Matt Molloy’s Yard Bar, April 23rd, 8 pm.
The inimitable John Spillane, one of Ireland’s most-loved singer-songwriters, is returning to Westport on Thursday, April 23. The famous Corkonian is currently touring the country, as he is about to release his new album, ‘100 Snow White Horses’. Fans can expect new songs from the album as well as some classics from his vast back catalogue.
With a career spanning four decades, Spillane has made 12 studio albums, won two Meteor Irish Music Awards, performed all over the world and played with such musical heavy-hitters as Jimmy McCarthy, Baaba Maal and Christy Moore. Musician, songwriter, performer, recording artist, storyteller, poet and dreamer – John Spillane is all of these things and more. During his shows, Spillane flits between captivating songs and beautiful poetry, all peppered with his roguish, irreverent Cork humour.
Doors 8pm; admission €15. Brought to Matt Molloy’s by the Westport Folk and Bluegrass Festival as part if its year-round series of gigs ahead of the festival weekend on June 5–7.
