I sing a song of the croissant: breakfast of troubadours
Sunday, April 14, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm| €15
Our popular ‘bardic brunch’ is back with a Gallic twist as we take a break from the hearty fry-up to embrace the croissant! With a sparkling line up of Galway-based writers including Rita Ann Higgins, Aoife Casby, Pete Mullineux and Ruth Quinlan and with music from our MC, Gerry Hanberry and Pat Collins, playing some gypsy jazz and songs from their current band ‘Gazlight’. There will also be music from Gerry Savage and his Galway Ukulele Ensemble (otherwise known as ‘the Galway Ukers’). This is a petit déjeuner you won’t want to miss!
Rita Ann Higgins’ new collection, Our Killer City has just been published by Salmon. Her first five poetry collections were also published by Salmon and Bloodaxe Books published her following five books. Aoife Casby writes fiction and poetry and also works as an editor and visual artist. Pete Mullineaux has published four collections, most recently How to Bake a Planet (Salmon 2016). Ruth Quinlan won the 2018 Galway University Hospital Arts Trust Poems for Patience competition, the 2018 Blue Nib Summer Chapbook competition, the 2014 Over the Edge New Writer of the Year Award and the 2012 Hennessy Literary Award for First Fiction.
