David Kitt and Jape are the first two musical acts that have been invited to perform with Donal Dineen for the Model’s series A Month of Sundays.

Developed as a collaboration between the Model Arts and Niland Gallery and radio DJ and filmmaker Donal Dineen, A Month of Sundays sees Donal leaving the Today FM radio studio behind and bringing “The Small Hours” to the stage.

He will be in residence each Sunday evening in November to present his personal picture show of music and images brought together under the banner, “Music’s My Excuse”.

As well as putting on a musical picture show, this series at the model will be an opportunity to showcase some of the best contemporary musical talent with performances from Lisa Hannigan, Chequerboard, Jape, Si Schroeder, James Yorkston (+ The Athletes), Somadrone, Windings (Steve from giveamanakick) David Kitt, Saso, and Cane 141.

“All of the acts I’ve invited to play have at some stage been an inspiration to me,” said Donal.

“Sometimes it only takes a sound to get an idea going and the camera rolling; once the spark is lit the dialogue is ongoing. Opportunities to actually collaborate don’t come around that often however, which is where the Model comes in. It’ll be a festival’s worth of music spread out over four weeks”

Each Month of Sundays gig starts at 7.30pm and is held at the Model in Sligo.

Tickets are priced ?18/15 per show and available from 071 914 1405 or through tickets@modelart.ie.
