Black Gate Cultural Centre is a place we visited for the Nialler9 Podcast in the last throes of lockdown in January this year.

The centre, which also moonlights as a venue, a label, recordings stuido and wine bar which we found out for ourselves. They released the debut album from Niamh Regan too.

This Sunday, October 23rd, from 7pm, Black Gate is hosting a special three & a half hour event called the Black Gate Invitational off-site and down the road in Galway City at the Town Hall Theatre bringing musicians, writers and poets together for an evening of improvisational performance.

Songwriters Rioghnach Connolly, Peter Broderick, Suzanne Savage, Róisín Elsafty, Inni-K, Little John Nee, Anna Mullarkey, and Rodney Owl will be joined by writers Claire-Louise Bennett, Eva Bourke, Alan MacMonagle, Taim Haimet, Louis de Paor, and Elizabeth Reapy for an improvisational evening of music and literature against the backdrop of a nine-piece big band.

Black Gate Invitational Big Band are Matthew Berrill, Naomi Berrill, Matthew Jacobson, Nick Roth, Olesya Zdorovetska, Aengus Hackett, Greg Felton, Floriane Blancke, and Derek White.

Black Gate Invitational allows for the magic of improvisation, giving artists an option to let their work be interpreted live with other voices and to see new sparks emerge from their work.
