Modern Irish music icon, Cathy Davey will be bringing her intimate show to the gloriously quirky and unusual setting of the Oriel Centre, Dundalk Gaol on Saturday 19th
October at 8.30pm.
Cathy Davey has released five albums critically acclaimed albums including her most recent Live At Dublin Unitarian Church, which captures the magic of a live Cathy Davey show and has had numerous radio hits including ‘Little Red’, ‘Reuben’ and ‘Sing for Your Supper’ and ‘Never Before’ written and recorded for the Road Safety Authority speeding campaign
A gifted musician, Cathy learned to play the guitar after hearing ‘Appetite for Destruction’ by Guns ‘n’ Roses and got a Les Paul (electric guitar) copy because Slash used a real one! She plays ‘guitar, drums, bass, piano, percussion, accordion and whatever bank of instruments I can get a sound out of’.
Cathy Davey established an animal rescue charity ‘My Lovely Horse’ and working on her rescue farm on a daily basis for abandoned animals has driven her creatively as she uses the joy and sadness of her experiences to inspire her work. Surely something that her audience in the Oriel Centre will fully appreciate when she performs there in October.
Performances from Tom Baxter and the Frank & Walters earlier this year sold out very quickly due to the intimate nature of the venue and we expect likewise with tickets for Cathy Davey.
