This November 23rd at 8pm The Model is delighted to be hosting the now annual ‘Divas for DVAS’, a night celebrating women with all proceeds going towards the safe house project by DVAS. DVAS (Domestic Violence Advocacy Service) is a local service, protecting women affected by domestic violence throughout Sligo, Leitrim and West Cavan.
‘Divas for DVAS’ features an all star line up with some of Ireland’s most versatile female talents. Our ‘divas’ including Aileen Concannon with Eoin Troy, Claudia Schwab, Margo Barrow, Sarah Crummy & Deirdre Farrell, Margaret Kilcoyne with Nigel Robinson of Big Papa Blues Band and Mark Conway of Grizzly Dippers. We’re delighted to welcome back Cathy Jordan who generously supported the event last year. This year Cathy will perform with niece Síofra Jordan, who has also been taking Sligo’s music scene by storm with Blind Fox and the re-formed Wagamuffins (Ex Ragamuffins). Cork based singer songwriter Foxglove who recently wowed audiences at her performance on the acoustic stage at The Model during Sligo Live will make the journey back to Sligo and we will round off the evening with a guest appearance by Berlin based Irish singer -songwriter Nina Hynes.
