Robyn Kavanagh is 23 years old and lives in Wicklow Town. She is probably best known for her appearance on the popular RTE talent show, You’re a Star, when she was runner up. That was three years ago and since then she has been taking a break from the music. That was until recently, when she acquired a manager.
Robyn is currently working on her own music and learning to play guitar. ‘I have been writing my own songs for the last 3 years,’ she says, ‘and my aim is to get signed to a label and hopefully make the charts.’
Robyn’s sound is new age soul with mild rock influences and a hint of rhythm and blues. Her backing band for the night is the three Meakin brothers - Sounds interesting and not to be missed!
Avoca. Sean Olohan and Simon Keogh are welcome back to the Space Inside. The guys have been performing together for longer than they care to remember. Much of their time is spent giging all over Europe, and Switzerland is like a second home to them.
In March they launched their newest song “ The man who reached the sky” a song about Charles Barrington from Bray who was the first person to climb the Eiger. During St. Patricks weekend, the band also launched another song in France called “ A french connection” which will be used as the anthem for the twinning of Wicklow and Montigny. Always a toe-tapping evening when Avoca take the stage at the Space Inside.

Whether playing with his Blues/Rock outfit Kill Man Ten, on his own, or with his brand new outfit Joe O' Connor & The Mercenaries, his shows are always full of smokey Southern vocals and bluesy soulful guitar playing.
