Free Entry 2016 presents


SINGER SONGWRITER SESSION – BOURKE’S BAR – 8:30pm – FREE ENTRY Facebook event Whelan’s Singer songwriter session ‘Song Cycle’ continues to offer a platform for local and non local acts to experiment, sing and share in the friendly informal setting of Bourke’s Bar at Whelan’s.Taking our cues from our favourite artists musings on the creative process (Van Dyke Parks lends us the title from his seminal 1967 opus) this night offers artists a fresh new stage to breath life into songs, experiment with ideas or simply just play for the sheer enjoyment of it. The Format of Song Cycle has developed a little since moving to Bourke’s. More of an impromptu session in the round than a stage and a line-up. Your host John Byrne helps to curate the evening along with performing some old standards. Song Cycle takes place in Bourke’s Bar at Whelan’s every Monday, admission is free and all are welcome to play.
