Several Dances is a one-day event being put on by Louis Scully (Telephones, Discotekken, The Pictures) in Ennistymon, Co. Clare on Easter Sunday April 12th.
Buses will leave in the morning from Dublin and bring everyone home later that night. On the way there, Hugh Cooney will be telling stories in one, and a flower-headband workshop is happening on the other.
Once you land, there will be 2 outdoor parties with DJs, 1/2 area of live music, an Irish dance céilí session, a guided nature walk that circles the town through the Fairies Glen (approx 30 mins), poetry, food, pints & lots more. The main venue is Pot Duggans and is a good spot.

These will take place in a number of spots. One of them will be the basement space in The Cheese Press. This is run by Clare local Sinéad who speaks a number of languages, including Tibetan, no less. John Francis Flynn is a fast rising folk singer of the Irish tradition. Recent support slots for the likes of Lankum show the kind of path he’s on. He is an amazing performer, but sure, so is everyone on our lineup. And they all have the loveliest bottoms. Worth the price of admission alone.
