(Dave Monks)

Westville Country Club, in association with Rhumbelow Theatre, Westville Old Boys Hall at Westville Country Club presents South Africa’s very own Irish minstrel Dave Monks in an evening of fun, party and above all sing-along Irish music. Titled Irish to the Core, it presents a pre-St Patrick’s Day Party.

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. He was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, which gives more than a touch of real authenticity to this Irish music and humour.

The folky feel of the music is accentuated by Monks’ 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 will take place on March 1 at 14h30 and 19h00. The venue opens 90 minutes before show for picnic dinner.

Remember to wear something green!
