(Dave Monks)

A Feast of Irish is coming up at Rhumbelow Theatre – and to be sure, South Africa’s very own Irish minstrel, Dave Monks presents an evening of fun, party and sing-along Irish music in a pre-St Patrick’s Day Party.

Born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, which gives more than a touch of real authenticity to this Irish music and humour, Dave Monks has a proven repertoire of rousing Irish favourites and between songs. He delivers a touch of the blarney in his collection of Irish tales and jokes. His folky 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.

Shows take place on March 9 at 20h00 and March 10 at 14h00 (venue opens 90 minutes before show for picnic dinner). Tickets R100 (less 25% for pensioners and tables of eight or more). Take along food picnic baskets and braais will be available. 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.

Booking is through Computicket or contact Roland on 031 205 7602 (h) or 082 499 8636, email or visit
