Mutantspace arts skills exchange will be presenting their Fourth Bloomsday this coming Saturday at the Sextant Bar on Albert Quay, Cork from 5 – 7pm.
Now in its fourth year, this Cork event has become one of the most relaxed ways of getting in touch with James Joyce’s famous novel, Ulysses. Anchored by Cork singer songwriter Ken Cotter, this is a very informal affair where the emphasis is on having fun.
Ken is fresh back from the US, where he was playing songs from his soon-to-be-released album ‘Anatomy Of A Goddess’, to enthusiastic music and Ulysses fans in New York and Philadelphia.
On Bloomsday this year Ken will be joined onstage by guests Mark Slade and The Eden Singers. This 4 piece vocal group will bring to life the old-time songs that are found throughout the novel.
The audience is always actively encouraged to get involved in any way they see fit and this year will be no different. Feel free to read or sing or just relax and enjoy the free food and wine provided courtesy of the Sextant!
The gig is an early evening event starting at 5 o clock. Admission is free and there is free food and wine for those who arrive early and while stocks last!

‘He heard them as a boy in Ringabella, Crosshaven, Ringabella, singing their barcaroles. Queenstown habour full of Italian ships. Walking, you know, Ben, in the moonlight with those earthquake hats. Blending their voices…’
[from The Sirens Episode of Ulysses by James Joyce]
