Aoife Meade, our MA Music Therapy student, invites you to a night of song and soul. Sharing her original music with you alongside some poetry. With just herself and her guitar, she can’t wait to celebrate culture night with you. Aoife is a singer/songwriter hailing from Laois but nesting in Limerick. With inspiration coming from such artists as Tom Waits, Ella Fitzgerald and Lana Del Rey, she’s a lover of all things nostalgic. She blends jazzy tones with her love of storytelling. Showcasing a powerful voice, her stripped back set allows audiences to hear exactly where she’s coming from.

Students from our BA Irish Music, MA Irish Traditional Music Performance, BA Irish Dance programmes join forces to present a lively and eclectic programme of song, music and dance. Come and immerse yourself in a performance that will get your Culture Night off to an exhilarating start and support some of Ireland's best emerging musicians and dancers.
