Bond with your child as you play, sing, dance (no talent required!), and giggle together. Your child will learn and grow through activities that stimulate brain growth, build motor skills, enhance social-emotional development, and much more.

Kindermusik is the world’s most trusted music movement program for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and young children. 

Digital home material: 
Music downloads: All of the songs, rhymes, stories and sounds from class are easy to download and add to your music collection.  Monthly literature book is included in e-book format, with pages you can turn yourself, and a page-by-page audio read-aloud that you can turn on or off.  Activity buttons take you to a variety of different activity types, including dance and movement instructions, fingerplay demonstrations and instructions, together-in-the-kitchen activities, music time, listening games, vocal play activities, video field trips, find-it/count-it style activities, ideas for pretend play, and more.

A Few Good Men

presented by Keegan Theatre Company

The trial of two Marines for complicity in the death of a fellow Marine at Guantanamo Bay sizzles on stage.

The Navy lawyer, a callow young man more interested in softball games than the case, expects a plea bargain and a cover up of what really happened. Prodded by a female member of his defence team, the lawyer eventually makes a valiant effort to defend his clients and, in so doing, puts the military mentality and the Marine code of honour on trial.

The Poetry Collective

present the MUXZ SESSIONZ

The Poetry Collective (previously The Three Legged Stool Poets) are a collective of poets living and performing in Ireland’s Midwest based in and around Ennis. They have been writing, publishing, recording, filming and performing poetry for 15 years and have produced impressive first collections of poetry such as’ Spirit Store’ by Arthur Watson, ‘Image and Likeness’ by Brian Mooney, ‘Voices of Clare’ by a selection of Clare Poets, ’Reality the Graveyard of Dreams’ by Brendan O Byrne, ‘Parting’ by Patrick Stack as well as Poetry Broadsheets, Calendars and Pamphlets.

In a new and challenging development the poetz, friends and audience will be working together in a more dynamic manner, using structured and partially rehearsed improvisations to investigate and express some fundamental human experiences.  They like to call these events a MUXZ. Sounds sexy like fluxz, tastes like bixz, and looks like mixz! As Poetz we seem endlessly compelled to give things names (sonnet, villanelle, haiku, Limerick etc )so we thought we’d better give this ‘form’ a name for something nameless and essentially indefinable until you’ve participated soooo…Come and experienze it.

These performances will represent spontaneous, improvised poetic explorations of universal themes involving combinations of sound, movement, music, art, costume and the spoken word….a MUXZ.

EVA: Ennis Voices for Autism

Information & Film night with speaker

Duration: 74mins

Mission To Lars is an uplifting and sweetly inspirational documentary, and is as much a story of siblings getting to know each other again as it is about the thrust of the ‘mission’…a plan to get 40 year-old Brit Tom, who suffers from debilitating Fragile X syndrome, to meet his hero, Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich at a concert in the US. 

Aware that they are not as close to their brother as they once were, journalist Kate Spicer and her filmmaker brother Will conclude that a road trip to the US with a plan to get Tom to meet Lars would be the perfect way to bring them all together.

A meeting with an American expert on Fragile X helps Kate and Will – she tells them that Tom finds the loud music of a concert hard to deal with – and as they repair their fractured family relationships and start to have fun, so to Tom agrees to the possibility of a meet with Lars. The deal is sealed when he wears Will’s recording headphones, enabling him to deal with the noise and engage with proceedings in his own way.

The peripheral interviews with the extended Spicer family are as compelling as the central quest; this is a film with rare honesty and nuance in a field that frequently feels queasy.

In Acting Shakespeare

presented by Pemberley Productions and The Lime Tree Theatre

Written by and Starring James DeVita
Freely adapted from Sir Ian McKellen’s “Acting Shakespeare”

On tour from the USA and direct from Off-Broadway comes the funny, touching and uplifting story of one man’s discovery of Shakespeare, acting and language.  Based on Sir Ian McKellen’s “Performing Shakespeare” James De Vita tells his own story of a young fisherman searching for a new career.

James DeVita’s fun, fervent tribute to his journey with the world's greatest poet deftly weaves Shakespeare’s life with reminiscences of James’ own days on a Long Island fishing boat (and nights as a classical actor).

The Fureys

The Fureys have been entertaining audiences worldwide for 36 years, audiences that have included former Australian Prime Minister John Howard, Former Irish President Mary McAleese and the late Pope John Paul while Tony Blair has publicly stated his favourite peace song of all time is the Fureys “Green Fields of France”. Recently Ireland President Michael D Higgins attended their concert in Dublin’s National Concert Hall.

The Fureys are responsible for some of the most stirring music ever to capture the public imagination. Their folk based music has received standing ovations in some of the biggest concert halls of the world and they credit their musical ability to their parents, Ted and Nora, who were well known musicians themselves. They encouraged their sons to play music from a very early age and there was live traditional music in their house almost nightly.

Their emotive songs stir many emotions….tears and laughter, sadness and joy.

A Fureys concert is always a night to remember.

Mick Flannery & Band

The Cork singer songwriter makes a much anticipated return to glór.  Flannery’s songs usher us into a world which is by times emotional, romantic, dark, insightful and hopeful.

Evening Train, White Lies and especially 2012’s best-selling and critically acclaimed number one album Red to Blue had their advocates and champions. They were significant staging posts along the road for the songwriter from Blarney, signs that he was finding a unique voice and vision, signs that he was finding his feet as he was finding an audience.

We can now consider the apprenticeship to be over. Hi new album By the Rule is the work of a confident, assured songwriter, someone who knows how to turn a list of nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs into graceful, minor-key pen-pictures and poetry which will resonate with the listener.

Grease

presented by The Lions Club Ennis

The Lions Club Ennis presents a fundraising evening with food [hot dogs, burgers, pulled pork] followed by a screening of Grease starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John and all proceeds go to Lions Club of Ennis charities.  A wonderful night of entertainment promised. 

The film adaptation of Grease is the zippy smash hit translation from the Broadway musical tribute to the fabulous 1950s.  As a new school year begins, wholesome Australian exchange student Sandy (pop star Olivia Newton-John) and duck-tailed, leather-jacketed Danny (John Travolta) parlay their summertime romance into an on-and-off attraction that may or may not cross clique lines. Sandy seriously cramps Danny's style, so he dumps her. In response, Sandy begins dating a wholesome athlete, but, as a hedge, she also joins the gum-chewin', tough-talkin' clique known as the Pink Ladies. One of the most beloved musicals of all time, the popular soundtrack includes “You're the One that I Want," "Hopelessly Devoted to You," "Sandy," "Summer Nights," and the title tune.

Come dressed as Danny, Sandy or your own T-Birds and Pink Ladies crew!! Prize for the best costume on the night.

The Man in the Woman’s Shoes

A one man show written and performed by Mikel Murfi and presented by Loco and Reckless Productions

It’s October 1978. Pope John Paul the First is not long dead, autumn is closing in and Pat Farnon has ‘some business’ to do in town. The story follows  Pat Farnon as he walks the 5 miles from his wee white cottage to town and back again and the marvels that he meets along the way. It’s a charming encounter - an ageing man still with a boundless enthusiasm for life. Hilariously funny, tender and at times downright daft. 

  • Shortlisted for the Irish Times theatre Awards 2013 in the category of Best New Play.

  • It Won the Stewart Parker/ BBC Northern Ireland Radio Drama Award 2013.

Nathan Carter

A fully seated concert performance

Nathan spent his childhood years in Liverpool, England, and grew up in a family with strong Irish roots, his folks originating from Newry in County Down. It seems like Nathan was just born to perform, because even at the tender age of four, he began to learn to play the accordion, and in a few short years he had become a head chorister in the Liverpool boys choir, touring the world, and he has even sang for the Pope in Rome.

Trips to Ireland to compete in Fleadh Ceoils became a regular feature of young Nathan's life during his early teens, resulting in All Ireland medals for solo singing , and in accordion, all at just 12 years of age. Nathan soon became a member of the Liverpool Ceili band, playing piano accordion and piano,and in no time at all Nathan had began playing solo gigs around Liverpool and London and playing occasional shows in Ireland.

Nathan is now just over three years on the road with his band, and has recorded five albums and a two DVDs. `Wagon Wheel`, the single taken from the album of the same name has become a huge hit for Nathan, with over a million hits on YouTube and the wheels continue to roll for this special song, which can now be heard in clubs, discos, and dancehalls alike and on all major National Irish radio stations.

Celebrating outstanding contribution to traditional Music & Art in County Clare

Following on from the wonderful Muiris Ó Rócháin Tribute event in 2013 glór is delighted to announce the first annual awards event celebrating the extraordinary talent of music and art in County Clare.  This prestigious annual award, named after Clare’s cultural ambassador and visionary, Muiris Ó Rocháin, is sponsored by glór and developed in partnership with Dr. Tim Collins who is an adviser to glór and coordinated the original concert in 2013.

This award for Outstanding Contribution to Traditional Music in County Clare will be presented to the recipients during a star-studded concert. It is an acknowledgement of the wealth of professional & semi-professional artists, alongside the talented individuals, groups and communities within the county, all of whom provide a vital stimulus for the growth and development of this unique culture.

In 2014 we are delighted to announce Corofin Traditional Festival as the recipients, who will be recognised at this concert in their honour.

Each year a new artistic piece will be commissioned by a Clare based artist to commemorate the annual award and presented at the concert. This is in keeping with glór’s promotion and support of the wider arts in Clare. The artist will draw inspiration from the Clare landscape. (With thanks to Clare County Council, in 2014 we are delighted to support Jane Murtagh, artist)

Johnny McEvoy

This nostalgic evening of song and story features all of Johnny's many hit songs, songs that are haunting, evocative and beautifully presented in Johnny’s inimitable style.

As a hobby, Johnny started singing with Mike Crotty and the pair called themselves The Ramblers Two. As was popular at the time, Johnny was singing a mixture of Irish ballads and American folk.  He decided to record Mursheen Durkin and the rest, as they say, is history.

The record went straight to the top of the Irish charts and made Johnny an overnight sensation. Armed with an acoustic guitar, harmonica and boyish good looks, Johnny took the country by storm. Early in 1967, he released his follow up single, Boston Burglar to even greater chart success. Johnny was now firmly established as one of the country's top folk acts. He toured America and played in Carnegie Hall, one of the highlights of his career to this day.

Damien Dempsey Solo

Born on Dublin’s Northside in 1975, Damien Dempsey is the quintessential Irish singer songwriter.

Described by The Times as ‘the Bob Marley of Ireland’ and by the Irish Examiner as ‘one of the most important and evocative singers of all time.’

Damien has released 5 original studio albums since his debut in 1997 which established him as an exciting new talent and attracted the attention of Sinéad O’Connor and the Hot House Flowers, among others. He has toured the world, playing his own headline shows and supporting legends such as Bob Dylan, Morrissey, Sinead O'Connor, The Pogues and Willie Nelson, and even U2 at their 2009 Croke Park show in Dublin on the first night of their 360 tour.

They vividly evoke life in encampments and on halting sites - and some good times – from the mid 1960’s through the Human Rights for Travellers activism of the 1980’s and the beginnings of self-development.
