Gardiner Street Gospel Choir @ The Heilx
The fabulous Gardiner Street Gospel Choir are performing at The Theatre @ The Helix, DCU on Saturday June 6th.
The choir have been together for just over 9 years & are at the centre of the weekly Gardiner Street Gospel Mass at St. Francis Xavier’s church in Gardiner Street since they formed. They’ve gone from strength to strength over the years with radio broadcasts on RTE to recording with Luka Bloom & Juliet Turner to their wonderful opening of the 2009 Irish Blog Awards.
I’m ashamed to say that after 7 years living in north Dublin city centre I only first saw the choir sing live about 6 weeks ago at their gospel mass & fell completely in love with them. I’ve heard recordings over the years but as you might expect, they don’t do them justice. I’m now hooked on it & Sunday evening without hearing them sing just throws me out of sorts 🙂
Conor McKeon & The Legends of Swing will be opening the show so it’s going to be a fantastic night of singing & finger-clicking!
Tickets are selling like hot cakes via The Helix website and the box office on 01 7007000.
