logo

We are back at the Electric Picnic once again and will be gracing The Word stage at Mindfield with our fun-filled shows on both Saturday 3rd Sept and Sunday 4th. Joining us will be some of the finest wordsmiths this country has to offer, former All Ireland Slam Poetry champion John Cummins, Appalachian poet extraordinaire Erin Fornoff, and tour-de-force storyteller Paul Timoney. Also gracing the stage will be legendary singer songwriter, activist and arts curator Gary Dunne, who will be sharing some of his finely crafted songs. We will also have some of our trademark comedy, singalong moments and the alternative national anthem. All ably kept bubbling along by our resident songmeister Enda Roche and MC extraordinaire Kalle Ryan. Stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter for more details on stage times as soon as we have them.

This month’s brownbread mixtape show was really special – some truly remarkable performances mixed with that indescribable special magic that happens in that room. BBC Radio Ulster were down to record the show for a spoken word documentary for one of their programmes, so we cut together some cool performances from the night to share with them. And so we wanted to share them with you too. So, without further ado, here are a selection of some of the most special moments in a night filled with dozens of them. And if you like what you hear, post them to your Facebook, your Twitter, your Google+ and elsewhere. It helps the artists, it helps the community and it makes everything cooler. Enjoy!
