Marlene set to perform at Beaulieu on Saturday night

Rising talent Marlene Enrightis set to perform for Highlanes Gallery’s Culture Vultures, Highlanes Gallery’s summer salon style evening event at Beaulieu House and Garden on Saturday 12th August.

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.’

Highlanes Gallery has been marking its 10th Birthday with an exciting programme of exhibitions and events. The gallery has teamed up once again with Culture Vultures, a multi-strand contemporary salon-style event curated/presented by Irish Times arts writer/critic, Tony Clayton-Lea.

Highlanes Municipal Art Gallery, in association with Culture Vultures, is delighted to present a unique evening at Beaulieu House, Drogheda, Co Louth, on Saturday August 12. The line-up features acclaimed spoken word poet, Colm Keegan, a special public interview one of Ireland’s most respected and influential artists, Alice Maher, and the aforementioned Marlene Enright.

With tickets €25 each (including glass of wine & return bus from Highlanes Gallery, Drogheda to Beaulieu House*), this event has all the elements of a memorable evening. Remember the date, Saturday August 12th at 8.00pm, with booking through Eventbrite. * To register for the bus, please email Leo Glynn at once you have booked your Culture Vultures ticket. For those who wish to, the Bus Meeting Time at Highlanes Gallery is 7.30pm.
