Weekly Cork Gig Guide: 16th-22nd September


This week in Cork: James Yorkston, Lisa Hannigan, The Mighty Stef and more..

Friday evening is all about culture. For an ever-growing list of what's happening music-wise around Cork, see here. Absolutely no stranger to these shores, Scottish bard James Yorkston visits Cyprus Avenue earlier in the week with a date in the Caroline Street venue on Thursday evening.

*Beginning mid-month on the 19th, the 10th annual Kinsale Arts Festival kites blue-skywards the following weekend with a mix of music, art, performance and discussion descending upon Cork’s most famous fishing village. For the full programme see www.kinsaleartsfestival.com. Also note Virginia string-band The Hackensaw Boys’ double date in The Crane Lane Theatre (16th & 17th) and local promoters Alliance Promotions link up with long-running Dublin rockers The Mighty Stef for a date in The Crane Lane Theatre (20th).

*Stuffed in there somewhere is the 2014 Clonakilty International Guitar Festival. Strumming and sliding across multiple Clon venues from the 18th until the 21st, the west Cork whammy welcomes a shed-load of wonderfully gifted digit warriors including limber-fingered Leeds local Jon Gomm, capital riff rebels Girl Band, south-eastern skywalkers Band of Clouds and more. As accessible to the expert fretboard fanatic as it is to the chord-curious amateur.




*Originally published in the September edition of Cork monthly culture magazine: Insert Title
