A Magical Evening with Irish Joe Lynch

For some years now, Irish Joe Lynch has been wooing audiences at all the major festivals around Australia.  Next Monday evening we are lucky enough to have him join us for a cosy evening house concert in Mullumbimby.

‘Irish Joe hails from the remote and beautiful mountains of west Cork in the south of Ireland where the art of storytelling is still very strong.  When Joe performs, one can’t help but be transported by his natural brogue and his unique ability to capture your imagination.  He weaves a blend of ancient Celtic tales and dynamic and romantic poetry that leaves his audience spellbound’.
Come one, come all and prepare to be thoroughly and most delightfully enchanted! (But get in quick, as numbers will be capped).
When:  7pm, Monday 21st March (Doors open at 6.30).
Where:  At a lovely house in Mullumbimby ~ Address will be given with your ticket booking.
Ticket:  $20 (Includes Chai and Nibblies) Children free.
