Hailing from Florida, Jim White, songrwiter, film-maker and visual artist, comes to Waterford, courtesy of Subterranean Sounds. Jim released his now legendary debut album, ‘Wrong-Eyed Jesus’ in 1997 and played his part alongside Wilco, Ryan Adams and The Jayhawks in creating the Americana movement. Talking Heads’ David Byrne is such a fan that he signed him to his Luaka Bop label; and since then White has released a string of high quality albums.

His gothic Americana can have a cinematic feel, incorporating many curious and illuminating characters and is instilled with a sense of the broken beauty of humanity. A Jim White show is an quirky experience and no two gigs are the same. He mixes songs from his formidable back catalogue with quirky tales of his experiences from life on the road.

Jim White, accompanied by guitar virtuoso Clive Barnes, plays

Just about a year ago a set of nine puppets made their first public appearance during a filming session at the Dungarvan Shopping Centre.

They were made by members of the Irish Wheelchair Association (IWA) Resource Centre, during an eight month project led by local artist and writer Corina Duyn.

Corina, also a member of the IWA, was asked in 2014 if she could facilitate puppet project. This Life Outside the Box project received funding from Create – Artist in the Community Scheme, part of the Arts Council of Ireland. The IWA staff provided practical support every step of the way.

The making of the puppets and props were a weekly adventure into learning new skills, building friendships, sharing lots of laughter, but also brought a huge sense of empowerment. Words like “I found me again”, and “I did not know I could

“He shall not hear the bittern cry In the wild sky where he is lain”

A call to arms, War Poet Francis Ledwidge (Ethan Dillon) is torn between his love for Shivvie (Katie O'Kelly) his friend and confidante and Ellie (Amy O'Dwyer). In spite of their fears he enlists in Captain Dunsany's (Ian Meehan) regiment and is dispatched to Suvla Bay.

Excelling as a sniper, Ledwidge distinguishes himself at Gallipoli but the poet remains conflicted. Gerard Humphreys' play explores the poet's personal struggles with war and his early life as a trade union activist in a class ridden society on the eve of revolution. LEDWIDGE presents its subject in the context of his art and politics, bringing to life the adventurous spirit of Ireland's greatest war poet.

This production will celebrate one hundred years since Francis Ledwidge's death and 20 years presenting new
