Open-Mic Tues 26th August 2017 at 9.00pm sharp!
Presents – Paula Ryan
Paula Ryan (www.paularyan.co) is an award-winning singer songwriter, hailing from Tipp. Paula plays regularly at venues and festivals not only in Ireland but also in UK, USA, France and Germany. Most recent appearances included a sell out show at the largest arts festival in the world – Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Paula’s original songs have received recognition in many prestigious song writing competitions: Pan Celtic Irish National Song Contest, Tipperary Peace Song Contest, Clonmel National Song Contest, Great American Song Contest and been broadcast on tv/radio in Ireland (Tipp Fm, Tipp Mid West FM, Kilkenny KCLR FM, Clare FM, Highland Radio, Donegal), BBC Radio Ulster, New Jersey Channel 10 TV , USA, Radio Rennes, France
According to Rose Rushe, highly respected Arts Editor of the Limerick Post, Paula’s songwriting comes from the “Joni Mitchell/ Joan Baez school of writing” with “an impressive series of instruments” (incl. Marimba, Guitar, Bazouki, Bodhran) used to compliment Paula’s “clear and sweet” vocal tones which also lend easily to gutsy up-tempo numbers.
With the “quality of the writing and performance on offer” from Paula, Irish Music Magazine reckons that “there there is nothing that will stop her” (as the title track from her new album “Let Me Fly” suggests) flying high artistically or “her music flying off the virtual shelves”. “Paula is such “a strong talent in writing and performing…”and (her) live performances are well “worth seeking out”.
All aspiring songwriters, musicians and singers are invited to attend and play in front of a live audience. All types of music and singers are welcome.
The evening will feature performers doing short sets of two or three songs. Also “Special Guest” slots where an established performer will perform a set. Host for the evening is songwriter Eugene Nolan. The Acoustic Club intends to become a regular feature of the live music scene in Limerick.
