This is a rare chance to catch one of Ireland's great singers, Niamh is an outstanding interpreter of traditional and contemporary songs, frequently compared with Dolores Keane and Cara Dillon in Ireland and June Tabor and Sandy Denny in the UK.  She  was described by the great Archie Fisher as "a once or twice in a generation singer". Graham is a virtuoso guitarist. When not accompanying Niamh he does solo guitar folk and jazz gigs. Check out their amazing back catalogue and get here early. Doors open at 7.   

Entrance is £12 tonight
