Local Galway group The A Capella Knights will take to the stage at An Taibhdhearc Theatre on Saturday 10th September at 8 pm. The concert will be performed in a capella and will feature varied genres of songs that reflect the group’s musical influences.
The A Capella Knights were formed in late 2013 by members Francis Casey, Mike Davenport, Keith Davies, Brian Hickey & Gary Mc Donald. Coming from a background of choral singing experience, they wanted to create a male voice group reflecting their musical experiences. In the past three years, they have worked steadily, becoming better known, and building a repertoire that encompasses sacred music and rock songs, via gospel, soul and all points in between.
Speaking about the upcoming concert, Gary Mc Donald said “after performing in various locations around Galway including The Cathedral and St Nicholas’ Church, we are delighted to be singing in An Taibhdhearc Theatre for the first time. The theatre provides an intimate environment for the audience to enjoy our varied repertoire.”
The Knights are very excited to have special guest Sinead Davies joining them for the concert. Sinead was trained in musical theatre and drama and has performed in a wide variety of plays and musicals in London and across the U.K. Most recently Sinead appeared as Mrs Medlock in the Secret Garden at London’s Ambassadors Theatre.
