Poetry & Music @ The Olive Tree

The Olive Tree

The Olive Tree Cafe presents, for Culture Night 2022, an evening of poetry and music. Come and listen and, if you are inclined, bring a poem to read! Either one you have written yourself or a poem you love or a poem your children love! Sligo based poet Mary Branley in collaboration with local folk band ‘GreenBird’ will be performing her poetry. GreenBird will also perform some of their folk songs with lyrics by poets such as Christina Rossetti, Percy Bysshe Shelly and even Shakespeare! Alt-folk with a hint of strangeness. Poet Eithne Hand, all the way from Wicklow reading from her new book ‘Fox Trousers’ and joining in with the musical fun. Wayne Frankham joins us as our dedicated host poet & MC. Expect words, music, suprise collaborations and a fun night for all! Wine/Coffee and an evening menu available at the Cafe. Burgers, Veggie Burgers, Nachos and Pies with mash.
