Past The End

The Fumbally Cafe is the place to be on December 16th, where a stunning lineup get together for Past The End, a musical fundraiser for Women’s Aid. The organisers tell us that the name is a nod to The End is Nigh, an epic night in 2012, when singer Lisa Hannigan and others played to a sweet Christmas gang to mark the end of the Mayan Calendar and of all existence. (Editor’s note –  some of us are still here.)

Performers on the night include Brian Mooney’s band The Next New Low, featuring Sean Coleman, Daniel Luke Smith, and James Smith. There will also be a trio performance with Mary Barnecutt, Sean Mac Erlaine and Mathew Nolan, while singer songwriter Laura Ann Brady will be conjuring up sounds that invoke memories and stir the heart and soul.  Expect to see a few surprise guests dropping by too.

Obviously the aim is to raise as much as possible for a great cause. See you there!

Tickets are €15 plus booking fees and VAT. All proceeds from the night will go to Women’s Aid.

*Note: The Bar will be open, but food will not be available.


About The Performers…

The Next New Low

Everything is nearly always falling apart when the next new low play, but somehow the well- crafted songs save us and we all leave with a comfortable glow. Featuring Brian Mooney, Sean Coleman, Daniel Luke Smith, and James Smith.

Seán’s work is genre agnostic and readily intersects folk, free improvisation, jazz and traditional music.

Matthew Nolan is a Dublin based musician, composer, academic and curator. Since 2015, he has produced new work in collaboration with some of the finest musicians around, both Irish and international. He has worked on commissions from a range of prestigious performing arts institutions, including: National Gallery, BAM and the Film Society at Lincoln Centre in New York, The National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., Kilkenny Arts Festival, Bram Stoker Festival and the St Patrick’s Festival.

Laura Ann Brady

Laura Ann Brady is an alternative folk artist and drama therapist from Dublin. She experiments with folk and Irish traditional songs in her work and this informs her own process of song writing. Laura plays various instruments including autoharp and piano and enjoys the ritual of layering vocals and sounds that invoke memories and stir the heart and soul.
