Hailing from the Armagh-Monaghan border, Dani Larkin is a singer-songwriter and folk musician who is already being heralded as one of Ireland’s finest songwriters. Larkin has been creating music for several years and is a well-known face on the live circuit in Ireland.

2021 is set to be Dani Larkin's breakthrough year - starting with her appearance at Folk Alliance International this coming February after she was selected by Culture Ireland to make her debut. This year will also see the release of her debut album 'Notes For A Maiden Warrior' due for release early this year, with talks of a live album show in collaboration with Irish Arts Centre (New York) on the cards.

In 2019 she was artist-in-residence at Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival and has shared stages with the likes of Rufus Wainwright, Lisa O'Neill, Wallis Bird and Joshua Burnside. Things have been busy for this artist, all things considered - with recent appearances at Ireland Music Week, Other Voices (Belfast and Ballina), Sound of Belfast and Output.

A storyteller by nature, her music is inspired by the folktales she was raised with, intertwined with elements of traditional melodies and rhythms from around the world in a timeless tradition. She is a seasoned performer who is impossible to ignore once taken to the stage.

“She is steadily emerging as a rising star on the Irish contemporary and alt-folk scene.” - The Irish Times

”Powerfully arresting sound” - Ruth Smith, RTÉ Radio One

"A totally enchanting offering filled with vivid songwriting jangled indie-folk and an outstanding central vocal performance" - The Last Mixed Tape

“A multi-instrumentalist with a remarkable knack for eking out sublime, burrowing melodies evocative of Irish traditional music.” - The Thin Air

"One of the finest songwriters of our times” - Sean Kelly, Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival

Callans Kicks Live | Iontas Theatre Castleblayney

Callans Kicks Live



This event was rescheduled from April 25th and also 22nd/23rd Oct 2021. All tickets remain valid for this new date.


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
