The ÉIGSE 06 PARTY IN THE PARK is a weekend treat for
all the family, with entertainment and activities to suit all
PARTY IN THE PARK
Sunday June 11
1pm to 6pm
Carlow Town Park
some great music by acts from Carlow and beyond on the
music stage with live performances throughout the day by
Autograph, Chadsko, Cormac O'Caoimh, Pzazz, and Tadhg Cooke
by the river Barrow in Carlow Town Park:
Autograph are Elton, Paulie and Coade. Their well
crafted, driving pop songs enhanced by their three-part vocal harmonies will,
no doubt, grab the attention of the masses over the coming months and years. Their
live debut at the prestigious SpiegelTent (Dublin
Fringe Festival 2005) led to an immediate management contract.
Chadsko are one of the top original unsigned bands in Ireland going strong since
February 2005. They are a six-piece Derry band that create sweet funky toe-tapping sounds that just
make you want to shout ‘yeah!’
Cormac O Caoimh is a solo performer from Cork, ex singer-songwriter of The Citadels.
Cormac (solo) has supported, Declan O Rourke, Josh Rouse, Mark Geary, Nick
Kelly, Freddie White, Mick Hanley and Damien Dempsey to name but a few.
He has also ventured further afield playing headline gigs and slots in
Edinburgh, London and New York.
Pzazz are four sopranos with their own unique brand of music. Aoife, Claire, Fiona and
met through producer Willie Hughes who was looking for classically trained
sopranos ready to do something a little different. Instead of doing the
usual soprano standards, Pzazz play original music that brings together
classical voices, Latin rhythms and pop melodies.
Tadhg Cooke is one of Ireland’s most interesting emerging recording artists.
A seasoned performer, Cooke has shared the stage with the cream of the Irish crew: Damien Rice, Glen
Hansard, Mundy, Jerry
Fish & The Mudbug Club and The Walls. He has also completed a nationwide tour
with BellX1 and his jazz-tinged acoustic pop has been described as “eminently likeable,
utterly enviable” by The Irish Times.
The PARTY IN THE PARK is also a chance to catch special roaming
performances by street entertainment companies Bui Bolg, The Primitives
and Diced Carrots, who feature throughout the festival
in ÉIGSE OUTDOORS in association with Fairgreen Shopping Centre,
and whose mad-cap antics
will bring a smile to everyone’s face.
There will be performances by local musical groups, face painters to entertain
the kids, an opportunity to raise money for charity with the Lions’ Club
Duck Race and the Carlow & South Leinster Rape Crisis Centre
So come on down and join in the party!
