(Dave Monks)

Irish vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Dave Monks presents An Irish Party at Rhumbelow Tina’s Hotel in Kloof this coming weekend, offering an evening which is jam-packed with nostalgia and features the most popular sing-a-long and clap-along Irish songs of all time.

Monks’ proven repertoire of esteemed Irish classics mixed with a touch of the Blarney in his treasury of tales and humour, are always sure to get audiences’ hands clapping. The folky feel of the music is accentuated by his mastery of the fiddle, banjo, guitar, harmonica, tin whistle and vocals.

Of course, no Irish show would be complete without the good old faithfuls like Danny Boy, Galway Bay, Whiskey in the Jar, Paddy McGinty’s Goat, Delaney’s Donkey to name a few but “Ireland’s Call” introduces you to a whole new generation of Irish favourites plus a couple of brand new Irish songs composed by Monks.

Monks is a well-known and respected entertainer on the South African music scene. An established gig artist having “paid his dues” over the last many years, he has been extremely fortunate to have performed in almost every corner of South Africa as well as Ireland, England, South Korea, USA, Portugal, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Swaziland, and Abu Dhabi.

An Irish Party runs from May 3 to 5, 2019, with shows on Friday and Saturday at 20h00 and on Sunday at 14h00. (The theatre venue opens 60 minutes before show for drinks). This family show is suitable for all ages. Remember to wear something green!
