There isn’t an artist quite like Julie Feeney at work in Ireland today.
Julie is a multi-award winning singer-composer and is about to release her third album Clocks on November 16th in The Source Arts Centre, Thurles.
Julie’s music has been described as eccentric grounded and vulnerable. She is unquestionably original. As part of a nationwide tour Julie will perform with ten different choirs in ten different towns across Ireland.
The Source Arts Centre is delighted to have Julie perform on stage the night of her album launch alongside the Cashel Community School Choir.
Julie has arranged unique choral scores for ten of her songs and each choir will perform a selection from Love is a Tricky Thing, Impossibly Beautiful and Grace amongst others.
Previously Julie worked full-time as a professional choral singer and performed and recorded around the world with numerous choirs including the National Chamber Choir of Ireland, Anuna, Riverdance and the BBC singers.
It is yet to be revealed how the choir will form part of the show, but if you join us on the night you will find out! This promises to be a very novel and beautiful event, definitely one to mark in the diary.
The tour is commissioned by Strollers Touring Network in partnership with Julie’s record label, Mittens. The Source Arts Centre is a member of Strollers Touring Network.

Michael McSwiney - All At Sea
Michael McSwiney returns to The Source Arts Centre Gallery to give a talk about his work and its inspiration on Wednesday, October 24th at 7.30pm. This would be a great opportunity for all budding artists and for those who appreciate art to meet Michael.
Michael McSwiney’s paintings portray a world of abandoned, often threatening panoramas of land and sea. The influence of colour and atmospherics is from living so close to the Atlantic Ocean.
A sense of elusiveness is central to these mood-orientated images, where through alienating colours and strong atmospheric effects, these paintings portray an unnerving picture of nature. Symbolically significant materials such as tar, pigment and earth has been worked into the paintings.
Michael McSwiney’s All At Sea exhibition has been extended to October 30th as part of the Thurles Halloween Arts Festival from 10am to 5pm and later on performance evenings during Box Office hours.
Even in the air the chase is on!
On Saturday, October 27th the Source Arts Centre and the Thurles Halloween Festival presents Fidget Feet’s Catch Me.
Red Riding Hood takes flight in this classic fairy tail with an aerial circus spin.
From the company that brought you A Fairies’ Tail and Snow Queen, Catch Me is suitable for children and adults aged eight years and over. Come and watch this thrilling story being re-told as Red Riding Hood and the Wolf swing high above the audience in a forest of over 250 metres of rope.
Full of Fidget Feet’s trademark playfulness, Catch Me is a stunning mix of aerial feats and theatre. Using an original score and visual projections that are mixed like a painting and come alive around the performers, no two shows can ever be the same.
A pint-sized Cirque du Soleil originating from Donegal. Fidget Feet Aerial Dance Theatre is an internationally renowned company that is one of Ireland’s own.
Tickets are priced at E15 (E8 concession) and E35 for a family (two adults and two children). The show has a running time of sixty minutes and takes place on October 27th at 7.30pm.
For bookings please visit thesourceartscentre.ie or call the box office on 0504 90204 or why not check out fidgetfeet.ie.
