Lingo Festival


┬áLast up for October was the opening night of Lingo Festival, a new spoken word festival – the first of its type in Ireland (which as they say, is pretty amazing, given how much we all love talking!). I typically wouldn’t include spoken word (or theatre, or dance for that matter) on Gigaholic because I try to keep it exclusive to music, but there was a bit of music at this event, so it snuck in!

Spoken word poet (and Poetry Slam Ireland winner) John Cummins brought together a group of talented musicians to form John Cummins and the Inkloosifs. His performance was inspiring, but Melissa Chouikrat of the Sacreblues band stole the show!
