The Glór Sessions is Dublin's only weekly music and poetry event. Normally held in the basement of The International Bar in Wicklow Street, it is staging a special showcase for the Dublin Writers Festival. Hosted by Stephen James Smith, it offers an energetic night of openness and sharing, a good mix of experience and inexperience, where the supportive atmosphere and no nonsense policy gives performers a safe platform from which to shine. The Glór Sessions has featured on RTÉ's Radio 1 Arts Show Arena and in The Irish Times' Cultural Review 2009.
Performers on the night include poets Stephen James Smith, Kalle Ryan, Colm Keegan and Noel Sweeney, musicians Fiach and Enda Reilly and actor Melissa Nolan
