COURT­HOUSE’S NEW SEA­SON IS UN­VEILED

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

AN EX­CIT­ING new sea­son is now un­der way at The Court­house Arts Cen­tre, Ti­na­hely with four new events tak­ing place dur­ing the month of Oc­to­ber.

On Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 11, the Court­house pre­sents Ama­tis Pi­ano Trio, an ex­hil­a­rat­ing young pi­ano trio which pre­sents a pro­gramme of Ha­dyn, Schu­mann, Feery and Men­delssohn.

Since win­ning the au­di­ence prize at the Gracht­en­fes­ti­val-Con­cours in Am­s­ter­dam and with a de­but at the Royal Con­cerge­bouw, they’ve taken the cham­ber mu­sic scene by storm. On this tour they will pre­miere a new work by Ir­ish com­poser Amanda Feery, com­mis­sioned by Mu­sic Net­work.

Doors open at 8.30 p.m. and ad­mis­sion is €16/€14.

Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 19 brings An Ex­plo­ration of the Words and Mu­sic of Paul Si­mon to the Court­house for the Court­house Café. The line-up in­cludes Frank Gal­lagh and Brian Whe­lan and this is a fundraiser for the cen­tre. Doors open at 8.30 p.m. and tick­ets are €10.

Art lovers are in­vited to the launch of the Heart of the Mat­ter, an ex­hi­bi­tion of 15 new works by Ark­low artist Pauline Merry with quotes se­lected by Lida Quigley. The show opens at 4 p.m. on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 21 and runs un­til De­cem­ber 6. Ad­mis­sion is free.

An­other one for mu­sic fans is The Roller Trio which play the cen­tre on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 26. Ex­pect plenty of punchy grooves, high oc­tane tech­ni­cal­ity, de­cep­tively catchy riffs and swirling elec­tron­ica as the Mer­cury Award-nom­i­nated Roller Trio roar into Ti­na­hely.

With in­flu­ences rang­ing from Fly Trio and Tim Berne to Queens of the Stone Age and Fly­ing Lo­tus, the Leeds­based trio waste no time in get­ting heads bob­bing with their idio­syn­cratic blend of pin-tight beats, cool melodies and jud­der­ing stop-start mo­tifs. New to the line-up, Chris Sharkey brings bass and am­bi­ent wiz­ardry to the mix, his dark, multi-lay­ered tex­tures the per­fect foil to James Main­war­ing’s John Zor­nian abstract-sax and the in­ge­nious, twist­ing grooves of drum­mer Luke Red­din-Wil­liams. Doors open at 8.30 p.m. and tick­ets cost €16/€14.

Roller Trio will per­form on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 26
