After several SOLD OUT and hugely successful events, Sober Sessions is back with a bang bringing you the wonderful sounds and harmonies of The Evertides.

The Evertides have been making waves in the Irish music scene with a fantastic debut year in 2014. They played sell-out shows at Whelans, Chancery Lane and The Abbey’s Peacock Theatre, with appearances at festivals such as Whelans Ones To Watch and supporting Wallis Bird and The Lost Brothers as part of their European tours. 2015 brings a host of shows including Doolin Folk Festival, Bodies That Never Tire (curated Yeats event for the International Literature Festival), Young Hearts, Sober Sessions and many more around Ireland.

A trio of classically trained multi-instrumentalists and close harmony singers, The Evertides are Alma Kelliher, Ruth McGill and Ruth Smith. With a haunting mix influenced by close vocal harmony and folk song, they reinvent classics, unearth hidden gems and bring their own original songs to life.

They are each professional music makers working everyday with the technical, compositional and performace aspects of music.

The Evertides is where they meet and the result is something special.

 

“Ruth McGill, Ruth Smith and Alma Kelliher are the real deal.”

Put a spring in your step

with our

spring talks for living

 

It’s that time of the year again, the evenings are getting a bit longer, the sun a little brighter and the daffodils are beginning to show themselves. Soon bright pops of yellow will brighten our parks and gardens.

A new season of great talks to put a spring in your step. To kickstart we have Dan Smyth, from The Irish Sleep Apnoea Trust, who earlier this month gave a great talk ‘The Importance of Sleep’ to a jam packed room! Due to popular demand we have invited him back on Tuesday 24th February.  This is a talk you don’t want to miss! get your tickets here

And thats just the beginning! Check out the flyer below for a great round of talks on acupuncture, bee’s, women’s health and mindfulness…
