Blues For Palestine featuring Karen Casey with Pat Crowley & Dizzy Blues Band. Blues For Palestine is an event to increase awareness of the plight of the people trying to exist there. It is small part of a national week long event, Palfest. http://www.palfestireland.net. Through many artistic events we express Solidarity and we commemorate the onslaught on Gaza this time two years ago. Amongst the atrocities were 551 dead children. That particular fact was highlighted at our Sandymount installation last year. Programme: 9:00 PM Doors Open. Free admission but donations for the educational charity selected by Palfest will be most welcome. 9:15 PM Screening of 'Small hands in handcuffs'. This is a documentary film made by a then 16 year old Anraí Carroll. He travelled to The West Bank and secretly interviewed children who were imprisoned and brutalised by the Israeli Army. https://vimeo.com/98181753 10:00 PM Karan Casey, a well known and loved figure in the Trad/Folk/Protest scene internationally, takes the opportunity to explore her great love of the songs of Nina Simone. She will be accompanied by our very special guest, Pat Crowley on piano. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9FTDE8e5bP0 11:30 PM or so, The Dizzy Blues Band, will take the night home.
