Brownbread Mixtape at Electric Picnic 2016


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.

the brownbread mixtape – Feb 27th – “Chillin’ like Bob Dylan”


Join us on Wed, Feb 27th upstairs in the Stag’s Head for our eclectic monthly spoken word, music and comedy show. [Facebook event here | Google+ event here ] The theme of the night is “Chillin’ like Bob Dylan”, so you can expect much relaxing and Dylan-esque balladry. Resident MC Kalle Ryan will be in place to keep the spirits high and the energy up, while resident sound man and sidekick Enda Roche will deliver the deadly decibels.

For an absolute bargain of 5 EURO you will get to hear some of the very best musicians and poets working in Ireland today! And, as if that wasn’t enough, our resident sketch comedy troupe will have some fresh, new radio style sketches for your pleasure. Plus you will receive a delicious complimentary Jameson & Ginger Ale in return for walking in the door and parting with that fiver. Or just a Ginger Ale if you are of the non-alcohol drinking persuasion. Amazing!

Pay you fiver on the door. No advance ticket sales. Guaranteed fun. Spread the word!
