Irish to the Core
Rhumbelow Theatres

Rhumbelow DBN: Friday March 24 - Sunday March 26

St Patrick’s Day at The Rhumbelow. South Africa’s very own Irish minstrel, Dave Monks presents an evening of fun, party and above all sing-along Irish music.

Dave Monks has a proven repertoire of rousing Irish favourites and between songs, he delivers a touch of the blarney in his collection of Irish tales and jokes. Monks was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland which gives more than a touch of real authenticity to this Irish music and humour.

The folksy feel of the music is accentuated by his mastery of the fiddle, banjo, guitar, harmonica, tin whistle and vocals. To be sure, there’s nothing that lifts the spirits more than a rousing evening of sing-along, clap-along Irish music. Remember to wear something green.
