Songwriters & Open-Mic Music Session on May 8

downloadLimerick Writers’ Centre presents a Songwriters & Open-Mic Music Session at 9pm at JP’s Bar (formerly Riddlers) on Sarsfield Street tomorrow (Thursday May 8).

The session, hosted by Sean MacLeod, takes place every second Thursday at 9pm and welcomes musicians and singers to perform either their own original material or their favourite songs.

Special guest this week is Paula Ryan. The singer-songwriter was born and bred in Tipperary and whose insightful songs “are inspired by the lyricism and musical passion of her Irish Gaelic roots & driven by the funky rhythmic influences and ‘wacky’ instruments of music from other cultures”.

To accompany her songs, Paula plays marimba/tongue drum, guitar and a variety of percussion instruments including bodhrán, djembe and darabuka.

The event welcome a wide variety of musical styles, from folk to alternative to spoken word. So if you want to take part, you can come along early and sign up for the open-mic. If you wish to play contact Dominic Taylor at to book a spot or simply turn up on the night.

All are welcome, to perform or just listen. Admission is free.
