Info Dump

Info Dump
Gentle reader,

Another Info Dump, with my usual opinions of what is good and worth seeing...
In chronological order...

August 18
Andy Irvine appears in the Lobby with friends. Lots of friends. James Fagan & Nancy Kerr and Kate Burke & Ruth Hazleton, two very talented duos. James is from Sydney and plays a mean bouzouki, while his partner, Nancy is a fiddle player and singer. Kate & Ruth, from Canberra, play guitars, bouzouki and fiddle.

August 20
I have to admit as interesting as this one sounds, I'm not that interested. Steve Wickham, best know for playing with The Waterboys, will be performing at Sirius Arts Centre with his brother Henry Wickham. I think it's blues and not folksy. If someone is going to this, let me know what it was like.

August 20, 21 and 22 (Friday - Sunday)
Kieran Goss Tickets €20. He's taking over the Lobby for the entire weekend.

September 3
In the Everyman (I assume the Theatre, not the bar, but it's possible) as part of Cork Folk Festival 2004 Peadar O Riada, John Spillane, Paddy Keenan & Tommy Sullivan, Jimmy Crowley, & Noel Hill perform in "Celebrating 25 years". This Friday starts at 8pm for €20.

September 4
A little different, so here's the mention. As part of the Cork Folk Festival 2004 South Parish Community Centre has a set dance workshop between 10.30am and 2.30pm.
And An Crúiscín Lán celebrates "Songsmiths" at 8.30pm with John Leo Carter, Katell Keinig, Paul Tiernan, Mary Greene, Gavin Moore and Tommy Sullivan

September 5
Alphastates play Club One in Cork city.
More from the Cork Folk Festival 2004; Everyman Palace 8pm: Mary Black, Pat Crowley and Bill Shanley + Laoise Kelly and Steve Cooney + Jackie Daly and Seamas Creagh.
A bit more fun seems to be the Cork Singers' Club with Ron Kavanagh at 9.30pm in An Spailpín Fánach.

September 8 and 9
Bic Runga returns Cork (most of her album was written in West Cork) this time in An Crúiscín Lán. Any idea if this is a return visit? Sussex-born Tom Baxter is her support.

September 10
Saucy Monky tour in support of their new album Turbulence. On Friday September 10 they play Connolly's of Leap, West Cork.

September 11
The Kittser, David Kitt gets to the Vault. Feels like he's been away for a while... I'm guessing that there is new material to try out again.
Saucy Monky tour in support of their new album Turbulence. On September 11 They hit The Lobby.

September 19
Mark Geary gets the run of the Everyman Palace Theatre on Sunday.

September 25
Bell X1 do another run in Clon at De Barras...

September 26
and then Bell X1 finish the weekend off in the Opera house.

September 30
I know her name from somewhere... Marion Horgan launches her first book in the Sirius Arts Centre, Cobh. It's a collection of poetry, songs and prose relating to her childhood memories, schooldays, people and places in Cobh.

October 1
This Friday sees Halite playing in Cypress Avenue.

October 7
David Kitt returns to Cork in less than a month, this time in UCC (well I assume that University Of Cork is UCC).

October 10
James Yorkston & The Athletes – An Cruiscin Lan, Cork

take care,
Will
