Love songs and food to love.
Sarah Mc Court ( Soprano) and Brendan Mc Court (piano) will be back on Feb 14th to entertain us with a candlelight concert of opera and love songs.
Some interesting trivia: Saint Valentine is also the partron saint of beekeepers 'charged with ensuring the sweetness of honey and the protection of beekeepers'. Bearing this in mind our food focus for this event will be locally produced honey, including some from our own hives in the woods at Listoke. We are thrilled to be joined by local beekeeper Eoghan Mac Giolla Coda and his award winning produce Lannleire honey. Eoghan will give a short talk in the tearooms and will be available to answer questions on his craft. You will also be able to purchase Lannleire honey on the night.
As with previous concerts, our promise to you is that you will be well fed, warm and entertained with music for the soul. The format for the evening will remain the same as for previous concerts: Food in the tearooms with a cosy wood burining stove and a talk with a food producer, followed by intimate concert by candlelight in the music room and back out to the tearooms for coffee, dessert and a chance to chat with the performers
