Cork Gig Guide: 1st-7th November

Kristin Hersh - Triskel (Thursday)
This week in Cork: Kristin Hersh, The Buzzcocks, Oh Pep!, Sara Forslund & more...

Kristin Hersh
Thursday 3 November | Triskel Christchurch | 8pm, €22
Whether being absorbed through the music of Throwing Muses and 50FootWave or consumed from the pages of her moving memoires and illustrated children's books, Kristin Hersh continues to be a voice to be reckoned with. The release of new album and book, “Wyatt At The Coyote Palace”, provides fans with an intimate evening filled with songs and readings from Hersh herself within the hallowed hallows of Triskel Christchurch.*


Post-jazz heads have no cause for a comedown with another full week of music set for the next seven days. Punk fans will be queuing for The Buzzcocks (Cyprus Avenue - Tuesday), folkies taking a drive to Ballydehob for Sara Forslund (Levis' - Friday), pianist enthusiasts will take to Tobin Street  for their Steinway Piano Solo Series with Huw Warren (Triskel - Friday) and indie fans can make their way to Caroline Street for Saint Sister (Cyprus Avenue - Sunday).
