Soul Clap Hands & Sing
Poetry Ireland, 11 Parnell Square East, Dublin; 7pm; €10;
Another instalment in the inspired summer series of collaborative recitals from Poetry Ireland and the Irish Traditional Music Archive. The night sees poet, Mary O’Malley join forces with piper, Tommy Keane. Playing the Octopus is more than just a metaphor for how hard it is to play the pipes: it’s also the title of O’Malley’s most recent collection of poems. Clearly, poet and piper share much by way of an understanding of the intricacies of Keane’s chosen instrument. There’s a promise that they’ll wend their way through life’s many tentacled surprises tonight.

Friday, 29th June

An Góilín Singers Club
The Teachers Club, 36 Parnell Square, Dublin; 9.30pm; €3,

Songs about animals, plants and the odd, errant hero or two.
