THE CROOKED ROAD is a musical and poetic journey through Irish history leading up to the Easter Rebellion of 1916. Lyrics from the earliest times are woven into the show, along with music from a lost world that evokes the many distinct and dramatic chapters in the history of Ireland. The journey begins with pre-Christian myth, and continues through the Golden Age of Irish Civilisation to the coming of the Vikings, the Normans, and the English. Relive the Flight of the Earls, the events of 1798, the time of the Fenians, The Famine, the trauma of exile, and the Easter Rising of 1916 as described by W.B. Yeats and epitomised by Cúchulainn, the hero of the tribe. For more information on The Crooked Road and Diarmuid Johnson, go to: http://www.diarmuidjohnson.net/the-crooked-road-2016.html

Since 1984, Mick Moloney, Robbie O'Connell, and Jimmy Keane have been delighting audiences with their unique blend of Irish music and song, both traditional and contemporary. An evening with this trio is an experience that covers much musical ground and is not easily forgotten. With each one regarded as the best in his field, the combination brings a great depth and range to their concerts. Virtuoso musicianship is underscored with humor, and a sense of history is tempered by the reality of today's social condition. Some of their songs will fill you with emotion, others will have you laughing outright; some of the melodies will haunt you for days, others will make you want to leap up dancing. However you react, one thing is certain, you will want more.
And don’t forget PCG’s monthly 1st Wednesday Singers Session; 1st Friday Traditional Music Session with a slow session hour for beginners; and, the 4th Friday Ceili Dance.
