Inspired by the work of other Irish and international collectives such as Community Music and Blocks Recording Club, in the next year the collective will release a sampler of their music and present several curated events.
The first of these shows will take place at Bewley’s Theatre Café on March 8th and will feature Enda Reilly, Fia Rua, Justin Grounds and Pearse McGloughlin. Doors are at 8.00pm and admission is 12 euro (10 for advance reservation from moc.liamg@evitcelloccisumnihcru).
