Weekly Cork Gig Guide: 30th September - 6th October

Cal Folger Day
Alessi's Ark
Alessi's Ark arrives to save us from the rain...

It's folk fatale this week as Cyprus Avenue hosts two incredibly gifted songwriters from opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean. Alessi Laurent-Marke aka Alessi's Ark returns to Cork with new album The Still Life released earlier in the year. Check back in later in the week for a full interview with the young-yet-prolific Hammersmithian. Joining Alessi on the night will be the inimitable Cal Folger Day who plays her first show in Cork since playing a G-Man Presents... session (with Angel Olsen in the Half Moon) back in May.

Also going down around town this week:

An Aula Maxima lunchtime concert with the legendary Iarla Ó'Lionáird in UCC. Start time is 1.10pm this Friday.
