A night of ceol and craic at Pre­lude

Bray People - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

IT was a great night of story and song at Pre­lude Arts in Bray as renowned Gal­way sto­ry­teller and mu­si­cian Ain­drias de Staic made the jour­ney to Wick­low for a very spe­cial and in­ti­mate night.

The evening kicked off with mu­sic from Michael Mon­aghan who was joined by a few friends be­fore Ain­drias took to the stage him­self and he didn’t dis­ap­point.

Armed with his trusty fid­dle, Ain­drias’ play­ing is as unique to the west of Ire­land as his sense of hu­mour and the yarns which he spun to a cap­ti­vated au­di­ence.

The Gal­way man gained in­ter­na­tional ac­claim for his one man the­atre show ‘Around the World on 80 quid’ which went down to rave reviews world­wide and was par­tic­u­larly suc­cess­ful in Aus­tralia and New Zealand.

Pre­lude Arts were de­lighted to wel­come him to Bray and to get a flavour of what he does and he got a great re­cep­tion from the au­di­ence there who were in stitches at times upon hear­ing some of his tales. With ex­tra­or­di­nary tal­ent and hu­mour all rolled into one, those in attendance will be hop­ing Ain­drias makes the jour­ney back soon.
