For Christmas 2021, The Cáca Milis Cabaret welcomes you to our live theatre setting in the Wexford Arts Centre for an eclectic evening of the arts – with full bar, cabaret seating and festive vibe – delivered in the joyous spirit of old time Music Hall, presenting all original work with an emphasis on artistic excellence.
Cabaret founder and hostess Helena Mulkerns will accompanied by piano man and singer-songwriter Josh Johnston, and among the acts performing, there’ll be some old favourites and some new guests.
One old favourite is Dubliner Stephen James Smith, a poet and playwright central to the rise of the vibrant spoken word scene in Ireland today. He’s performed his poetry at high profile events and festivals around the world. His unique 2017 poem, ‘My Ireland’, has been viewed over 300,000 times online!
Another is Acko. A musician who was originally part of the Dublin 90s busking scene, he’s also a producer, and produced and co-wrote two critically acclaimed albums as a member of The Revelator Orchestra, with Peter Murphy. He’ll play from his first solo album “St. Dominic’s Disappearance” out on the 25th of February.
New guests include Molli Meaghan-Tresson, who joins us with a debut selection of songs, including a Christmas single released last year as a fundraiser for the homeless, which received national attention. Taylor Dench is also an new performer, who was inspired to start writing his own songs during the 2020 lockdown. Both originally performed at the Wexford Arts Centre’s “Summer Voices” series of emerging talent.
