Lee Valley Enterprise Board are delighted to welcome musical duo Jim Murray & Seamus Begley back to the Riverside Park Hotel, Macroom on Friday 9th November. Macroom's own Jim Murray is one of Ireland’s finest guitarists and his formidable reputation has been established as a player of traditional music - both as a melody player and as an accompanist. Over the last decade, Jim has combined a wide range of music and influences to create a unique and exciting modern sound in guitar accompaniment bringing it to the ‘now’. Jim plays regularly as a member of Sharon Shannon’s band and has also recorded with Frankie Gavin, Mike McGoldrick, Altan, Mary Black and many other traditional musicians.

Accordion player and singer Séamus Begley is one of the most popular Irish traditional musicians, coming as he does from one of the most musically acclaimed Irish families. He plays with an energy that is alarming, bringing a frisky spontaneity to his box-playing, belting out jigs, slides and polkas with rapid sprays of reckless ornamentation before making a sudden key change into a bitter-sweet air, sung or played on the accordion. He has toured extensively with Jim Murray, Altan, Steve Cooney and Mary Black to name but a few.

Directed by Michael Scot, the production stars television favourite Mary McEvoy known for her role as Biddie in the long running RTE series GLENROE. Irish Actor and comedian Jon Kenny who was part of the Irish comic duo d’Unbelievables with Pat Shortt joins Mary to complete the cast. Kenny is also best known outside Ireland for appearing in the Channel 4 sitcom Father Ted. Together they play a myriad of characters in this hilarious and earthy dramatic comedy.
The play follows the efforts of Dicky Mick Dicky O Connor to make matches for the lonely and lovelorn. Keane, an avid observer of people and the cultures that bind and create their view of the world uses “The Matchmaker” as an exploration of rural loneliness.
Aware that generations of people became masters of their own destinies late in life, and only then began to look for companionship and love, once their duties as minder of aging parents were concluded or they had finally inherited or were the left-over brother or sister.
Using his inimitable way with words and his one sense of “devilment” and wit, Keane delves into the longings, hungers, fears and foibles of this collection of lonely county people and creates a marvellously colourful world, taking us back to a simpler time, when phones were few and far between and the only web was one left behind by spiders. The show is directed by Michael Scott.
Be sure to book early, a great night of comedy, laughter, and entertainment …not to be missed.

THE NUALAS CHRISTMAS GLAM SLAM
It’s Christmas time. There’s no need to be afraid. Or maybe there is….
In a world where Christmas is getting less Christmassy, The Nuala’s hit Macroom with a dangerously Christmassy show. Expect to be battered about the head with hilarious seasonal chat, expect to be boxed around the ears with scintillating vocal harmonies, and ultimately expect to be beaten to a pulp of Christmas cheer by Ireland’s sequined queens of musical comedy. Make The Nualas Christmas Glam Slam your big Christmas night out and you, too, could have the most dangerous Christmas ever!
