The Selkie
Gaoth Dobhair, Amharclann
3pm
€7/ – 5 tickets for €25

Legend has it if you hide a seal skin belonging to a Selkie she must stay with you forever, however if she finds it she will always return to the sea…

On a moonlight beach in Donegal a Fisherman finds a beautiful Selkie maiden dancing over the rocks, so begins a magical tale using storytelling, puppets, live theatre, music and voice.

This inventive, brand new bi-lingual production has been commissioned by Earagail Arts Festival and is a collaboration between Banyan Theatre Company, the Inishowen Gospel Choir, An Grianán Youth Theatre and Amharclann Ghaoth Dobhair Youth Theatre.

A much-loved and native Donegal tale sure to enchant the whole family.

The California Feetwarmers
Ballybofey, Balor Arts Centre
8pm – €10

The band, overwhelmed by new Irish fans – young and old alike – are renowned for an earthy depth of character that sets them apart from others who have followed that throwback path to New Orleans, circa 1920. Their boisterous on-stage antics are solidly underpinned by playing that is as close to the source as it can be. Based in Los Angeles, the band dusts down and re-works old classics, re-visiting material from The Blue Ridge Playboys, Scott Joplin, The Memphis Jugband and Emile Grimshaw’s Rag Pickers.
