Bird On The Wire is a celebration of the finest of Leonard Cohen’s work. Sensitively interpreted by this outstanding group of musician’s from Ireland.  Bird On The Wire came about as a commission in 2019 and has gone on to perform in some of Ireland’s most prestigious venues. We are absolutely delighted to be bringing the ensemble to Inchyra as part of the production's first UK tour. 

Acclaimed Irish artist Pauline Scanlon and her band The Whileaways front this celebration of many of Cohen’s best-loved works with crystal clear vocals and intricately woven harmonies. They lead a masterful collective including Will Merrigan on bass, Dave Clancy on keys, Eamon Murray on drums and Matthew Berrill on saxophone.

Pauline Scanlon galvanised the Irish music scene with her stunning debut album, Red Colour Sun almost 20 years ago. She has entranced audiences the world over with her distinctly delicate intensity. Pauline has performed on some of the world’s most prestigious stages including The Barbican in London, New York’s Carnegie Hall and The Sydney Opera house.

The Whileaways are three powerful forces in Irish roots music, Noelie McDonnell, Noriana Kennedy and Nicola Joyce combine to create a beguiling tapestry of harmonies, tradition and beautifully crafted original songs. Their sound is simply captivating, enthralling live audiences and securing their firm footing in roots music both in Ireland and internationally.

U.K fans of Leonard Cohen will journey through song, elegantly navigated by a perfect combination of voices befitting of the master himself. The sensitivity and respect these musicians have for the material is evident in every note. It is graceful, powerful and above all, beautiful.



TICKETING: Tickets for shows at Inchyra can be purchased online through our ticketing partner Skiddle. Tickets through Skiddle are print at home e-tickets meaning there are no delivery charges.Tickets are transferable but non-refundable – this means that, once you have purchased a ticket you can give it or sell it to someone but it cannot be refunded by the venue. This is standard practice for live shows as it would be impossible to run shows if you couldn’t rely on the ticket sales. If a show is sold out, Skiddle run a very effective re-sale facility, which can be accessed through your Skiddle account.

ACCESS TO INCHYRA: Inchyra is a private home which is opened up for shows. The car park will open an hour before the doors open, which is usually at 7pm. Please don’t arrive on the estate earlier than this.

SEATING FORMATS: Seating for all shows at Inchyra is unreserved.  We will tell you at the top of each show listing what style of show it is.  Here's a description of what to expect for each style of seating:

  • Cabaret Seating: jazz club style seating at small round tables with chairs, together with some bench seating for larger cabaret-style shows.  Chairs are padded, benches are not. You are advised to arrive early to grab the best seats.
  • Theatre Seating:  chairs laid out in rows facing the stage and allocated on a first come, first served basis.  Please be advised that due to the construction of the barn, seats in some places will have a supporting pole in their view, so again arrive early to grab the best seats. 
  • Standing:  there is very limited seating available at these shows.  

DISABLED ACCESS: If you require disabled access or seating for any of our shows, including standing, please contact us on 01738 860066 and we will do our best to arrange this for you. Please be advised that disabled seating at standing shows requires the construction of a ramp and raised stand so please contact us well in advance.  Priority will be given to wheelchair users. We cannot guarantee disabled seating if we are not notified in advance of the show.  There are disabled parking bays close to the venue, where again, wheelchair users will be given priority.  

FOOD: for most shows at Inchyra there is hot food available (usually street-style food) and we will detail this in the show information at the top of the page. Food is served from doors opening time. 

BAR: there is a licenced bar available at all shows with a good selection of beers, wines and spirits. 

UNDER 18s: we are all in favour of introducing children and young people to live music at an early age, however, our experience is that below a certain age the vast majority of children find big loud shows too much which is not great for them or for the rest of the audience. We will give a minimum age which in our experience is suitable for each show. Please do not buy tickets for children below the stated age as we will not be able to give them access.
