Weekly Cork gig guide: 11th-27th August 2015

Morgan O'Kane
This week in Cork: Morgan O'Kane, Mick Flannery live at St. Luke's, David Kitt and more.

After a couple of weeks trekking through the bars of Toronto, it's back to basics here on the blog with the return of the weekly Cork gig guide. Brooklyn banjo ace Morgan O'Kane returns to Ireland with his band in tow for a trio of Cork dates including The Crane Lane Theatre on Monday. This one's free and sure to be rowdy, sweaty and downright deadly.

Another musician doing a mini-tour of Cork this weekend is David Kitt who has partnered up with Margie Lewis to take in three shows down south this weekend including Coughlan's on Sunday evening.
