Singer Songwriter Wendy Jack, who has just been awarded ‘Runner Up’ in the prestigious ‘Song of the Year’ competition, is making her musical return to Dungannon this weekend. Wendy is delighted to be curating a variety show in aid of Friends of the Cancer Centre – a charity very close to many of our hearts. As Wendy says, ‘The aim of the show is not only to raise money for this very deserving charity, but also to showcase some of the amazing talent we have right here in Mid-Ulster. To that end, two more exceptional artists have just been added to the bill’.
So the official line-up joining Wendy this Saturday night will be:
The O’Neill Sisters – Joanne, Lia and Clíodhna are well known in the music scene often providing entertainment as part of the popular wedding band ‘Crush’. For this special event they will be showing off their famous 3 part harmonies performing original material from their recent EP ‘Send a little Love’.
Louise Taylor is an ambassador of Northern Irish comedy and needs little introduction to those who enjoy top quality entertainment. As a semi-finalist in the national comedy competition “So You Think You’re Funny” in 2014, her reputation was sealed and she’s been making faces ache ever since. Now based in Cookstown she is steadily working towards de-throning Jimmy Cricket.
Carol Dooey B.E.M. (recipient of The British Empire Medal) is an acclaimed playwright and well known facilitator of drama, especially in a community setting. Carol who has also had her work aired on BBC Radio Ulster, actively supports access to all the arts through her work in The Hub, Cookstown. This Saturday she will bring the audience into the ever entertaining world of ‘Wakes’.
Declan McGrath is a versatile musician and actor. Hot off the stage after a very successful run starring in the acclaimed ‘Rock of Ages’, he is now set to delight the Square Box audience with a selection from his personal repertoire. He will be joined by his equally talented daughters Ellen and Chloe. Together they have performed throughout Ireland, appeared on RTE and have had their music broadcast on local radio… but for now this multi-talented publican (who is also rumoured to be hosting the secret after show party) is keeping his Saturday night set-list a closely guarded secret.
Deirdre Cartmill is a published poet and an award winning screenwriter and playwright. Her plays have toured Northern Ireland and her short film ‘Two Little Boys’ was selected for The Belfast Film Festival 2013. Deirdre spent a year affiliated with The Seamus Heaney Centre for Poetry and is currently part of the Corners European intercultural project ‘Bridging the Silence’ which gives a voice to survivors of abuse and political violence. She is an experienced writing mentor and tutor and holds an MA with Distinction in Creative Writing from QUB. Deirdre will read some of her published works.
