Cap­i­tal goes global for Tró­caire

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Weekly Guide To Entertainm­ent Friday 13.04.2012 -

Pitched as “a gig with a dif­fer­ence”, Tró­caire­live will see Nige­rian folk drum­mers wel­come at­ten­dees to the Grand So­cial on Satur­day, April 28th, where they’ll be treated to sounds by a host of Ir­ish and African mu­si­cians while nib­bling on some Mid­dle East­ern snacks. Now That’s What I Call Multi-cul­tural.

The gig it­self, which aims to high­light Tró­caire’s fundrais­ing cam­paigns, will be MC’D by To­day FM Dj/un­der­tones front­man Paul Mcloone, and will fea­ture sets by Ir­ish acts Katie Kim, Fred, The Hot Sprock­ets and Daniel Scan­nell. Join­ing them will be Ugan­dan Dembe Troupe dancers, Nige­rian drum­ming duo Talk­ing Drums, and Filipino band Manila Rhythm. A chilled-out set by DJ col­lec­tive Groove­ment Soul will round off the night.

Tick­ets are ¤10 and avail­able from en­ter­tain­ in ad­vance, or on a first-come, first-served ba­sis on the door. “This truly prom­ises to be a gig with a dif­fer­ence,” said Joanne Mcgarry of Tró­caire.
