Have a special jazz-filled Culture Night at The Source with Carole Nelson and her trio. Carole is a long- established musician and jazz composer whose career across many musical genres has gathered international awards and great critical acclaim. In 2015 she turned her attention to composing for jazz piano trio releasing the Carole Nelson Trio’s first album ‘One Day in Winter’ in 2017. The trio’s second album, ‘Arboreal’ was released early 2020 and went on to feature in UK’s All About Jazz Magazine’s best albums of the year. The theme of all things arboreal runs through the album. As Carole says on the album notes – “ ‘Arboreal’ began as a walk through my local woods in South Co. Carlow. I wanted to compose music that would express the living reality of a forest – from the mycelium network beneath my feet to the sheltering canopy above, with a sense of the deep interconnection of all living things. While I was composing, information about the climate emergency was reaching more and more of us and I felt the need to respond, as a composer, to the overarching concern of our times. I learned from activists and eco-philosophers about finding the […]

A one-of-a-kind cycle adventure hosted by the Grass Routes CC, in association with The Bike Place. This self guided Grass Routes Gran Fondo takes participants on a criss-cross 140km stage where they weave a path from rural boreen to boreen, taking in several mixed surface sectors on route to the finish. Influenced by the American DIY gravel events, but more in common with the European “classics”, the crew at Grass Routes CC have taken the no marshal self-guided approach and brought it to the road community; ever wonder where that small road goes? Well now you know! Type of bike required? This questions come up quite a bit and we try answer it as best we can but ultimately it comes down to riders choice. This is designed as a “classics” style road bike event, so some mixed surfaces are to be expected but all just about passable for a roadie (think Roubaix). The vast majority is paved rural roads and boreen (grass routes) which have pretty good surfaces, the boreens can be in mixed repair. The Bike Place will be riding road bikes with 25c standard tyres, some people will prefer to use a CX/Gravel bike with 28c+ road […]
