Bowie Day – A Night of Music, Magic, and Meaning at Ryan’s Bar

Kilkenny, next Saturday the 20th – Get ready for a night of Bowie magic as “Bowie Day” returns to Ryan’s Bar. This special event, organised by Aoife Meagher and Kevin Bruce and hosted at one of Kilkenny’s favorite live music venues, aims to raise funds for a crucial cause – Kilkenny Helping the Homeless.

The musicians, fuelled by their passion for David Bowie’s iconic legacy, are generously donating their time to create an unforgettable live music experience. The event is not just a celebration of Bowie’s music but also a heartfelt initiative to make a positive impact on our local community.

A Musical Extravaganza for a Worthy Cause

The line-up for the evening is nothing short of spectacular, featuring performances by renowned artists such as Pete Holidai and Tony St. Ledger of the Trouble Pilgrims, formerly of the Radiators from Space. The Oddities will add their unique flair to the stage, and local special guests Tony Cleere, Aoife Meagher, Jan Murphy, Sylvia Knox, and Canice Kenealy promise to make the night truly exceptional.

But Bowie Day is not just about the music; it’s about community, compassion, and giving back. All proceeds from this FREE gig will go directly to Kilkenny Helping the Homeless, an organisation committed to supporting those facing homelessness and poverty in our locality.

Supporting Kilkenny Helping the Homeless

There will be a raffle on the night with a myriad of exciting Bowie prizes. Attendees can contribute to this noble cause by making donations on the night or conveniently online. Simply scan the QR code provided or visit the GoFundMe page dedicated to Kilkenny Helping the Homeless.

The issue of homelessness is a pressing concern, with reasons ranging from relationship breakdowns to termination notices. Government statistics often overlook the ‘hidden homeless,’ those living in shelters, or with friends and family in overcrowded conditions.

Kilkenny Helping the Homeless works tirelessly to provide essential resources such as food, personal items, and household necessities to those in need. By attending Bowie Day at Ryan’s Bar, you’re not just enjoying a night of fantastic music; you’re contributing to a cause that makes a real difference in the lives of your neighbours.

Join us this Saturday at 8.30pm for Bowie Day – a celebration of music, community, and compassion. Let’s come together to support Kilkenny Helping the Homeless and make a positive impact on the lives of those facing homelessness in our community.
