Sneem International Storytelling & Folklore Festival


9th - 11th November 2018

Jim Maher

In an age of Global Television, with its myriad images beamed into our living rooms, it is incumbent on us to shout STOP and press the pause button on our lives.


Since very early in his life, Jim Maher has had a fascination with all things cultural and humorous, evoking as he does, a time when Life was more leisurely, where laughter was heard and cherished at every hearth, ditch, pump and gatepost.


Jim takes us back in time to a world of storytelling which has been handed down over the centuries and is in danger of being lost in the technologies of today.


His stories remind us of what is in all of us: a roguish sense of humour, a taste for the foibles of life as it was lived.


Jim has taken his music and storytelling to the far flung reaches of the U.S.A., the Netherlands, Denmark and England, as well as the furthermost reaches of this island.


The beat of the bodhran, the glint in the eye, the narrative perfection: all of these are his to share with us, to rock us back in time to a place in the time before television.
