Traditional Irish Music
Jimmy’s Hall tells the true story of Leitrim farmer Jimmy Gralton, the only Irishman deported from his own country. His crime was to build a dance hall where he encouraged the local community to learn, to argue and to dream, but above all to dance and have fun. As the hall grew in popularity its free-spirited reputation brought it to the attention of the church and politicians who forced Jimmy to flee and the hall to close.
Casting Director Kelly Phelan writes:
“We’re currently auditioning for Jimmys Hall and we’ve realised that as part of the ensemble we need some brilliant session trad musicians. 30’S- 50’S, any instruments.
We’re holding a session tomorrow in the Abbey. It’s 90% playing but would also require some speaking and movement. Payment will be in line with experience and Abbey scales.
