Cork-city based festival Right Here Right Now has added a number of new acts to its line-up including iconic Irish rock band Interference, singer-songwriter Glen Hansard, and folk act Caoilian Sherlock.
The festival has announced the second batch of shows, joining the likes of Mary Coughlan, Wallis Bird, John Spillane and Junior Brother over the weekend of November 12-14. This will be the fourth year that the event will be taking place in the city, with performances set to take place at the Cork Opera House, Coughlan's and Cyprus Avenue.
Mary Coughlan, Wallis Bird, Loah and Niamh Regan will take the stage on November 12th for an all-female billing accompanied by the Cork Opera House Concert Orchestra. The Orchestra will also be joining traditional folk acts John Spillane and Junior Brother the following evening on November 13th.
On Saturday 13 at 4 pm, songwriter Lorraine Nash will be joining up with emerging artist Míde Houlihan for a double headline show at Coughlans. The combination of Nash's sometimes humorous, sometimes heart wrenching songwriting and Houlihan's songs full of lyrical beauty and vivid imagery is sure to make for an unforgettable afternoon. Tickets are €15 and are available here.
Laidback blues-folk artist Caoilian Sherlock has performed with bands such as The Shaker Hymn and The Tan Jackets. Brandishing a guitar since the age of fifteen and having toured around Ireland with the likes of Joan Shelley and Nathan Salsburg, the Cork-born artist is one to look out for. His newest EP, Big Child, will be debuting on the eve of the festival on November 10th. At 4 pm on Sunday 14th, he will be taking the stage at Coughlans. Tickets are €15 and are available here now.
Legendary Irish rock band Interference will perform alongside special guest Glen Hansard at Cyprus Avenue on Sunday, November 14 at 7 pm. The musical collective finds its origins in frontman Fergus O'Farrell schooldays, initially forming the band with schoolmate James O’Leary and later joining forces with Malcolm MacClancy to write songs. Their performance will be celebrating the upcoming release of the documentary film Breaking Out which is based on O'Farrell's life. The singer passed away in 2016 after a long battle with muscular dystrophy. Tickets are €35 available and are available here.
