2021-09-10 Emma Langford - Moat Theatre, Naas

Tonight, well tonight I was meant to be in Belfast to see King Kong Company as part of the Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival.  I was looking forward to it since last April.  Unfortunately, due to a mix of my own health issues and the latest Covid figures for Belfast, I thought it wise to pass my ticket on to some one else. So I did.

That left me with an empty Friday night to fill.  Fortunately, Emma Langford was due to play the Moat Theatre on the same night and, thanks to the kind folk in the theatre, I was invited along.

I've seen Emma perform on many occasions previously, so I went in to the gig with high hopes and I was not disappointed!  From Birdsong and You Are Not Mine (This Song Isn't About You, You Lying Bollix), to The Winding Way Down To Kells Bay and Goodbye Hawaii, all the crowd favourites were performed.  We were even treated to a beautiful version of The Cranberries classic, Linger.

All in all, another fantastic night of music and song in the Moat Theatre and I'm looking forward to more!

On to the photos now:

Interview with King Kong Company

Originally published 10/09/2013 on Chunk.ie So, there I was, wandering around the Electric Picnic wondering who I was going to watch next. One of the lads said he had heard good things about King Kong Company and that we should check them out, so off we headed to the Body and Soul Arena to do just that.  As I mentioned in my review of the Electric Picnic, the gig was epic.  I figured we just had to interview them here on CHUNK.ie, and here it is! First things first, congratulations on a storming gig at the Electric Picnic. It completely blew me away.  Was this your first Picnic experience? We’ve been to many Electric Picnics over the years but just as punters, and it’s always been a great festival, so it was a fantastic experience to play at its 10 year anniversary. King Kong Company is a rather interesting name for a band, where or how did you come up with it? The name is taken from the film Taxi Driver. If you look closely, Travis Bickle is wearing a badge which says King

2022-11-04 Mairead Carroll - Moat Theatre, Naas

Every now and then I have a choice of gigs to go to...  This night, I could have driven into Dublin to see Meryl Streek in the Workmans Club , or I could stay local and go see Mairead Carroll in the Moat Theatre in Naas. Well, it was a no brainer.  The weather was terrible and, well, I felt terrible too, so I figured I'd stay local. Mairead has played the Moat Theatre before, but always as support, never as the main attraction.  Tonight, would be her debut headline performance and she didn't let anyone down! I'm not quite sure how to describe here music.  It's not folk, it's not trad, it's not country or rock... It's. well, it's very light and soft and calming.  Mairead is a poet who, only relatively recently, has started putting her words to music. It's a very relaxing affair!  Her songs are very personal, and, at first listen, you might think them melancholy, but then you hear the joy and the love in them, and you start to see them for what they

2022-03-26 Buskers on Grafton Street, Dublin

I took a walk around Dublin today,  thought I'd check out the buskers on Grafton Street.   There's a fine history of busking in Dublin, acts like  Hothouse Flowers ,  The Frames ,  Rodrigo y Gabriela ,  Damien Rice ,  Paddy Casey ,  Kodaline  and a host of others all cut their teeth on and around Grafton Street.  It stands to reason that some of those busking today will be successful in the future! So, who did I get to see today?  Well, check out the photos below: Zoe Clarke Allie Sherlock Paul Jenkinson
