Marin Swords is a poet and a Wicklow Writer. His short film ‘Kathleen’s Child’ is a series of poems and stories about growing up in Ireland, in a time when some things were never talked about. ‘I called it Kathleen’s Child – a collection of Poems, and Things That Should Have Been Said,’ says Martin. Using family photos and other pictures, and with the help of poems and hindsight, the story comes alive on the small screen. Martin will present this short film on the night, which he hopes will inspire other poets and writers to record their memories for others to share. A compelling and touching story well worth seeing.
Jj Manning Roots Duo. Jj ‘thumbpicks’ Manning formed the Coffee House String Band in 2011, in an attempt to bring early acoustic blues, ragtime and roots music to the masses.

Vid and music by the band can be viewed via facebook on Dublinsundergroundbeat.
Ray and Postle are a two piece acoustic set from Wicklow town, featuring Rachel McDermott on guitar and vocals and Anthony Dickenson on guitar. Their music varies from high energy tunes to chilled out numbers, and they play a mixture of original pieces and some catchy popular cover songs. This is their first gig playing together and hopefully the first of many to come.
Famous Last Words bring their unique harmonic covers of classic pop tunes to the Space Inside Live Night session. An accomplished covers quartet with an impressive set list, their aim is to make music to make people happy!
