Just back from the wilds of Cape Cod and my 2 week residency in a dune shack. It was incredible and I’ve definitely checked off one thing from my Bucket List. Shack on the beach, check!
I hit the ground running last week and started my Fall tour with The Nualas already as well as tv and radio to ramp things up. Also, my new coaching videos are continuing now that I’m back; here’s the newest addition to my Youtube channel, ‘The Hunter Gatherer Brain’ and how you can manage things when it gets the better of you. Get ready to rock the rest of this year, and we’re off!
I’m taking the next few weeks off from my busy touring schedule with The Nualas to work on my voice coaching videos and singing. This summer I’ll be jetting off to Cape Cod for a 2-week stay at a shack on the beach, a residency that I was awarded by the OCARC in Provincetown. Very excited! And terrified… I’ll be expected to chowcase any work I’ve accomplished during my stay for a public performance. So if you’re in the neighborhood on August 25th, come on over to Ptown and see the madness. Watch this space… Ciao!
Don’t forget we’re in the Pavilion Theatre this Saturday, March 11 8pm book here for tickets. We’ll be looking for you so make sure you come. We have all the names and addresses of people in Dublin who have laughed or gaffawed in the past week and we will be expecting you!
This Saturday, March 11 The Nualas are making a long awaited return to the wonderful Pavilion Theatre, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin 8pm 01 231 2929 for tickets. The lovely staff and people of one of our fave theatres are welcoming us back with open arms and even putting on a pig roast for us! (Actually, that isn’t exactly true, Nuala just wants it to happen so she wrote it. Pig-on-a-spit isn’t available that weekend so there’s just a cash bar instead.)
Come on down, people, you don’t want to miss this one. Trust us. You’re gonna love what Nuala’s done to her hair.
I’m heading to one of our fave haunts this side of the Shannon on Saturday, February 18th, it’s the Riverbank Theatre, Newbridge, Co. Kildare 8pm (045) 448 327 for tickets. It’s The Nualas’ new show with brand new songs and commentary of the state of the world at large (yes, including any madmen, idiots, and eejits who may have recently been elected to office). Expect loads of laughs, spanx, and even a few guffaws thrown in there. You won’t be able to breathe with the laughter. In fact you may cry and even flirt with weeing your pants. It’s that funny.
Come on down and join the party this weekend, see yi’s there!
Come all ye down to Howth town this Saturday, January 28th ’cause I’m kicking off 2017 with a cracker of a night with comedy trio The Nualas. Get yer glad rags on, rattle yer jewels, and come on down to The Abbey Tavern, Howth, Co. Dublin, 8pm 01 839 0307 for tickets. It’s our first time playing to the good people of Howth and it’s going to be a hoolie and a half! Come on down and bring your nearest and dearest, it’s all go! Nuala even invited Uncle Paddy down, he’s always good for a laugh or two.
We’re almost through to the other side and 2017 is shaping up to be another corker! Keep you’re eyes peeled for our new show coming to a theatre near you, we’ll be travelling the length and breadth of the country once again with more glamour, glitz, and glorious fun for our wonderful audiences! I’d tell you what we all got for the Christmas but we still haven’t recovered… we’re still 90% Cadbury’s chocolate and going into sugar rehab to detox from all the indulgence. Watch this space… see you all in 2017!
A big thanks to all who came out to support The Nualas this year at our gigs, it was a bumper crop of great shows and venues. It’s been an amazing 2016, I can’t remember a better year for work, gigs, and voice coaching opportunities. I have to say a big thanks to the audiences, workshop participants, and voice coaching clients that I’ve had the privilege to work with this year. I feel very blessed indeed and want to remember a quote that was given to me at the beginning of this year:
‘There comes a time in life when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. Surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right. Pray for the ones who don’t. Life is too short for anything else. Falling down is part of life; getting back up is living.’
Thank you and see you next year in 2017! Love, light, and music, M.xxx
