CEOL is the Irish word for music –
Ceol Bar 191 Smith Street Brooklyn
John Munnelly 7:45 pm
Lara Ewen 9:15 pm
CEOL is the Irish word for music and that’s exactly what you will find any Wednesday night at the Song Club in Ceol Bar, 191 Smith Street, Brooklyn. A folksy and intimate bar room transports us back to the mid century Ireland but populated with the talented songsters from the Borough and beyond. This Wednesday’s two headed musical awesomeness is Lara Ewen and John Munnelly as features of the night.
The well known performer the genial and chirpy Niall Connolly is the MC host; he plays a few songs of his own and cracks a pun or two to keep things apace.
John is an International ASCAP Award winning songwriter for social commentary described as Dylanesque and compared to Neil Young and Johnny Flynn. He was recently featured ‘live’ on WFUV radio Show “Ceol na nGael” He is a singer of songs so diverse and different that we are lucky it’s just a feature set so he may get pinned down into the singer-songwriter genre and therefore we can take a good listen to him. Along with his usual fan favorites he is playing some tracks never-before-heard-live from his just released album HELLO WORLD as preparation for his upcoming Irish Tour. He is well known for his comedy dance anthem & video “Does my bum look big in this? Recommended.
Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Lara Ewen tells stories, most of which are true. The semi-autobiographical nature of her work blends both the real and the imagined, and the musical landscape she navigates dips into country, Americana, and singer/songwriter influences, drawing comparisons to musicians who sometimes get summarily lumped into the folk category, such as Patty Griffin, Lucinda Williams and Jonatha Brooke. Her new album, The Wishing Stone Songs, was just released in September 2013, and is available everywhere.
