the brownbread mixtape Irish performance poetry audio showcase – Commissioned by Penduline Press, USA

penduline logo

We are delighted and honoured to let you know about a special audio broadcast on performance poetry in Ireland that we recently put together for a special Irish issue of Penduline Press, a literary journal based in Portland, Oregon, USA. Our inimitable host Kalle Ryan was commissioned by guest editor Dave Lordan, to put together an audio selection of the most interesting and engaging contemporary performance poets in Ireland and the end result, an hour long broadcast, can be found at the soundcloud link below. There are, of course, many other brilliant performance poets across this country, but we simply didnt have space or existing audio recordings to include them all in this showcase.

We are very proud of it and immensely honoured to have had so many gifted poets grace our stage over the last few years.  We hope that you take a moment to listen to the broadcast and that you enjoy it. Please feel free to share it with any poetry and spoken word fans you may know. We also encourage you to read the entire current issue of Penduline which features a wide selection of great contemporary Irish writing. Enjoy!

“[the brownbread mixtape] is a very professionally run cabaret and it has featured many of the most engaging and entertaining live arts practitioners in the country. Kalle is an excellent host and curator, a fact proven by the popularity of the monthly event. Everybody wants a gig at The Brownbread Mixtape. [ … ] Kalle probably has the closest to an overview of performance poetry in Ireland and he was the obvious choice to make a showcase selection for Penduline.” – Dave Lordan, Guest Editor, Penduline

a documentary about performance poetry in Dublin

Last year Danny Carroll (2XM) put together the first ever documentary about the current performance poetry scene that is brewing and fizzing here in bubblin’ Dublin. It is now available for the first time online and features lengthy excerpts from the brownbread mixtape, as well as an interview with our resident MC and house poet Kalle Ryan. A lovely snapshot of a moment in time and while much has changed even since it was made (The Glor Sessions no longer exists) , it features some great performances and interviews with many of Dublin’s leading performers, all of whom are past performers at the brownbread mixtape (incl. Fergus Costello, Stephen James Smith, Abby Oliveira, Raven, CAH-44 and Colm Keegan) . Yeah, POETRY!

best of the brownbread mixtape 2011 – Poetry & Spoken Word

It was a remarkable year for poetry, prose and spoken word performance at the brownbread mixtape. Once again we were proud to showcase many of the incredibly talented writers and performers based in Ireland. Live poetry and prose can be a tricky thing to convince others about, but time and again we heard from audience members how much they loved the spoken word performers at our shows. Alas we have not been able to upload all of the different performers from this year, so you will have to listen to our podcast in 2012 to catch up on the other literary nuggets. For now, take a moment and absorb the wonderful words woven by these masters of the craft. Spread the word, post the links, update your social networks, make the words go viral. So, without further ado, in no particular order, here are some of the best spoken word acts of 2011…

————————————————————————————————————————–

1. Ireland is – Colm Keegan

The year kicked off with a typically powerful set by Colm Keegan, whose poem “Ireland Is” was written for a previous brownbread mixtape. It captures the zeitgeist perfectly and will go down as one of the best documents of this time we are living through.

[For more info: Uiscebot’s Blog]

————————————————————————————————————————–

2. High John – Raven

Raven hails originally from California but has been a Dublin local for some time now. In addition to being a well-known powerhouse poet, he co-runs the highly regarded Tongue Box poetry session every month in The Cobblestone. His poems are highly crafted pieces, expertly delivered.

[For more info: myspace.com/nomanifesto]

————————————————————————————————————————–

3. Raphymn – Karl Parkinson

Karl has a real shamanic spirit, as he channels his own life experiences with his love for rhythm and rhyme that harkens to modern day hip-hop performers like Jay-Z and Snoop Dogg. His poems are chronicles or the everyday and the extraordinary . This recording is from a studio session for an album to accompany the Culture Ireland Irish poetry showcase at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe in New York City where Karl performed along with Kalle Ryan, Sarah Maria Griffin, Stephen James Smith and Dave Lordan.

[For more info: myspace.com/karlparkinsonpoet]

————————————————————————————————————————–

4. Hymn To The Reckless – Erin Fornoff

Erin is a poet from the mountains of North Carolina who, luckily for us, lives in Ireland now. Her emotionally resonant, lyrically deft poems have been a smash hit at our shows. Erin knocked us out with her poems at our Electric Picnic show, as well as our showcase at Mindfield in Merrion Square earlier this year, but this performance of her masterful poem “Hymn To The Reckless” from our March gig is a barnstormer. It’s hard to believe she has only been performing her own material for about a year. Already one of the best y’all.

[For more: Erin performs a Shel Silverstein poem]

————————————————————————————————————————–

5. Crash – Sarah Maria Griffin

Sarah’s poetry has wonderful whirling blends of tenderness, electricity, fight and foolhardiness. Her future is limitless, her ideas are clearly brimming and the coming years will surely see her grow in stature as a writer. Earlier this year she published her first collection of poems entitled “Follies” which was extremely well received. This session was recorded for the same aforementioned Culture Ireland showcase CD and captures one of Sarah’s typically confessional and captivating poems.

[For more info: wordfury.blogspot.com ]

————————————————————————————————————————–

6. Manhattan – Kalle Ryan

As MC of the brownbread mixtape, I don’t always get a chance to perform my poems and certainly not the more “serious” ones. This was a poem that I have held dear to my heart and it has been written and rewritten several times since my experience of September 11th 2001. I was really proud to be able to perform it in my second home of New York City in April of this year on an emotional night at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe.

[For more info: http://kalleryan.bandcamp.com/]

7. The Death of the Dollar – Abby Oliveira

Abby is, quite simply, a hypnotic presence on stage. It is n surprise she has wowed audiences around the globe with her mesmerising poems and performances. She often performs as part of The Poetry Chicks on the festival circuit, but on this occasion we were treated to a special solo performance. Poems that pack power, politics, passion and poesy all in one.

[For more info: Abby Oliveira – Facebook Artist Page]

————————————————————————————————————————–

8. The Lake Isle of Innisfree – Smith & Reilly

Stephen James Smith is a great performance poet. Enda Reilly is a great singer and songwriter. Together they are electrifying. Stephen and Enda have recently embarked on a project to record original works, as well as classic Irish poems in a genre they call spoken word sung verse. There is nothing quite like it currently being performed. The marriage of the lilting musical song with the potent poetic delivery makes for a unique experience. In this performance from our show at the Imagine Festival in Waterford, you will hear W.B. Yeats exquisite poem in a way unlike any before. Their album “Arise and Go” is available on iTunes and select record shops nationwide. Buy it. It’s great.

[For more info: facebook.com/SmithandReilly]

————————————————————————————————————————–

9. Hair Loss and Baldness – Fergus Costello

Fergus is the current Munster Slam Champion. He is also a dead ringer for Yul Brynner. In addition he is a hysterically funny and multi-talented performer. A buzzing dynamo of energy and ideas, Fergus is one of our favourite poets and favourite people. He orbits planets you and I could only dream of.

[For more of Fergus: Tell Me Lies by Fergus Costello]

————————————————————————————————————————–

10. Will You Tell Her? – Fabian Montes

Every month, magical things happen at the brownbread mixtape, but every now and again spectacularly mystical things happen like this. Fabian Montes, an LA based poet and former gang member, was in attendance at our Twisted Pepper show and we were lucky enough to entice him to the stage to speak about his remarkable life’s journey and to hear a reading of one of his poems. A slice of a life and a world that was a real honour to hear. Our thanks to him for sharing and best wishes to him in his important work with Homeboy Industries.

[For more info: Homeboy Industries]

11.Cheek, Cheek, Chin and Nose – Colm Keegan

As the year began with a magnetic performance by Colm Keegan, it seems fitting that we closed it with another. This performance of a truly remarkable poem is the best we have ever seen Colm. The room was stunned into silence and hung on every word. Rightly so.

————————————————————————————————————————–

It really was an exceptional year for poetry and spoken word, with some of the strongest, most powerful performances we have seen yet. Please check out our YouTube channel for loads of other brilliant spoken word performances from this year and last year at the brownbread mixtape. On a personal note, it was a very special year as myself (Kalle Ryan) and former brownbread mixtape performers Stephen James Smith and Colm Keegan wrote and performed an ABSOLUT Fringe spoken word show entitled “Three Men Talking About Things They Kinda Know About”. The show, directed by Sarah Brennan, played to a week fo full houses and rave reviews (including a 4 star review in The Irish Times), culminating in an award nomination in the category of “Bewley’s Café Theatre ‘Little Gem’ Award”. It was a huge triumph for us as poets &  friends and we believe that it took the Irish performance poetry scene to a new audience and in a new hopeful direction. We hope to revive it for a tour of Ireland in the spring of 2012. Below is an audio trailer for the show and you can find out more at threementalking.wordpress.com

brilliant brownbread birthday celebrations!

Thanks to every one of you who came to our show last night and joined us in our second birthday festivities. It has been a remarkable couple of years with an astonishing array of performers of the very highest calibre. But the one thing that has set us apart from every other night in this city is you, the audience. Your generosity of spirit and pure passion & warmth are unparalleled. (Plus your stories are pretty hilarious too) It is the electricity and energy in that room every month that makes us want to keep it going.

(AWLF  – The Guilty Folk :: Written specifically about the brownbread mixtape audience)

————————————————————————————————————————————–

When we began this wonderful night two years ago, we set out to simply create an event that we would love to see ourselves. Our central philosophy has remained unchanged since day one. The show must expose people to great new artists & art forms, to be accessible to anyone and to always be of a consistently high artistic standard. Last night is proof positive that we have achieved that and more.

Thank you to everyone who has attended the brownbread mixtape over the last two years. Thanks to all of you for spreading the word and supporting live music, live poetry and live comedy in Dublin city. It is a pleasure to do the show every month and thanks to your support we have even been able to bring the show to the Imagine Festival in Waterford, the Mindfield Festival in Dublin, the Trash Culture Revue in Cork, The Flat Lake Festival in Monaghan and several other venues. We have loads of really exciting stuff coming up later this year, so please stay connected to us here and on our Facebook page and YouTube channel for updates. We will also post up the film of last night’s event once the brilliant gang at Storymap Dublin have completed it. We are really excited about it!

So, we are taking a well earned break for the month of July to recharge our artistic and spiritual batteries, but we will return in August with bucketfuls of brilliance and zen for another fresh slice of brown bread. So, we wish you all a happy summer holiday and, you never know, there might be a few blog posts on here between now and then to keep you topped up with artistic goodness.

Kalle & Enda

This month’s show is on June 29th and we will be celebrating our second birthday! The theme is “DRINKING” so join us for several beverages!

the brownbread mixtape is on Wed, June 29th at 8.30pm, upstairs in the Stag’s Head. the theme for this month is “DRINKING” [Facebook event page here]

It’s our second birthday! So come along and join us for a celebratory drink! We plan on having a film crew in to document the evening, so anyone on a witness protection programme may want to reconsider coming along. The rest of you are very welcome though!

resident MC and drinker Kalle Ryan will be in place again to host proceedings and wave his applause sign. resident sound man and fellow drinker Enda Roche will also be in the corner co-hosting and raising the decibels.

The following outstanding performers will be on the lineup:

MUSIC :

Marc O’Reilly |

Marc O’Reilly’s roots may lie in Waterford and France, but his sound rests somewhere between the American-influenced folk blues of Peter Green and contemporaries such as Ray LaMontagne and Gomez. Following stints in different alt/rock bands, Marc began to make his mark in 2010 as a solo performer, playing at last summer’s Electric Picnic festival and supporting fellow Irish songwriters including David Kitt. Marc’s musical journey has seen him play across different continents following gigs in the US and Australia, but he is back based in Ireland for the release of his debut album “My Friend Marx” and the brownbread mixtape is delighted to welcome him to the stage.

“. . . a remarkable debut” – Hot Press

The Guilty Folk |

The Guilty Folk are Aidan Comerford and Sarah Williams, two people who get sexually-excited by the sound of applause. In reciprocation they will try to make you laugh and sing-a-long with their big fat songs about sex and love. If you’re extra-lucky, you may even get to hear them with Neil “Lovechild” Dexter on double bass. Like most acts these days, their happiness is directly proportional to the amount of people who click “like” on their Facebook page on any given day. the brownbread mixtape is only delerious with excitement to welcome them back and feels like a proud parent in their life story but we will leave them to tell that tale on the night. Oh the intrigue.

SPOKEN WORD:

Abby Oliveira |

Abby is a writer and performer. She has co-written 2 performance poetry shows with the Poetry Chicks. She was a finalist in the All Ireland and Glastonbury poetry slams (2009/10), as well as a finalist in the BBC Radio4 Poetry Slam (2009). Her poems have been published in various magazines, books and journals, she was a compere of the Poetry and Words venue at Glastonbury 2010, and has appeared at Electric Picnic, The Flat Lake Festival, Waterford Writer’s Weekend, The Forge at Gort festival, Out to Lunch festival and countless others. She also has extensive experience as a creative writing facilitator and has worked with children and adults of all ages in community and other capacities. She also happens to be one of the very best poets currently performing in Ireland and the brownbread mixtape is honoured, giddy and thrilled to welcome her to the stage.

Brian Conaghan |

Brian was co-founder of successful Glasgow Theatre Company, Vanishing Point, and has had his plays performed throughout the UK. In 2006 Brian completed a Master of Letters in Creative Writing from the University of Glasgow where he managed to stumble through the last of his three novels, The Boy Who Made it Rain, which he will read from tonight. As well as reading from his recently published novel, Brian will read a couple of his pitch perfect poems. Brian Conaghan is a talented bastard and we love talented bastards at the brownbread mixtape.

SKETCH COMEDY

The Brownbread Players |

Our very own hilarious sketch troupe will perform brand new skits and sketches on the theme of the night. The Brownbread Players for this month’s show are Sean McDonagh, Gus McDonagh, Eva Bartley and Kalle Ryan (with guest appearances by other McDonaghs).

OTHER COOL STUFF

Barring any technical hitches, we will be broadcasting LIVE ON D’INTERNET

We will be having our monthly RAFFLE with highy desirable and coveted prizes

And you can expect lots of surprises and silliness

It would be a pleasure to see you all there!

Hear ye, hear ye! The Brownbread Players will perform funny sketches at the Flat Lake Festival!

Festival season has begun and we are proud to announce that The Brownbread Players will be performing a selection of their weirdest, wildest and funniest sketches at the Flat Lake Festival in Monaghan on the June bank holiday weekend. It is a delightful little literary, artistic festival with all kinds of oddities abounding. In fact, attending the festival feels a lot like being in a really good episode of Father Ted. And if last year’s festival is anything to go by, we expect a charming and inspiring mix of ideas and lunacy.

The Brownbread Players will be performing in The Gonzo Theatre tent curated by the mercurial Phil Doherty, which will also feature fantastic performers like The Rubberbandits, The Gombeens, Jinx Lennon, Ghost Train Willy and many others. Other stages will be hosting top writers like Irish legend John Banville and American satirist supreme Joe Queenan, as well as mellifluous music by Harry Bird and the Rubber Wellies and The Blood Red Mountain Band. Some of the very best spoken word and poetry performers in the country will also be performing, including The Poetry Chicks, Dave Lordan and Stephen James Smith. In other words, a truly stellar set of performers alongside a whole host of other cool events and attractions. [Check out the loopy official Flat Lake Festival website here]

We are really looking forward to it and we really hope you can make it along. It is one of the most mellow, warm and good natured festivals we have ever been to and they really deserve your support. Weekend tickets are a steal and can be purchased online at the following digital emporium> [Flat Lake Tickets Available Here ]

See you  all there!
