This month’s Friday Night Social returns to The Model this Friday July 25th from 5 – 8pm. This month, it runs during the Sligo Jazz Summer School and Festival, and as a result we’ve teamed up to provide a couple of jazz themed events this Friday.
Spike Sligo and Sligo Jazz Festival have teamed up to present Barry Cullen in a monologue based on Spike Milligan’s own thoughts on music. The show is devised and edited by Jazz writer Stephen Graham (BBC radio 3 www.marlbank.net). Stephen will also present a selection of the best Jazz scenes in the movies.
To round the evening off we celebrate the life and work of the late Dermot Healy. We have asked some local faces from Sligo’s cultural scene to share their favourite pieces from Healy’s repertoire, including Colin Gillen, John Carty and Padraic Meehan.
We’ll also have our regular house DJs and great food from The Model Cafe.
