Spring Journey 2016
Quality Music in an Evocative Setting

Over the past five years, the Dublin Unitarian Church has become a much enjoyed concert venue. The word was put out to promoters while the church was fundraising for its pipe organ and the promoters keep booking the venue, something we at the church are very happy about. That fundraising work is now – thankfully – drawing to a close but people seem to continue to want to concerts here so, at least for the moment, we are happy to keep our doors open for live music.

In 2014, the Spring Journey concert season was started as a presentation of high quality music in a relaxed, enjoyable setting – all capped off by the satisfaction of raising money for this worthy cause. The musicians in that first season were not household names but they were more than worth hearing. The point was they made you want to come back and hear them again.

It was successful and the second season – which ran from February through May 2015 was even more so. We invite you to support our 2016 season by attending one or more of the concerts, or helping us spread the word in the media, online or by word of mouth.

All concerts at 8pm. Tickets €15 (on the door) and €12 (advance from the links below).

The last concert in the season is on Friday May 13th.

Friday 13th May – The Whileaways
Three powerful forces in Irish roots music in their own right, Noelie McDonnell, Nicola Joyce and Noriana Kennedy combine as The Whileaways to create a beautiful blend of harmonies, tradition and lyrics. Using traditional American folksong as a starting point, all three write and sing songs drawing on their own experience and the result is captivating.

Previous Concerts

Friday 11th March – John Spillane
John is a legend and recently toured to mark 33 years on the road. His songs have been covered by many Irish musicians such as Christy Moore, Sean Keane, Karan Casey, Pauline Scanlon, Mary Black, and many others but the real experience is to hear him sing the songs himself.

Friday 8th April – Truly DiVine & Josh Johnston
Irish pianist Josh Johnston has worked with Dutch singer Truly DiVine over the last three years building up a collection of rich, colourful songs made famous by screen sirens such as Marlene Dietrich, Doris Day and others. They are looking forward to launching their debut CD – Close Your Eyes – at this concert.
A preview of the album is here.
