Live at the Grandel Theatre • Streaming at https://metroplays.org

If the adventure and magic of "Moana" and "Encanto" delighted you, don't wait to make plans to see "Spells of the Sea!" Finley Frankfurter is a 15-year-old fisherwoman who is terrible at fishing.

Together, this unlikely pair begins an adventure through the ocean to find the Elixir of Life, an elusive remedy that will save Finley’s father from a mysterious illness.

TWO SHOWS!!! Focal Point presents the legendary Irish band all the way from Sligo, Dervish! This will be one of Focal Point’s largest shows of the year! Dervish is typically known to play MUCH larger venues than ours so don’t miss your chance to experience them up close and personal in our cozy venue! At the end of 2019 Dervish received a prestigious lifetime achievement award from the BBC, a fitting tribute to the band after over 30 years of recording and performing all over the world. Described by the BBC as “an icon of Irish music”, the band have played at festivals from Rio de Janeiro to Glastonbury. They accompanied the Irish President on state visits to Latvia and Lithuania and Prime Minister of Ireland on a trade mission to China as Cultural Ambassadors taking time out to play an impromptu session on the Great Wall of China. Dervish have a line up which includes some of Ireland’s finest traditional musicians, fronted by one of the country’s best-known singers, Cathy Jordan.

The Guardian newspaper commented: “Dervish are simply brilliant. . they carry Irish history with them.” Dervish are long-established as one of the biggest names in Irish music internationally. They’re renowned for live performances, which match dazzling sets of tunes with stunning interpretations of traditional songs. Their studio and live albums – 13 to date – make up one of the outstanding catalogues in Irish music. They are regular visitors to the US, performing sell out shows from coast to coast. However, their fan base stretches across several continents, including Europe, Asia, and South America. They were the first Irish band to play the world’s biggest music festival, Rock in Rio, performing to an estimated 250,000 people. Over the years they’ve been on the same bill as artists such as James Brown, Neil Young, Sting and even Iron Maiden! In 2018 Dervish are still busy touring internationally and still making plans. The band are excited about signing for the renowned US roots label Rounder Records and released their first album on the label in 2018 featuring guest appearances by artists including Vince Gill, Steve Earl, David Gray and many others.

All six members of Dervish are steeped in the musical traditions of counties Sligo and Leitrim in north-west Ireland. It’s an area which matches Atlantic coastline with storied mountains and rural landscapes. It has inspired a host of musicians, artists and writers, including the Nobel Prize-winning poet W. B. Yeats. In 2004 Dervish were given their home towns highest honour when they were given the freedom of Sligo City in a civic reception, an accolade they share with Yeats himself, Michael Flatley and Countess Markievicz. Dervish were formed in 1989 when four of the founding members met while playing informal sessions in the pubs of Sligo. – Shane Mitchell (accordion),Liam Kelly (flute/whistle), Brian McDonagh (mandola/mandolin) and Michael Holmes (bouzouki). They were soon joined by Roscommon born singer and bodhran (drum) player Cathy Jordan, and later by all Ireland Fiddle Champion Tom Morrow in 1998. It’s a remarkable and at times electric combination – “capable of playing with note-perfect accuracy and perfect control at nearly supersonic levels” (Irish Voice, New York).

But Dervish marry technical brilliance with a rare sensibility, born of an understanding of the music and many years of playing together. The Irish Times said their “integrity makes the group a formidable heir to the throne abandoned by The Bothy Band, if not a serious contender for The Chieftains’ international space.” The News Journal (Delaware) described Dervish as: “The most compelling, most soulful Irish traditional folk band playing today. If you ever find yourself in the beautiful town of Sligo on the wild Atlantic way, check out the music sessions that take place in many establishments. The members of Dervish enjoy playing tunes back where it all began.

Most Americans spend at least 90% of their day indoors so the quality of the indoor environment as well as the air we breathe matter a lot. If you relate to any of these points:

• Have you ever had your carpets replaced or a room repainted and noticed strong lingering odors that made you dizzy?

• Do you cook frequently with a gas stovetop and not use the exhaust hood?

• Do you have visible mold somewhere in the house?

• Do you have asthma or allergies to dust or mold?

…then this Coffee Talk is for you! Howard Katzman will point out many things to look out for in your home and how to reduce such risks. He will structure his presentation around attendees’ interests and concerns, so please send your questions to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Curator Sarah Bernhardt of Intersect Arts Center presents Blue Hour January 23-March 30th. After the spectacle of the sunset and before the promises of sunrise, the world is gradually cloaked in shades of blue. Blue hour. Neither night, nor day. Neither here, nor there. Both. And.  This exhibition explores times of transition, liminal space, and metamorphosis. Change is one of the surest experiences of the human condition, and the hovering poetic moments of each day both in and out of time, the blue hour, offers us a space to be fully present in the in-between. Work from over 50 artists across the country invites us to consider and connect with varied experiences and interpretations of the Blue Hour. 

Intersect’s Dovetail Reception February 28th from 6-8pm will feature 5 courses of International cuisine crafted by local refugee chefs. Coordinated by Welcome Neighbor, the menu will include Iraqi, Indian, and Egyptian dishes. Learn more and register for this unique event at: https://www.intersectstl.org/dvtl 

RESILIENCE Dance Company will perform a poignant and memorable contemporary piece choreographed by David Marchant, that asks the question "What refuge or grace would we hope to find in a foreign land when the time comes that we must abandon home?
