Fi­nal acts for this year’s Spiegel­tent

New Ross Standard - - NEWS -

TOP Ir­ish band The Strypes are one of the fi­nal acts an­nounced for this year’s Wex­ford Spiegel­tent Fes­ti­val.

The stel­lar line up is com­pleted by Foil Arms and Hog, The Strypes, Hud­son Tay­lor, Booka Br­rass, Fang­club, Lords of Strut, Tum­ble Cir­cus and Bosco.

Hud­son Tay­lor will play the Wex­ford Spiegel­tent Fes­ti­val on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 26.

Ir­ish duo, brothers Harry and Al­fie, have just an­nounced their brand new sin­gle - ‘Feel It Again’, the first fresh mu­sic in two years. ‘Feel It Again’ was pro­duced by Ryan Had­lock who is best known for his work with The Lu­m­i­neers and Vance Joy, and mixed by Ruadhri Cush­nan (Mum­ford & Sons, Ed Sheeran).

On Oc­to­ber 27 Ca­van band the Strypes will take to the stage. The four piece rhythm and blues band have been gig­ging around the pubs, clubs and fes­ti­vals of Ire­land, Eng­land and Europe since June 2011 play­ing a no-non­sense set of ‘speed blues’, mix­ing re­work­ings of rhythm and blues clas­sics with their orig­i­nals.

On Oc­to­ber 28 Ire­land’s most lov­able id­iots, Lords of Strut, bring their mis­chief and may­hem to the tent with their ‘Ab­so­lute Leg­ends’ tour.

Charm, sharp wit, and good hu­mour with flashes of sur­pris­ing ac­ro­batic skill and just enough naugh­ti­ness to keep kids and adults guess­ing this high en­ergy show is suit­able for all ages.

Foil, Arms and Hog will per­form on Oc­to­ber 24 with their new show OinK. OinK is a faced paced sketch show fea­tur­ing a col­lec­tion of songs for the el­derly, a bag­gage han­dlers interpretive dance and a shop that naively only sells bal­a­clavas.

Tum­ble Cir­cus bring you non stop bul­let­proof fam­ily fun en­ter­tain­ment on Oc­to­ber 21. Through slap- stick ac­ro­bat­ics, haz­ardous aerial tricks and fly­ing hula-hoops, this funny and flex­i­ble show fea­tures great comic tim­ing and even bet­ter gym­nas­tic flair.

The Lam­bert Pup­pet Theatre re­turns to Wex­ford Spiegel­tent on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 15 with Bosco and Hansel and Gre­tel.

Tick­ets for the all the newly an­nounced acts with the ex­cep­tion of Hud­son Tay­lor went on sale last Fri­day while the tick­ets for Hud­son Tay­lor go on sale at 10 a.m. this Thurs­day, August 31.

Four Spiegel­tent shows have al­ready sold out: Smokie on Oc­to­ber 13; Paul Heaton and Jac­qui Ab­bott of Beau­ti­ful South fame on Oc­to­ber 28 and the two Imelda May gigs on Oc­to­ber 23 and Oc­to­ber 31.

This year’s Spiegel­tent Fes­ti­val runs for 17 days from Fri­day to Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 13 to 29 and fea­tures a wealth of en­ter­tain­ment.

For fur­ther de­tails and to book tick­ets visit wex­ford­spiegel­ or Lantern Events’ book­ing of­fice at 1 North Main Street. A new ex­hibitor, the Ca­hore artist Eithne Ryan has joined the Mar­ket House De­sign gallery in Gorey.

Eithne is no new­comer to the artis­tic scene hav­ing been a prac­tis­ing artist for 30 years and en­joyed solo shows in Ire­land and overseas. The mainly self-taught artist has en­joyed a love of paint­ing since early child­hood and be­gan paint­ing in pas­tels in 1990.

‘We are de­lighted to wel­come Eithne to Mar­ket House De­sign. We have had lots of in­ter­est in her work so far. It’s such a fan­tas­tic ad­di­tion to the gallery,” said Mar­ket House De­sign ad­min­is­tra­tor Michelle Del­mar.

There is a se­lec­tion of Eithne’s pas­tel works, both framed and un­framed prints on dis­play.
