Cork Gig Guide: 25th-31st October 2016

This week in Cork: jazz, jazz & not jazz...

Cork is overrun by jazz-hand revelers for the bank holiday weekend. Those about Cork, pick up a copy of Totally Cork for my Cork Jazz Festival rundown. Also see Thursday's Cork Evening Echo for my chat with Sara Watkins who plays Coughlan's on Monday evening and click here for my chat with Cathy Davey ahead of Friday night's Live At St. Luke's session.
