29th September - The Benedictine Quartet

The Benedictine Quartet is a newly formed folk group which is made up of Ross Boland, Dylan Fogarty, Sean Deegan and Stephen McGrath (from Crow Black Chicken). The musical collective spawned from the Phil Carroll’s midweek improv sessions with the late greats Philip Donnelly and Tony McLoughlin along with current members Sean Deegan and Dylan Fogarty. The name is taken from the monks secret formula for all things good for the lungs, purely medicinal of course!! Their mission is to leave every audience enriched in an acoustic experience delivered with the  passion the songwriter intended. They pay homage to the acousticCountry/Americana genre populated by the great Texan songwriters Townes Van Zandt, Nanci Griffith and Guy Clark to County Down’s unique son Tony McLoughlin, Dublin’s own Philip Donnelly and the artists he supported along the way, John Prine, Lee Clayton and the Everly Brothers.

6th October - Edel Meade

Award-winning singer-songwriter and Tipperary woman EDEL MEADE will perform at South Tipperary Arts Centre on Thursday 6th October following the release of her critically acclaimed solo album BRIGIDS AND PATRICIAS last year. One of The Irish Times’ Best Albums of 2021- this extraordinary collection of original songs draws from Irish history, Irish folklore and current affairs in exploring what it means to be a woman in 21st century Ireland. Edel is noted for her mesmerising performances and her haunting, powerful music.  She spent over a decade working as a professional jazz vocalist in Dublin before taking the time to hone her songwriting craft. These days, for Edel Meade, music-making is less about playing within the confines of a specific genre and more about stretching her abilities as a creative artist with a lot to say.

13th October - The Wood Of O

If you enjoy haunting, heartfelt vocals that reach into the bottom of your soul, melodic finger style acoustic guitar that flows between genres, then this group is worth searching out.

20th October - Kate Twohig & VALE

Kate Twohig is a singer and piano player, and has years of performance, teaching and directional experience in many styles, genres and settings. As a songwriter and recording artist, she has honed musical arrangement skills working with musicians of multiple backgrounds, particularly focusing on work with string ensembles for pop/rock. She has played in wedding and cover bands, has performed at large festivals, and has shared the stage with established names of the Irish music scene. In 2013 as part of the Clonmel Junction Arts Festival 'We Can Be Heroes' concert, Kate arranged extensively for string and brass sections. Kate has worked as musical director in Clonmel for the long-running Stagecraft YouthTheatre. She is currently working on a new body of music which she hopes to release in 2023.

VALE is themoniker of Tipperary-born electronic songwriter and producer, Eoin Hally.  With emotionally stirring song writing and lush electronic, atmospheric production, Vale (Eoin Hally) excels at marrying ambient, cinematic tones with rock and pop sensibilities and conventions. Having spent the last decade living in Cork City, the Tipperary native recently returned home to Clonmel and experienced life in a studio of his own for the first time. From this point onwards, recording began and tracks formed.
