Following their recent celebration of Joni’s birthday, Shadows and Light comprising of vocalist Maura Vambeck, guitarist Dave Mulligan and Paul Enright on keyboard, will play the Séamus Ennis Arts Centre on 8th December.

Located 22 miles north of Ireland's capital city of Dublin, the venue is named in honour of the late Irish musician, singer and music collector.

The show features songs and stories from Joni’s rich store of classics. The 8th of December marks the start of Ireland’s Christmas season - the River will surely get an airing. More information here.

GLOW is a light art festival which is organised by the GLOW Eindhoven foundation. GLOW can be described as an exhibition in the public space of Eindhoven of 35 famous national and international light artists. The light artworks are connected by a walking route.

Besides the light artworks and numerous side events there are also innovative, unique works of art that are created by young talents.

The year's theme is called 'Shadows & Light'. "Every picture has its shadows. And it has some source of light. Blindness, blindness and sight". (Joni Mitchell)

No light without shadows, no image without content. With this year’s theme GLOW 2018 searches for this duality. Effectively, it’s not only about the ultimate contrast between black and white, but also about much and little, inside and outside, restraint and abundance...light and shadow. Within the contradiction, the story is born; there’s no experience without contrast. ‘Shadows’ and ‘Light’ lacking, we would find ourselves in a grey landscape in which life evaporates.
