Here’s Everything You Need To Know About The Winter Festival Coming To Cork

James Fenton

If you think Ireland’s festivals will come to an end once summer is over then think again.

Quiet Lights in Cork is coming back for a second year and is set to take over the city with international folk music, traditional tunes and experimental talent.

Described as a ‘small-scale festival with a big heart’, the line-up will include traditional favourites such as Cormac Begley. Liam O’Connor and Lankum. Ye Vagabonds will be leading the folk charge while Scottish small piper Brighde Chaimbuel will also be making the trip to the Rebel City.

In what they see as a ‘showcase of their ambition for the future’, other international acts will be invited such as American Peter Broderick and London-based musician Rozi Plain.

The festival is the brainchild of music company Islander and venues taking part include Triskel Christchurch, Live at St Luke’s, Coughlan’s Live, Sirius Arts Centre, The Roundy, St Peter’s, The Chapel at Griffith College, and the newly reopened Kino.

It all takes place from Friday November 22 until Sunday November 24, and you can find out more information here.
