Culture Vultures:


Alice Maher

Maher is one of Ireland’s most respected and influential artists. Her work engages at the fault lines of culture where movements, media and languages overlap and intermingle.  It touches on a wide range of subjects often reprising and re-working mythic and vernacular narratives. Over the years Maher’s work has sought to map, reflect and challenge the social and historic narratives of this country.  In particular,  she is recognised as undermining conventional expectations of female identity. Indeed all Maher’s work is linked together, sinuously, by drawing as a common thread.

Colm Keegan

Dublin poet/writer Colm Keegan was the All Ireland Slam Poetry Champion in 2010, and since then has established himself as one of Ireland’s most important young spoken word artists. His poetry performances are widely viewed on YouTube; his poems, meanwhile, evoke what it’s like to live in a Dublin that avoids cliched description. Keegan’s poetry, observes writer/poet Dermot Bolger, ‘brims with frenetic energy and a hard-earned street-wise lyricism, bereft of false notes or unearned experience.’

Marlene Enright

Based in the small west County Cork town of Ballincollig, songwriter/singer Marlene Enright plays to her strengths of delivering harmonies that find foothold in tightly structured arrangements. Her recently released debut solo album, Placemats and Second Cuts, has positioned her as a songwriter who is quickly gaining friends in all the right places. Written over the space of a full year, the songs mix folk, contemporary roots and classic R&B. The album, admits Marlene, treads ‘the fine line between feeling comfortable in your own skin and feeling totally lost at sea.’
