similar to the river artwork.
Colm will hold a week long residency at NYC’s Irish Arts Center in May. Joining him will be fellow Irish musicians Utsav Lal & Loah. Performances happen May 30, 31 & June 1. Tickets can be purchased here.
Colm joined Paul Noonan, Cathy Davey, Duke Special, John Sheahan, James Vincent McMorrow, Paul Cleary, Gemma Hayes, jape, Lisa O’Neill and Declan O’Rourke to create Starboard Home, a collection of songs that reflect on the relationships between the Port, the City and the Liffey through song, ranging from elegant electronic pop to sublime trad inspired moments and crafted song-writing. The Irish Times review can be found here.
Colm has a slew of gigs coming up this spring & summer including the Choice Music Prize live event for Best Irish Album of 2015 nominees. The award will be given on the night at Vicar Street which features performances by all of the nominees. The show will be broadcast live on Today FM in a special four hour extended programme during the Paul McLoone show. On March 12, RTÉ 2 will air a programme as well.
This gig will be followed up closely by a trip to Kilkenny TradFest. Then in May Colm’s off to Brighton for The Great Escape Festival and a month later he heads to Washington DC for an event celebrating Ireland 100 at the Kennedy Center! More details on that gathering coming soon. Back to Ireland then for Castlepalooza in Tullamore & the Ireland Folk Festival in Killarney.
