Dave Monks presents an evening of fun, party and above all sing-along Irish music titled Irish To The Core at the Rhumbelow Theatre.

South Africa’s own Irish minstrel has a proven repertoire of rousing Irish favourites and between songs, Dave delivers a touch of the blarney in his collection of Irish tales and jokes.

Dave was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, which gives more than a touch of real authenticity to this Irish music and humour. The folksy feel of the music is accentuated by his mastery of the fiddle, banjo, guitar, harmonica, tin whistle and vocals. To be sure, there’s nothing that lifts the spirits more than a rousing evening of sing-along, clap-along Irish music.

Performances take place on September 14 and 15 at 20h00. There are two performances on September 16: 14h00 and 18h30. The venue opens 90 minutes beforehand for a picnic dinner. Take along food picnic baskets and braais will be available.

Tickets R100 (less 25% pensioners and tables of eight or more). There is limited secure parking and booking is essential. A cash bar is available (no alcohol may be brought on to the premises). Rhumbelow Theatre is situated in Cunningham Avenue off Bartle Road.
