Damian Dempsey, Melbourne

With special guests Paddy McHugh & Ryan Mc Mullan

After multiple sell out shows across Australia in recent years, Damien Dempsey returns with his full band in November to play Sydney Irish Festival as well as some headline shows.
Dempsey’s voice is all Dublin, yet wholly distinctive.  It’s almost clichéd to say it, but he is part of a rich bloodline of Irish singers from Luke Kelly to Ronnie Drew, Christy Moore to Andy Irvine.  To describe Damien Dempsey’s music to someone who hasn’t yet been exposed to it would be to take some reggae, fuse it with traditional Irish music, add in rock and folk and put it all through a grounded working class worldly aware yet caring consciousness, and you’re some bit of the way there.

Holy Cow! A Celebration of Joyce - Melbourne

 Holy Cow! James Joyce Slaughters the Sacred Cows of English Literature

Event Times: 7.30 Wed - Friday; 4pm and 8pm Saturday (Bloomsday); 3pm and 6pm Sunday

An adaptation for theatre of James Joyce's Oxen of the Sun which parodies the entire English Literary Tradition. The play also riffs on childbirth and fertility. It’s as far from political correctness as one can get, and sassier than what you’d hear just about anywhere else in the Classics!

"No Petty People": The Making of Literary Ireland

Professor Ronan McDonald delivers the Faculty of Arts Dean’s Lecture: ‘No Petty People’: The Making of Literary Ireland 

For a small country, Ireland has an immense literary heritage and international reputation. This lecture considers some political, social and cultural reasons why this is so. It reflects on the anomalous conditions in which Ireland grappled with modernity in the aftermath of the Great Famine. It assesses the cultural nationalism that led to the extraordinary flowering of the Irish Literary Revival, led by W.B. Yeats, not only in national terms but also enmeshed within wider European intellectual and cultural agendas.  Free entry.
