17-17 December 2003


Tickets: 8.00

Recently returning from a tour of the U.S. Goodtime is Gearing up for the release of his second album “I’ll sing ’til the sun turns cold” (voltasounds) in the new year. GTJ will be performing a special “stripped down” set with accompanying musicians as part of the December gigs being held in the Project.
On the night, Goodtime will be performing some of this new album material along with some old ones (and maybe a Christmas song or two). Goodtime John live shows are full-on revues; quiet stripped-down moments, beautiful acoustic pop, employing rich folk nuances.
Also playing on the night will be the acclaimed Dublin Guitar Quartet. DGC was formed in 2000 by Brian Bolger, Patrick Brunnock, David Flynn and Redmond O’ Toole. The group concentrate exclusively on contemporary repertoire consisting of works for guitar quartet by composers such as Leo Brouwer and Nikita Koshkin, alongside their arrangements of works by Philip Glass, Steve Reich, Arvo Part, Henryk Gorecki and Kevin Volans. The quartet have also had works written for them by Irish composers such as Derek Ball, John McLachlan, Simon O’ Connor (Jimmy Cake) and Kevin Volans.
