Ireland Programme and Monaghan County Council

Des Bishop
MIA MAMMA 

I am often asked “where do you get your material from?” The truth is really that I try to see the funny in everything. My mother died in March 2019 and of course it was sad and grief can be tough sometimes but I saw a lot of funny in that too. Since death comes to us all and grief is something most of us will experience I thought there must be plenty of people who would like that funny to be shared. Also I did a show about my Dad being sick back in 2010 and I couldn’t face my mother in the afterlife because I know her first question would be “your Father got a show, how come I didn’t get one?”

I think it’s tougher to lose your mum. My Dad was best supporting actor. My mother was the actress in a leading role. You are never ready when the star of the show dies. So this is a show about My mother. It’s a show about motherhood and sacrifice, anxiety and grief, the mistakes you make as a mother and a son and the hard road to forgiveness and finally it’s about loss, grief and the chaos that surrounds it.

Where do I get my material from?

Life and death!

This is the classic of our season. The 1974 New German Cinema drama, directed by Werner Herzog, follows the real story of foundling Kaspar who lived the first 17 years of his life in a cellar, without any human contact except for a man who feeds him, and who one day leaves him in the town of Nuremberg where he becomes a subject of curiosity to the locals, before being rescued by an elderly, kind professor who does his best to help him develop. But having grown up away from the norms and conventions of “civilized” behaviour, Kaspar will find it difficult to fit in.

Gemma Bovery | BF@Í
In Anne Fontaine’s comedy, Martin is a baker who has a deep appreciation of one of France’s most celebrated novels, Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert, in which a young woman’s romantic ideals fail to match the realities of her country life, leading her into two affairs and eventually suicide. One day, Martin meets English newly-weds moving into the house next to his. Their names, Gemma and Charles Bovery, echo the characters of Flaubert’s novel. Bit by bit, he becomes obsessed with the idea that Gemma's behaviour replicates that of her fictional near-namesake, and that she is headed for the same tragic finale. His attempts to intervene prove hilariously disastrous.

The Blindboy Podcast

28 March 2020 8:00 pm

The Blindboy Podcast

Blindboy's increased notability away from his band Rubberbandits, has allowed for him to explore wider avenues and create perhaps outrageously mind-altering brainchildren which can only be described as courageous, yet bonkers.

With a number one selling book under his belt and a podcast that has reached interest not only in Ireland but internationally, the satirist could possibly single-handedly change people's mind set on mental health and the deafening stigma it surrounds.

Outspoken, informed and empathetic, Blindboy engages his audience with an unusual touch of realism. There is a very authentic feeling of "freedom" he  exhumes which allows his listeners and participants to openly speak their mind without judgement and no topic off limits - certainly an air of belonging encircling the space you find yourself in when listening or in company of Blindboy.

His latest innovative creation, The Blindboy podcast only espouses mental health issues but reaches further into an eclectic spectrum of current topics from gun laws to feminism, racism or a bit of history. Blindboy has it covered.

His uncanny ability to articulate what nearly everyone is thinking is unparalleled and something that is sorely needed in Irish society.- The Daily Edge

Callans Kicks Live
CALLAN’S KICKS LIVE NATIONWIDE TOUR 2020
 

Impressionist Oliver Callan brings his award-winning Callan’s Kicks comedy show to life on stage for the first time in five years.
 
Aiken Promotions and Leo Varadkar (ledgebag and Teesh) are totes excited to announced RTÉ’s award-winning show Callan’s Kicks Live on stage nationwide in 2020. Oliver Callan brings his huge cast of characters on the road for the first time in the age of Leo, Boris and Trump. It’s no Kylie concert, but Leo heads a troupe of voices from the world of Irish politics, sport and entertainment.
 
As the 2020 General Election campaign gets underway, Callan goes from town to town deconstructing our leaders and stars in a special night of comedy and satirical commentary. Join the Marty Party, Paschal “I only have a certain amount of money” Donohoe, hear an alternative history of Ireland, a whirlwind tour of county accents, movie stars and GAA legends.
 
Ever wondered what really happens during Marian Finucane’s newspaper panel? What did Enda Kenny do next? Who’s actually pulling Mary Lou McDonald’s strings? Is Michael D Higgins still a thing? Why is Bertie back? Can Dermot Bannon be stopped and brought to justice?
 
Oliver Callan brings his most ambitious live show on the road yet, with dozens of impressions, sketches and voices kicking our leaders and legends into the next decade.

Praise for Callan’s Kicks Live:
 
“Totes lolcano. I love laughing at myself because it gives my amazeballs abs a workout and makes me look 5% more relatable and less like a neocon passing off my resting bitch-face disdain for Middle Ireland as intellectual aloofness”
- Leo Varadkar, Taoiseach and Minister for Ignoring the Housing Crisis
 
“Let’s get this show done! Callan’s Kicks Live can travel freely across the border, which after Brexit will be invisible, like a pair of hands groping under the linen for a pair of thighs at a dinner table in the 90s”
- Boris Johnson, Prime Minister and Shaved Yeti
 
“No one loves Ireland more than me, with its bagpipes and haggis puddings. And the data centres all in the one place to make it easier for my friends to hack”
- Donald W.T.F. Trump, President and Box of Taco Fries in a Suit
 
“I’m so excited about this show, a bit of wee has come out”
- Enda Kenny, waiting on a massive retirement lump sum with no tax or f**ks given
